We had breakfast here one morning. Had passed by it a few times in our other travels and decided to stop in. I had an omelette and my wife had the waffles and both of us were pleasantly stuffed when were finished.

This is a great place to have breakfast in downtown Charleston - pretty much a traditional, Southern diner breakfast. No frills, but smiling faces and friendly service.

We stopped in here after arriving for lunch and the food was a lot to eat but very reasonably priced. It is located in the campus area and most of the clients there were college students. Great place for them to eat. The food was very good.

Whipped eggs with buttermilk are a wonderful touch, you have to have a pancake side along with your eggs and bacon. I came during off-hours around 10 a.m. so the service was very fast. If you like a bright and Diner this is the place to go. Located right off of the Charleston College it is convenient to the green... More

Wonderful homemade breakfast at reasonable prices. We had the bacon, sausage and eggs breakfast and it was done exactly the way we asked. The portions are just right and the service was very friendly and attentive. We liked it so much that we went back the next day and had the omelet, it was very good and very filling.

Staff was super friendly and helpful. Food was great and inexpensive. Terrific menu with lots of choices. Something for everyone in our family with very different tastes. Only downside is that it's a little warm in there.
