This is one of those terrific breakfast places you hope to find on every trip. The service, food and coffee were all excellent. The shop in the back of the restaurant was fun and a little dangerous to the wallet!

Right off Pope Avenue but set back from the road, a guy could miss this place. You dont want to do that. Even if you can afford fancy 5 star hotels. Six of us are there this week on our last day at Hilton Head....More
