The brunch here is outstanding. Get there early and usually there isn't a line. The service is wonderful and the menu is amazing. My favorite is the three potato hashbrowns with two eggs. You can't go wrong.

The menu changes daily and is always delicious. It's small and intimate, yet has a complete bar and good beer and wine selection. This up and coming area of Columbia will... More
