I used to stop here on my way to work to pick up a couple of bagels. The flavors were wonderful, with just the right amount of nuts or raisins. However, when I purchased some just the other day, they were awful! No, flavor or...More

I used to love this place, but haven't been in years. I was in the area and stopped in for a smoked salmon bagel. The bagel selection was limited... the bagel wasn't toasted enough to be crispy/crunchy... there was only cream cheese in the center...More

We like eating here on Sunday mornings and usually get breakfast. I recommend the breakfast bowls, but they have some other great things on the menu. It's nothing special, looks like an old time diner, but sometimes this is exactly what you want. The folks...More

The restaurant itself leaves a lot to be desired. It needs a good cleaning and some sprucing up. That said, I ordered a skillet meal. Potatoes with onions, peppers and mushrooms topped with crumbled sausage, eggs and cheese. It was very tasty. It was served...More

Restaurant could use a through cleaning in the dining area. Looked dark and dingy. Wish the food was redeeming but it was little better than ordinary. Cold grits, cheese on the omelette instead of in it, toast just ok. All would be better if hot.

Went on a Sat AM for breakfast. Place is very busy. Food is very good and Service is good too. Prices are decent cost us over $25 with top. Food choices are great and good quality food. Definitely will go back to try the sandwiches.

Normally I wouldn't review places here in Memphis as I've become accustomed to poor quality food. Crunchy pieces of egg shell in the eggs, dry and barely warm hash browns, and the last half of my bagel tasted quite like fish. I can't explain this....More

We have eaten here several times. Most recently last week. The bagels are always fresh and they also make their own bread. I usually get an Eggel, bagel, cheese, egg and bacon but decided to try eggs and oat cakes. The oat cakes were really...More
