Service was super friendly and fast. Food was standard southern breakfast. I asked for crispy bacon and it was crispy which is hard to get. Chicken and waffles were good. Overall a good start to rhe day.

Nice small place with good food. First ever seafood omelet was good. The shrimp and cheesy grits was great. The cajun style gravy helped make the dish. Went there for breakfast and lunch one day, then breakfast the next. Can't wait to go again.
