We went for breakfast and the menu isn't exactly standard. For example, the breakfast potatoes are not your usual breakfast potatoes. I like them okay, but mother did not. They have interesting combinations. The staff was adequate. The decor is darling - very bright and...More

The wait staff here was great! We were seated right away and our food came out fast. Great place for early risers since it opens early! We will definitely be back again.

Food is prepared with a local twist. Which is good. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Its something different for a change. You'll enjoy it.

This place really is fantastic. The quality of the food is matched by the tastyness of the dishes. The bacon gravy is rich and smokey and the shrimp and grits are fabulous. The place is cute clean and bright!
