My husband and I stopped in on Sunday around 10:15AM. Our wait time was only 20 mins and the place was packed! We were seated and immediately helped by a wonderful server. We ended up ordering 2 omelettes, hash-browns and one special pancake with strawberries...More

Lots of choices and delicious for breakfast or lunch. The Eggs Benny on grits is my favorite by far. Good desserts too.

This is the BEST breakfast in Asheville hands down. Small and cozy, and great southern food with an Asheville hint thrown in. If you don't make this place for breakfast or brunch you havent had a succesfull Asheville visit.

I've been here a few times for breakfast-always a fine meal-but last night was the first time for dinner. The host made us feel welcome and our server was helpful and friendly. We shared the pimento cheese sandwich and meatloaf plate and also had cups...More

You would think some place that specialized in breakfast food would know how to cook an egg. "Skillet" was too hot, edges of egg were crispy. Ordered over easy and yolk was cooked. Did not help to send it back since heat was too high.

I believe so. For instance they use croutons made out of grits for their salads. I had a friend with Celiacs visit me here, and we found that it's pretty easy to find gluten free options in most restaraunts. There is a... More
