We have been there before, but later in the day. This time we went to breakfast and it was great! Tasty eggs, bacon, phenomenal biscuits and the oh, so creamy grits. Service was relaxed but attentive. We were not disappointed.

I was very excited to visit this place, as I'd heard such high praise for it. It's definitely attractively funky enough, with an imaginative menu. However, it doesn't quite deliver. The biscuit creation that I ordered -- an Oven Fried Green Tomato BLT -- was...More

We visited during the week for brunch so wasn't very busy. The waiter was very nice. We had biscuits and gravy with grits. So good! The restaurant has an eclectic vibe. Will visit again.
