Try anything on the menu, you will not be disappointed. Omelettes, Salt Herring, or other great selections for breakfast. Lunch Menu is diverse and they have a good Chili dog. Service is always quick and efficient. Will eat here again and again.

Bunch here on Friday with the wife. Breakfast was solid; Dixie omelette was great. Eggs, collards, cheese over grits was outstanding. Corn cake was fun, not sweet. Stewed apples were great, no or little added sugar! Busy place. Overall a winner.
