Great breakfast Spot.

We ate here this morning based on other reviews. Excellent choice. GREAT PANCAKES! Also wonderful french toast. The wait staff are very attentive and the food arrived quickly. Will probably eat there again tomorrow.

Enjoyed the Heavenly Hash. Big portion at a decent price. Wait staff was fast and efficient. Looked like a place the locals frequent. They stayed busy the whole time we were there.

We ate breakfast here everyday. Portions are very generous, so don't forget to ask before ordering. Pancakes are the size of dinner plates; I could barely finish just one. The French toast is thick and sooooo good! Ms. Carolyn,s coffee is really good and the servers will keep your cup filled. Great service. The one improvement could be in the... More

We went on April 1, 2015 and the place was mobbed. But we waited and it was well worth it. We each got omelettes, and they were over stuffed with ingredients and were not over cooked and the the eggs had a perfect texture. We also had fruit and a coffee roll prior to our omelettes and they were also... More

Really really really GREAT food with incredibly friendly service! We had to wait for about 15 minutes but besides that, there are no complaints. The food was seriously so good! Our waitress was as friendly as they come and we left feeling full and happy. It's a little crowded and noisy but beyond worth it. SO GOOD!

Very local place and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Busy and noisy. Pretty standard menu. Food was very good and portions are very large. Grits are very good too. Didn't have biscuits but they looked great.

Ms. Carolyn was pointed out to us by one of the wait staff as the fine lady who makes all of the desserts. The chocolate cake was to die for, moist and covered in delectable old school chocolate frosting. Also tried the key lime pie with fresh graham cracker crust and a homemade filling that was not too tart. Ms.... More
