I have driven by the place several times over the years an always found the parking lot to be full. So today we stopped in and were treated to a very nice home like 60ish kind of place the food was great and our waitress, Taylor was wonderful. The prices were good two people for $ 20.94, and everything was... More

We saw a lot of good reviews, and so we gave it a try and were pretty disappointed. The crab cakes were bland and full of shells, and the French dip was very greasy. i suppose I could go back to try their breakfast, but their lunch left much to be desired.

We had breakfast there twice while we were staying at NAS Pensacola. I had CJ's New Orleans Napoleon, and their eggs benedict with smoked salmon. Two Great meals served with pride.( I enjoy eating at the small local cafe's) Service was prompt and friendly. We can't wait to eat there next year.

The wife and I go here a couple times a month. The menu is a good mix of breakfast and lunch and while the wife tries out various items I always get the Philly French dip. The au jus is perfect and the meat peppers and onions just fall apart in your mouth. Definitely my favorite dive in Pensacola

I would say Go, the food was great, my family had the Salmon eggs Benedict, pork chop, chicken fingers, country fried steak and shrimp po-boy. We will be going back. There was a Bentley in the parking lot, figured they had to have been there before. Good service too.

A Cajun would feel at home here with Cajun music and New Orleans Jazz, not to mention the food. Great breakfast place with a big menu for a small sized cafe. Super friendly service and quick. My breakfast lasted all the way to supper and the price put a smile on my face. I will be back in Pensacola next... More

We went here using a Groupon for lunch. My husband ordered the chicken salad and I got the club sandwich and fries. The food was average, nothing special. Service was just okay. Definitely not an upscale place, but nothing wrong with that. Food was delivered in a timely manner, just nothing to draw me back.

This is our go to for a cheap, delicious breakfast. It is a small place so you might have to wait, but it is well worth it. Tina is the best waitress and we always hope we are seated in her section. The chicken salad is wonderful as are the cheese grits. Must try this place, skip Cracker Barrel!

This place has the good old fashioned diner atmosphere. It was pretty crowded when we went in there, but we were greeted as soon as we walked in. Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. You could tell there were a lot of regulars in the restaurant. I like the locally owned restaurants like this. I got the chicken salad... More

Good food and good service at this cozy local spot. I recommend the veggie omelet and the beignets! The place isn't fancy but the food is good and portions generous!
