Fantastic new venture run by J.D. Hairston, mad-scientist/cook and partner-in-crime Anika Balaconis. The menu offers Tex-Mex-like cookin' with a variety of tacos (including the delicate and hand-corned "lengua" tongue and beef tacos) with an incredible array of toppings from pickled onions and jalapenos to flavored sour creams, goat cheeses and more. From a saltcod po'boy to the best grits n' eggs this side of the Mississippi -- homemade nut brittles and "cherry pie cookies" -- this cafe is tailoring itself to the tastes of the community and creating a wonderfully welcoming place with an interesting and diverse menu for all to enjoy. The Vegie Melt is to die for!

Hardy Good Food!

We were hungry and cranky this rainy July 4th in need of comforting, not fussy, but creatively prepared food. The Brass Buckle sits on a corner lot, with full windows, so the happy customers were in plain view. With counter service and folkie decor, and people, this place reminds me of the... read more

Stopped by for a quick lunch. The wife had the huevos racheros and I had one grilled mushroom taco and one pork belly and pineapple taco. The food was great. Add to this free wi-fi and lots of coffee and tea choices and you have a winner.

This is the best food in town and the owners are great! They made me feel at home, a stranger, from out of town. Corned beef and hash and a cup of joe makes my day!

Decor is awesome, great for breakfast and lunch. Absolutely to die for breakfast sandwiches. The biscuits are some of the best I have ever had. Very good iced coffee, and everything is extremely fresh. Friendly staff as well.

Great place for breakfast and other small bites/sandwiches. I must admit I get the same thing every time I go in - the breakfast sandwich on a homemade biscuit. Its amazing. And if you are up @ 8am when they are open, sneak in for a homemade scone fresh out of the oven - delicious! I am amazed by the... More

It's a hippy place with wi-fi; but they serve quality food. I would expand the menu. They serve food on the hot side. Good deserts. Great English breakfast tea.
