Great food and atmosphere

We enjoyed a very tasty meal at this popular hangout. The food selection is excellent and creative, well prepared and fast service. It can get a little crowded due to the set up of tables and chairs, but that is part of the charm and atmosphere. We will go back!!

Mixed rating for this site. The food is better than average but lots of hairs for us to deal with. The quiche had a hair in it and the eggs did to. Ruins the experience but I will rate the food minus the hairs. It was better than average and a bit overpriced. The site itself is very, very, very... More

Like the service and like the staff. The food is not to bad either. Very few choices for a sit down breakfast in Brevard. This is the best we have had at this time.

Friendly staff and plenty of coffee choices, but the coffee itself was nothing great and averagely priced. It's OK but I wouldn't really return.

This is a great breakfast/lunch spot for meeting up with friends or grabbing some takeout. Cheap and delicious. A friendly and welcoming environment. The bagels are yummy and fresh. A huge menu to choose from. They have awesome "themed" specials. My favorite is the pizza bagel and the club sandwich. Can get very busy. Right across from the entrance of... More

Stopped here on our way out of town for a nice breakfast in a quirky little setting. Staff very friendly and helpful. Diverse menu (bagel and lox?) Not a lot of seating but very laid back, casual vibe. I'd definely stop again.

Food is good enough, crowds can be terrible. We had standard breakfast food like scrambled eggs, bacon, fried potatoes. All was good but not spectacular. I think they cater to a healthier clientele with spinach and stuff like that in the food. LOL-

The seating is crowded but I like the cozy feel. Great coffee and breakfast items. Get the breakfast nachos. You will not be disappointed.

Some one else said in their review and without a doubt that is the truth. People from all walks come in and enjoy the food and the friendship, in that way it is the Brevard, NC version of that famous Norcross, GA chain (any southern will know what I am talking about).
