Oh yeah!

Really good breakfast spot. They have some interesting selections, but everything we had was really good.

This is a breakfast/lunch only place in an old house on Castle St just east of 6th. It really is an old house and you are eating in the former living room, dining room or another place. I am guessing but I would save it seats about 50 people at a time. My family of four went on a Sunday... More

We were here for lunch and it is obviously popular with the locals. The food and waitstaff were great. Try the grilled pimento cheese sandwich with caramelized onions, tomato and bacon. Loved it!

This quaint little restaurant sits right in the middle of the art district on Castle Street. I always order a BLT with a fruit cup, very delicious!! Be warned, sometimes you have to wait just a bit because this place stays busy, busy, busy!!! Which is because it is a great value in a great location!!!!

Wonderful place for brunch or lunch. I always have the quiche. Yum! Friendly laid back staff. In older part of town undergoing revitalization. Antique shops, cd/record album and artsy gifts across street.

Jester's never fails to please. They pay careful attention to the food's presentation and taste. Simple but homemade. The atmosphere can be noisy. One would have to expect and accept that. It gets crowded Sunday morning.

First had food from here at a friend's house. We were playing bridge and she brought the lunch that she had picked up at Jester's. We had quiche, shrimp, salad, muffins and key lime pie. Everything was delicious. It was so good that two friends and I decided to go have breakfast there after church the following day. We were... More

This is a great place to go if you have time to sit and enjoy company with a friend. The location is small and off the beaten path and it often gets quite noisy inside. There is space on a deck to eat which is nice when the weather is warm. You must try the lemon dill feta dressing .... More

Such an awesome place! Small, almost hole in the wall place that makes you feel as if your walking into your grandmas house for breakfast! The people are extremely nice, and make you feel as if they enjoy your company while your there! The food is awesome! I've been quite a few times and can't get enough! The french toast... More
