This place was recommended by a local from a good coffee shop and it was terrific! Lots on the menu and everyone was complimenting the waitress on her friendly service and the delicious food. Prices are really good and they have daily specials. I had the Cajun fried potatoes with Andouille sausage and eggs and it was one of the... More

This was a very busy place during Saturday breakfast, so I had high expectations. Our server was nice and accommodating, but did not come by very often. It took a while to get our food. The food was very good, although I don't think we will be back. While we were seated we noticed the sanitation grade-88.5.

Stopped in for a lunch after walking around Wilmington water front. Did not know anything about it other than the menu that was on the outside window. A much better choice than the majority of restaurants close by that were geared toward the bar crowd. I had a Dixie burger and the only reason that I don't give Dixie 5... More

Don't let the line outside of the restaurant scare you off. The wait is ususally shorter than anticipated and the food is well worth the wait. Very delicious and original breafast items and very quick and friendly service.

This was my furst visit to this restaurant. I had heard many good comments about their breakfasts. Even though we arrived before 9:00 a.m. we had about a 20 minute wait. Kids were being entertained outdoors by someone making characters and animals from balloons. Our breakfasts were yummy. The breakfast burrito was the best my husband has ever had, and... More

Excellent breakfast!! I enjoyed the green fried tomato BLT and my husband had the omelette of the day. Both were delicious and although there was a wait it was well worth it

We were staying in condo next door and went down for breakfast when they first opened. The food was delicious, service was good and efficient, portions were large and prices were reasonable. We we came out from eating our breakfast there was a long line that had formed outside so we must not be the only ones that have found... More
