We decided to try this out for Brunch. We made the right decision by heading there early. We arrived around 10:30am or so, and got one of the last tables available. By the time we had our food, the waiting area was swarmed. This is a popular brunch spot. The food was really good. I ordered an omelette with egg... More

Just get a Publix sub and some chips and go back to your crappy job. Because eating out at a place like this is a nice little experience. I'm the guy that pretends to not know what I want so I can devour that free pimento cheese dip that is offered in a large dish before you order (sorry, dude... More

Went to Di Prato's for brunch after church. The food was great! Make sure you order/try the world famous pimento cheese and pita chips! The only downside is that you are going to pay a pretty penny for the food. Will certainly be back!

You just can't go wrong here. The specials are terrific, the regular items are addictive, the portions are large, the service is good, the take-out is good, the service is excellent. And they serve the only good Rueben I have found in the area. Closest thing to a good NYC deli around. One of my top 5 in the Midlands.

This the place to go for a pimento cheese sandwich. Always great flavor and service is outstanding. You should get there early as there is always a crowd. Simple good food at a reasonable price.

If you want that "I've died and gone to pimento cheese heaven" feeling, this is the place to experience it. Order a big scoop of it with a basket of pita chips and indulge. The other menu items and daily specials are culinary delights too.

Diane knows what she's doing when she opened this place! It has the best sandwiches, soup, and pimento cheese and pita chips ever!!!! Everything is fresh and always good! The white pimento cheese is my fave! My hubby and I try to come here at least once a month! The brunch on Sundays is always delish as well!

Our daughter had one of the chicken sanwiches which she enjoyed too. The desserts are to die for! We split coconut cream pie- yum, and cheesecake.The decor and... More

Had Sunday brunch and it was great. Had the pecan banana pancakes and they were fantastic. They had bananas and pecans throughout, not just on top. The bacon was top notch and good coffee too. It was a nice atmosphere and the service was good. The eggs benedict looked really good and I will probably get that next time. The... More
