Great lunch

We have eaten here many times for breakfast. Sorry to say it is no longer a secret! Gets crowded. We decided to try for a late lunch(closes at 2:30). Limited menu, but very good. Waitress was very nice. Had a sandwich and wife had salad. Both were outstanding. Will continue to go back on visits... read more

My husband and I tried it for the first time this morning. We will not go back! We had to wait in line. Standing for about 20 minutes and the place was only half full with plenty of open tables. Customers had to stand in line to pay. Several gave up and sat down, waiting to get someone to take... More

Service was quick. Coffee had good flavor - not that watery stuff so many serve. All the means were hot and delish.

Though I prefer the new one next to Drury's Hotel in Franklin, the food here is very good. I enjoy the flavors and feel satisfied without being overfed.

I wanted to really like this restaurant. Clean and inviting, with a very interesting menu. I was alone and felt invisible... Took a very long time to get a cup of coffee. My eggs Benedict were cold and overcooked...which tells me they sat on the pick up line a very long time. Families and couples all around me were being... More

I have had a few items on their menu but my favorite is the roast beef. Every time the office orders from there, I choose the roast beef. I have also used their pick up service as well and get prompt service.

We're happy to hear how much you enjoy our roast beef! Next time, try our 2-For-You to get half a Beefeater along with your favorite soup or salad. We look forward to seeing you soon! More

This has become one of my favorite breakfast/brunch/lunch places. The food is very fresh with great ingredients and variety. The staff has always been very friendly. The place is clean and bright. There does seem to be a bit of a wait for your food, but I imagine that's because they are making it fresh so I can deal with... More

I frequent the Franklin location several times a month and look for FW locations when I travel, but this was my first visit to Brentwood location. My go-to item is the Tri-Athlete egg white omelette with mushrooms and tomatoes. This time I subbed out the side choices for their avocado mash, which includes a bit of sea salt and lemon--my...
