Excellent choices for breakfast. Had the Farmer's scrambler... eggs, tomatoes, spinach, and goat cheese... did not disappoint! Be sure to try the cider! Yum!

My co-workers and I tried this place out for dinner and were not disappointed. The first thing you notice when you walk in is the dessert bar. I mean, talk about food porn. Even though the restaurant seemed pretty busy, we were seated quickly. Our server was attentive, friendly and did not seem to mind that it took us a... More

This is popular spot on Market Square, for good reason. Good service, good food, reasonably priced for a nicer restaurant, plus a nice bakery adjacent to the restaurant area. Can get very busy on weekend evenings. We ate early on Saturday (around 5:30) and had no problem getting a table, but by the time we left there was a good-sized... More

I had a vegetable plate on my most recent visit, followed by a cupcake and coffee. It was really excellent. The vegetables were well prepared and tasty. They have a great variety of cupcakes and other sweet treats, plus excellent coffee.

Food is always good. As you walk in, you pass by the dessert bar. Make sure you take notice since these are some of the best anywhere! If you are there in the spring or fall, sit outside on the patio and enjoy the passersby.

Atmosphere and decor are really nice. Food is like new age spin on classic southern cuisine. Service does not meet expectations. Server seemed miserable and took no pride in his work.

Very good, service not up to par on our visit. Will try again for different entree. No wait on a Tuesday night which was a plus. Macaroni dish over priced.

Went here for brunch last Sunday...brunch menu was not that special and food was not that great. Mimosa's are more orange juice than champagne, grits were AWFUL! You should not be able to dip southern style grits with an ice cream scoop and have them hold their shape. Service was slow at best. As SherryWanders stated, it is expensive. With... More
