Southern Charm in a college town

Good breakfast in Charlottesville is tough to find. As a result, there is always a wait outside as there is a pad of paper inside the door that you quickly learn to place your own name on. The omelets, cheesy grits, and biscuits are delicious, but the service is poor. With such a small dining... read more

Sorry to have to write my first negative review, but I think people need to know. Waited 30 minutes for a table, but we expected that. Did not expect to wait 40 minutes after we were seated to finally get our food -- good, but not great, and not worth the wait in my opinion. It appeared that the kitchen... More

This is a great kind of hole in the wall place, with funky furniture, vinyal tablecloths and unfortunately no Blue Grass Music! The waitress told us that they play BG on occassion on Sundays! The wait here is rather long, but if you are wise, just step next door, at this wonderful coffee shop..bring something good to read and wait...... More

Big breakfast menu. No wait on a Friday midmorning. I had the Hungry Norman and thought it was one of the most interesting benedicts I have had. My wife had the Joan Marie's omelet which was wonderful as well. We would definitely return if in town again. Service was friendly and efficient. I do recommend this place.

We got to the restaurant before it opened on Sunday and that was a great decision. Small dining area and people line up to get in and the food and service are the reason why. Corned beef has is amazing and the service is second to none. Waitresses all work as a team refilling coffee and drinks, taking orders, and... More

The staff were sweet enough, and the food was worth the trip, but the whole ordeal of lining up before opening time and then getting elbowed by aggressive families trying to get in the door first was a little off-putting. Maybe best to just suck up the wait, put your name on the list, and go for a walk before... More

Yes, this place is crowded on the weekend, but the crowds aren't such a problem on weekdays. The delicious and creative dishes and wonderful coffee here reward those who brave whatever wait they face.

This place has been on our "to do" list for a long time, but we've put it off because we knew it is aways crowded, especially on weekends. But today we got lucky, even though it was a Sat. with the farmer's market going on. We got our name on the list as #2, and the wait wasn't more than... More

Need I say more? If breakfast is your favorite meal to eat out, as it is mine, please stop here. The menu is fresh and interesting, the coffee is great, the service is professional. Bring a friend or family member and relax, enjoy food that is prepared with obvious pride and care. There is not a hostess, so if it's... More

We had a great breakfast in this small restaurant about 2 blocks off of the pedestrian mall. Portions are very large. I thought I might be able to finish it all but I was wrong. Very tasty. They have a lot of specialty dishes so I'd like to come back and try another. Note that they only take cash or... More
