Great start to the day

Had breakfast here, along with a lot of other people! Looks like the place to be for breakfast, and we found out it was. Bloody Mary's were very tasty and the fried green tomato BLT with homemade pimento cheese was neatly put together and very good. My husband had a plateful of eggs, sage sausage... read more

There was nothing special about this menu- things I can and do fix at home. I even saw them using the microwave. They tried to step it up, but I was feeling like I should have just saved my money. The pimento cheese dip was not even real! They also have no AC so in summer, it is hot.

My husband and I eat here regularly - two or three times a week, sometimes more. Breakfast is great! Good food, good price, and friendly service. Hamburgers, Ruben sandwich, fried okra...all great. Their baker is outstanding! All the desserts are great, especially the carrot cake!!!! All homemade!!!! Most of the waitstaff know us and automatically bring us our drinks right... More

Great breakfast and brunch menu. The atmosphere was good but the wait staff were unfriendly. As we sat at the counter we got splashed by a waitress who failed to even acknowledge or apologize us as she cleaned up her own mess.

We were recommended to try this restaurant for a late lunch. Clearly it was between peak times because there was a lack of waitstaff. Food was good, but not outstanding. We had the specialty of the house fish and chips, and they were just average. An interesting ambience in the place though. It felt like a diner counter where all... More

We eat here every time we are in Lynchburg - which is quite regularly. We have always had great food. We love the atmosphere - in the middle of downtown. It is in an old building (but very clean and very nicely decorated). Very family friendly. We had a slight problem with one of our orders this past Saturday. The... More

I really like the old-school drug store lunch counter vibe of this place. I have only had breakfast & lunch here. Both were excellent. Good food. Good service. Nice atmosphere. What's not to like?
