The homemade biscuits are great. Especially liked the breakfast sandwiches made with the biscuits. Also, their coffees are good. Bagels were just okay.

To me, it is all about food quality, value (bang for buck), and then "vibe" and also of course, service. Clearly somewhat of a local spot (there are three). If you're staying in a DT Hotel, the one on 60,Biltmore Ave will be closest, perhaps 15 minute walk. Their breakfast sandwiches are made on big scallion cheddar biscuits and a... More

It's a good place to go for breakfast. I got their club sandwhich and it was a huge serving. Nothing is really extaordinary with the food. Staffs are just ok, I can't say they are friendly. Restaurant is clean.

The food is fresh, pastries and bread baked daily. Lots of variety. Great breakfast sandwiches, especially the veggie sandwich. Prepare to wait. Always very busy and always a line, but worth the wait.

This is a great breakfast stop that offers many homemade offerings that are not your traditional fare. They have sidewalk seating if desired. Prices are very moderate.

Stumbled upon this place when my husband wanted coffee and we were headed to Starbucks down the street. What a treat to run into this place instead!! We had the veggie biscuit (on homemade cheddar and scallion biscuit, freshly baked and still warm), coffee, fresh squeezed OJ and then later could not resist splitting a chocolate croissant. This is a... More

The egg and cheese scallion biscuit was delicious! I also had half an order of stuffed French toast and coffee which were also very good.

Just popped in to get some goodies to go. Let me tell you how excellent the chocolate croissants are!! They are not small either. Snagged a few cookies too, everything tasted wonderful. Wish we had had time for breakfast it all looked so good. The place stays busy but we were in & out in no time.
