This is one of the best breakfast places in the city. We had the bananas foster french toast, a variety of omelets, pancakes, and grits. The grits were some of the best we've ever had. The serving portions were big. There was a bit of a wait, but it was worth it. Service was excellent and the food worth the... More

On the weekends, expect a little wait for a table, but you will not be disappointed by the breakfast. I really enjoyed the breakfast sandwich with a side of bacon. The breakfast sandwich comes on this amazing buttermilk biscuit. I could have easily had an additional biscuit. All the food is prepared fresh. They also offer a "double mimosa" for... More

Great menu and plenty of food. They have the best Bloody Mary's. If they take reservations, make sure you get one or you can expect about a 45 to hour wait..but well worth the wait!

Not as polished as a hotel restaurant, but tastier. Not as authentic as some hole in the wall gems. But this place hits a nice sweet spot for atmosphere loaded with character, very good interpretation of what a local breakfast should be, with caring and attentive staff and decent prices. The OJ is so fresh, the biscuit is fluffy and... More

Ok. Normally I could care less about bread at any meal because it just takes up room in my gut for, well, everything else on my plate!! When I saw this hot, homemade biscuit on my plate something came over me and I had to try it! It was awesome!! I had ordered a Spanish omelet, which was good by... More
