Birmingham's best little secret. Delicious food and teas. The owners are so attentive and thoughtful. I recommend calling ahead and making a reservation.

“A Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

This place is, in my opinion, one of the very best restaurants in Birmingham. It is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11AM to 2PM. It's located in the community of Mt Laurel which is south on 280, then take 41 to Mt Laurel.
I like the buffet which is on Fridays. It is really what I would call gourmet. You have a choice of several entrees, sides and desserts-every one is unique, unusual and special.
On other days the menu is also good, but I prefer the buffet. No alcohol, but probably could bring in something (Call to see if that is okay-nice wine and beer selection at the country store-nearby in Mt Laurel).
The owners are soooo friendly, service is truly homey and outstanding. The chef is so willing to tell you all about her creations.
It's really worth the drive!!!!!!!!!
