“Quaint Hometown Eatery Vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The wait was minimal but well worth it. Some of the family style tables tops are custom painted, they have booths and stools around a U shaped bar. It's very homey feeling like local might gather for coffee and a peak at the newspaper. Good variety on the menu...not the typical run of the mill. A must try if you are in the neighborhood of Chevy Chase, not far from Richmond Road going into town.

“Great Chevy Chase eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Fresh, quality food presented in a relaxed atmosphere. The cheese grits are awesome for breakfast. Actually, this is my favorite Lexington breakfast restaurant. Friendly service, but can get very crowded.

“No Doubt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

My favorite place to eat breakfast by far. I love the atmosphere and the food is amazing. Waffles are loaded and huge! The food is well done and the staff is very nice. Would recommend to anyone coming to town.

Pleasant service, outside seating, good breakfast options from indulgent to the basics. Conducive environment for a casual business meeting. Will go back.

“Food Ok. Service poor to non existent.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

First time tried the breakfast at this restaurant. Service was very slow even with 15 people in restaurant and 4 waitresses. About 15 mins before given a menu. Food was ok. Biscuits very small and flabby. Potatoes deep fried and overcooked. Impossible to very hard to get server's attention. What should have been a quick breakfast took an hour. I will certainly NOT be back here again! Overpriced items. $10 for an omelette. If you are in a hurry do not eat here.
