“Long waits for so-so food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The long lines led us to expect better: The biscuits were great, but we had to ask for butter which was not served with them. The scrambled eggs special was bland (!) and the fried-green tomatoes were undercooked, overwrought (too many toppings) and just awful. One of us had a cup of tomato-basil soup which was not bad.

“Best Breakfast in the ATL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I eat here about once a week and I get a dozen wheat biscuits to take home and freeze most weeks.

They are awesome, even re-heated.

“AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Everytime I have gone here, the service was great and very friendly, food is AWESOME. This restaurant is for people who lean more towards organic, but anyone would enjoy the food. The biscuits are HUGE, and I love the apple/cranberry spread. Would recommend to anyone!
