“Enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We met friends here for lunch on a Sunday (late morning) after finding out the other place we planned to eat was closed on Sundays, and it was a good choice. There were five in our party, and a couple ordered sandwiches, and the others chose from the breakfast menu. Everyone was pleased with their choices. I had the French Toast Napoleon, and I would definitely order it again. Their servings are generous as well. Others who have reviewed this establishment have commented on poor service; our service was outstanding. The server was pleasant, and he often refilled our water and coffee. We will definitely go back when in Macon.

“Not overly impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Stop in for lunch before going to a meeting at the University. We were seated quickly, it was about 11:40am. Our server was very nice and efficient. I ordered their grilled chicken sandwich and my son ordered a breakfast biscuit. My sandwich was ok, needed a little more honey mustard dressing on it, as it was a little dry, their home made potato chips, were not very crisp, and not a lot of flavor. My sons biscuit was very small, and it did not come with a side. Over all we had a pleasant lunch. I would go back and give it another try, as their menu was quite large. Atmosphere was pleasing.

“Mixed feelings!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

When we first walked in it looked like a great choice, bright and cheery. But then the waiter clearly didn't care that we were there, and couldn't even tell us what kind of beer they had. The food was really good, except the soup was very salty but they quickly removed it from the bill. Never offered drink refills, or dessert, even though I expressed an interest in the dessert menu from the beginning. Ordered banana pudding, out, ordered bread pudding, and they were out of that too. Bathrooms were in a different building, and Awful, no toilet paper, because it was all over the floor, dirty toilets and no soap!

“Good food but the servers were meh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Went for Sunday brunch. Server was very slow to come take our order. Food arrived and was pretty good. Our drinks were empty for some time before the server graced us with her presence and refilled them.
(Side note: she also had disgustingly long fingernails that are in no way sanitary.)
We'll probably go back since the foo was good, but if this woman is out server I'll ask for someone else.

“Yummy desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

desserts are awesome... you will need several forks or spoons to share. The desserts are huge and I have never seen anyone eat one by themselves. Their cakes are beautiful!
