Good traditional well prepared southern dishes. Hours are 8:00 am to 3:00 pm and breakfast is OK until close. It was very relaxed and pleasant. My wife and I had a late breakfast - she had eggs, corn bread and braised southern greens and I...More

Food: the special omelet was great with asparagus, mushroom, and goat cheese. The red pepper sauce was outstanding and unique. The ham in the ham/cheese omelet was good, not the pressed stuff. Strong coffee - yay! - without being too bitter. The bakhti chai was...More

We came for breakfast, early on a weekend...there was not wait (though I'm sure that changes later in the day). The Shrimp and Grits was delicious, and too large for one person to eat. The Buttermilk Pancake with eggs and bacon was also delightful. Highly...More

Really enjoyed the relaxed vibe - on a busy Saturday morning no less. Lots if interesting items to chose from...well presented and quite tasty. I think I have found a new "go to" brunch spot - despite the crowds!

Yes, you will probably have to wait on a busy Sunday morning, but take heart. This place is definitely worth it. I absolutely loved the cheddar cheese grits with a side of sausage. Took me back to the South. My husband's eggs with the trimmings...More
