Great atmosphere, excellent service from Rachel. Really delicious and southern style food. Extensive mimosa menu is a bonus. Busy on Sat/Sun but you can call ahead when you are on your way and get your name on the wait list. Loved this service!

Had breakfast there for the first time at this quaint little restaurant. Great service, the really good coffee, and an unbelievable menu. I had Buffalo hash, with homemade cornbread and what they call chicken fried eggs. Just exquisite. Looks like a fabulous lunch menu also....More

Wow. What a great place. For a first time visit I wish it was on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The Milkshakes were awesome! Service was really good. My wife ordered chili that was a little oilly. That brought her another dish without hesitation. We...More
