I enjoyed brunch with friends at Melissa's a few weeks ago. Their breakfast/brunch menu has a wide selection and prices are reasonable. Outside and indoor eating. If you go during prime brunch hours, prepare to wait a bit.

This is an informal restaurant with good variety at breakfast. Service was friendly and prompt and the prices reasonable. The grits were great. A fair number of babies which was nice

Wow - this is one of those places that when you enjoy the first bite, you know the food is going to be memorable. Popular for breakfast, especially on the weekends, but worth the wait!
