The breakfast is the best. The coffee is great. And they have my favorite breakfast food grits. You will not leave there hungry. The staff is very friendly. They do get busy on weekends but the wait is not to long.

We came in a little before closing time, but service was quite good. We didn't feel rushed, but we didn't dawdle, either, knowing we made it just under the wire. Food was very good. OJ was exceptional, as it's fresh squeezed. Would definitely go again, when we are in the area. Great breakfast place!

Delicious and out-of-the-ordinary breakfast options, from hearty oatmeal to elegant omelets, plus fresh-squeezed orange juice, excellent coffee, and a variety of teas. Somewhat pricey, so we wait until a coupon is available.

We visited on Saturday morning, and the place was packed. The wait was not long. Food came quickly and was excellent. The only down side, was when the waitress was taking the kids order. She asked "bacon or sausage". She made it sound like it came with the pancakes. When the bill came, to our surprise, it the sausage links... More

I really wanted to like this restaurant. Especially since the waitress was freaking amazing. However, after about the 6 visit they are still inconsistent. This time the eggs were undercooked, grits were cold everything I ordered on my first attempt was no longer available even though it was on the specials menu. The hot chocolate was watery and did not... More

We went for breakfast. Varied menu, stuffed french toast, crepes, pancakes, omelets,berries you can get a regular breakfast, but they have a lot of over the top dishes. Lunch dishes. Ghirardelli hot chocolate. Usually more food than I can finish. Nice large space, has a private room. Parking lot appears to make this place look crowded and we have left... More
