Brunch is delicious! Great place to check out. Sweet Baby Breesus and Cajun benedict are my favorites. Get there early or you'll be waiting awhile.

This small restaurant has become a Sunday family meeting place. You will not be disappointed by any of their food options and don't be surprised by old friends you can bump into
