Food was really good. Nice place to meet with friends on a Saturday morning. I had a friend visiting from out of town. Gave her a chance to have a southern breakfast in a charming environment.

Good food, location, and friendly service. Service is "relaxed", not speedy. Try the sweet potato pancakes, or any daily special. Great place to meet friendly locals.

My husband had delicious pineapple infused breakfast quinoa. I had the Simple Breakfast, I specifically asked for my potatoes and bacon well-done. Everything was cooked to perfection. The food was made well, cooked to perfection and served with a smile.

What a nice surprise!!! We went for brunch and the whole menu looked amazing. I ordered the Blue Crab Benedict and I'm still talking about it.. Looking forward to making the drive from Baton Rouge just for this stop. Only issue was the server wasn't that focused on her tables too much. We had to ask for more water and... More

Stopped on the way to B.R., and had a wonderful lunch/brunch. Ample outdoor seating that accomodated our little pooch. Service was spot on, and the server was knowledable about the menu items. Offered a few somewhat ecletic menu items which is always appreciated. I'd certainly go back.

The breakfasts menu looks awesome, but we were here for lunch. I had a Country Club sandwich on Sourdough with house salad. The club is a LOT of sandwich. It is made with Country ham, turkey, etc and the house vinaigrette is good. Husband had "Trawled" Shrimp sandwich with tater tots. He said it was great and it was all... More

Nice breakfast for the family! Nice healthy choices. Could get a 5 but service is a tad slow.. Nothing tragic but could speed it up a little.
