The place was packed out at 9AM. BUT, well worth the wait. We made our way to the back room, placed our order and even with the mad RUSH, speedy service and a great waitress to boot. Love this place. Just not open on Sunday.

We went to this restaurant because my niece use to go there while she was a student at Ole Miss. We had breakfast. It was very good and the wait staff were very nice. I would recommend this for breakfast.
