Have loved this place since the day it opened 15 yrs ago. Friendly service. Best biscuits in town so get The Witch w/ham n eggs or Gravy Love biscuits w/ sausage gravy. Local fresh ingredients, great meats. The cornbread and the banana bread French toast also to die for

Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast on the patio. Tree canopy made for a nice setting. Excellent service and great food! I appreciated that they accommodated my substitution requests.

My wife and I went here based off of some recommendations from our friends here in town. I found the wait time to seating on a Saturday morning around 1000 to be very quick. Upon being seated it was nice and warm, staff were very friendly and we had drinks on our table almost immediately. As this was our first... More

Great lunch. Everything was well seasoned and tasted home made. Had a Reuben and clam chowder, both were excellent. Staff was super nice and you could tell the locals frequent this establishment. Will be back for sure.

Eclectic atmosphere...kinda like your weird but fun aunt's house. The menu has variety & I wanted to try everything!! Best toast ever to create my sammy of bacon, egg, spinach & yummy melty brie. My daughter loved her biscuits & gravy too. My son's egg with not cooked to his liking but that will happen. Server was efficient & pleasant.

My fiancee and I went there for breakfast as we have many times in the past. There was a 1/2 hour wait, but that is not unusual. After being seated, we ordered and we're enjoying some conversation as we finished breakfast and waited for a 2nd cup of coffee. One waitress came up and said that they were going to... More

Breakfast was good it was different in their preparation they had with the potatoes. They had vegetables cheese and ham. The potatoes could use a little more cooking still a little hard. Biscuits and gravy were good. Do come early it is very crowded and there is no parking you have to park around the corner. The restaurant had a... More

The biscuits and gravy are super good. The portions are big, so if you want to share a plate, it's a good idea. Eggs were cooked properly and the coffee was plentiful.
