Our regular breakfast diner didn’t have room so we decided to try this one. Bad choice. With covid going on place could be cleaner and food wasn’t anything to write home about. Eggs were cold & hash browns were plain fried potatoes cut up on...your plate. Definitely not returning.More

Do not let the outside first impression of the inside turn you away from this excellent café. I ate breakfast there twice in the last week and was very satisfied times. My daughter and I tend to order different things so we can share. The...first day I went for full plate sausage biscuit. The white sausage gravy was excellent, maybe could have used a little bit more space. The biscuits were out of this world, soft, moist and so buttery they melted in your mouth. My daughter got the kabusi with scrambled eggs. The kabusi is cut in such a way and deep-fried that looks like a beautiful flower comes out. It tastes as fabulous as it looks. Truthful disappointed scrambled eggs but that is not the worst thing in the world. The second day I got the chicken fried steak with sausage gravy and over easy eggs as well as another biscuit. The chicken fried steak was perfectly done in the gravy this time was better than on just sausage biscuits. The biscuit along was perfect and scooped up the runny egg yolks perfectly just the way I like it. You also have an option of getting it pancake instead of an biscuit as a side. The pancakes are extremely light and fluffy just like your grandma used to make. Both times service was very attentive and our meals got out in a timely fashion. Prepared to wait if you go to breakfast on Saturday or Sunday morning, this place is absolute impact. I will be going back there again next time I visit my daughter at Camp Lejeune.More

This is a little dive diner with great food. They have variety on the menu and also a daily special board. I had a wonderful avocado, bacon, and cheese omelette and hashbrown. My daughter eats vegan. Although they don't have avocado toast on the menu,...they were happy to provide her with wheat toast and sliced avocado. Their home fries are deep fried in soy oil. The service was fast and friendly. The only annoyance was a kitchen staff member who was loudly on the phone the entire time we were there. He even came out and sat at the table behind us for a moment. He seemingly had no awareness of his rude behavior.More
