We tried the restaurant's specialty which was a maple glazed house made donut with bacon bits. WOW! We both had the fried softshell crab and grits special, which was over the top! Well worth any wait!

We tried this place a couple of weeks ago for breakfast and it was awesome! They strike a nice balance of good ole homey food but it still feels somewhat healthy. The staff were very pleasant and the mango-pineapple spread for bread is amazing.

Awesome spot for brunch or breakfast! The mango jelly is delicious. The grits are more on the sweet side. The pancakes are lip smacking good. And of course, you have to get the French doughnuts! You will enjoy this place.
