Just don't do it. The desserts are tempting but I really question the conditions are which they are made

Place was hopping, always a good sign. Went on Market day so lots of people. Interesting place to 'look' at while eating and visiting. Every table taken so quite loud inside, variety of food choices. Able to order something gluten free

We went here for the first time and had breakfast. The corned beef and hash was huge and amazing. There were six of us and every plate looked amazing....portions were huge but worth taking leftovers home to reheat later. Not to mention extremely good bloody Mary's.

Great brunch! Even had a choice for Elvis fans, we'll be back. We love sitting on the porch watching the activity in Bluffton. A great spot for a great little town.

Friendly staff. Good menu selection. Breakfast hours / lunch hours / dinner hours. Cozy seating inside and out. Also offers fresh pastries and coffee by the pound. House-brewed coffee is amazing!!! Great location downtown. Give it a try. It won't disappoint!

The first time I went here, I had the fried Green tomatoes...I crave them!! I am a fresh, cooked to order foodie and this place is definitely a hit for me! It's small, but I love that!
