My husband and I read the rave reviews of this place so we were super excited to get in so quick when we arrived. Place was busy, waitress was pleasant, menu was a good size. We ordered lattes to start while we decided what to eat. They came scalding hot, and when they cooled down we found them okay but... More

I had some time last Thursday morning and decided to try this restaurant for breakfast. I found them rated highly on TripAdvisor and gave them a try. Evidently there is a long wait on Saturday and Sunday. I only waited about 10 minutes on a Thursday. I got there about 9:00 am. I was greeted and took a seat in... More

I tried my first open face omelet and it was awesome! I will definitely hit this spot often. It is a neat hidden gem that once you find it, you will eat there often. People are lined up for this place for reason!

We still waited for almost an hour to be seated but waiting room inside and out is plentiful so we weren't uncomfortable. We managed to snag 3 seats at the coffee bar. Only "complaint" might be that there is one person working that counter and, while she was as pleasant as can be, she was the only person in the... More

There was a 45 min wait to be seated there is an app called no wait that you can reserve a spot with. We were just visiting the area so we were unaware of that. You can then see where you are in line. Once seated there was a 40min wait to get our food we went at 10 am... More

The restaurant came highly recommended for breakfast so my husband and I decided to go on a Sat mid morning. We were warned about the long waits and assumed that was because the food was so good. The atmosphere was nice - it is very close to the University of Memphis. Service staff was welcoming and kind. My mocha latte... More

Waited less than 10 minutes for a table, which is reasonable for a good restaurant. My first impression after being seated, was damn, this place is loud! However, the noise quickly blends into the background as you study the menu. They have added their own twist to standard breakfast food. You can still get the basics, but after reading the... More

Fabulous "homemade" breakfast!!! Snuggled in the heart of the University of Memphis area. You may have to wait because the space is small; but it's worth it! Yum! 😋

This restaurant was recommended to us...so glad we decided to try it. Very laid back, the kind of place Guy Fieri would add to his Triple D list! I wanted a BLT not on the menu, but they agreed to make one if I was ok with spinach instead of lettuce with excellent "homemade" bread too! The home fries are... More

We were visiting family last month and decided to go for brunch. We had heard the helpings were quite large. We had come in and put our name on the list earlier in the morning but arrived a few minutes late for our seating. Unfortunately the lines are quite long here so they gave our table away. But the hostess... More

Food, family and community best describe this hidden jewel in Memphis tucked away in the heart of the University area, and known as the best breakfast in Memphis. We have home-cooked meals with fresh ingredients, excellent service in a friendly casual atmosphere, and beautiful garden seating. Bread, biscuits and pastries are baked fresh from scratch every day.
