Tried it out for a first time, put name on waitlist, got there and there was two lines and no instructions for which. Talked to person and they put our name on list, so obviously wait list was a ploy to make you think you...to actually get there. Asked for inside dining and they gave us an outside number, at 45 minutes we finally got seated, we only got seated because one of the employees realized how screwed up it was, numerous tables open inside continuously for over 30 minutes. Food was good, bbq omelet was really good.More

Really great stawberry shortcake pancakes. All in all not a bad meal for the price. Disappointed in how our three meals came out separately, one about twenty minutes later than the others. Don't waste your time on the beignets. They aren't that good.

I visited the Germantown location and it was my first time dining there. Picking up your menu at the door and ordering at the counter is a bit odd, and they ask you for a tip at front, although they say you can leave it...after your meal. Since it’s really a hybrid counter, sit down service, I found that odd. They bring your food to the table after ordering at the counter. I have to say the omelette I had was absolutely delicious and exceeded my expectation. The staff was friendly, and the restaurant appeared very clean. The ingredients seemed very fresh and appealing and the food presentation was great. This is now my go to breakfast place when I’m in Memphis.More

My friends and I started a birthday celebration there on Monday for brunch. It was the best start to a day! The Oreo praline pancakes are decadent. Others enjoyed the lemon ricotta, and breakfast quesadilla. They loved everything. Staks mimosas are delicious and generous. Service...was excellent even though our food took a little while to get to our table and did not come out perfectly together as we had hoped, but the manager had great communication and handled everything promptly to make our visit was special. We will definitely recommend and return soon!More

We went there for lunch today on our way out of Memphis. We were there for a college event for my daughter and I had been asking my wife and her if it would be ok for us to go there for our meal as...we left town. My daughter and I are Breakfast lovers. I has the smoked salmon omelette with the small stack on the side. It was probably really good. My daughter had a make your own grilled cheese - it was supposed to have white cheddar and Bacon - it had regular cheddar - but she enjoyed it when she felt she could eat it. My wife ordered the club sandwich. She got panini pressed bread with cheese and turkey. It was supposed to have ham, bacon, lettuce, tomato, honey mustard and Mayo. My daughter and I had started eating - when my wife let me know what was wrong. A waitress came by and checked and we showed her what was wrong. She raised her eyebrows and I thought she went to fix it. We waited and as our food got cold nothing happened. I signaled another server- showed her - she went and got the manager on duty - it took a while to get her. She was blonde with facial piercings - she apologized for the new staff in the back and got them to bring an new sandwich out. By the time she got it, my daughter and I had finished our cold meal. With empty plates stacked on the table my wife was handed her “fixed” sandwich. As she began to eat it she noticed there was no mustard or Mayo on it. She ate 1/2 of the dry sandwich. I went to the manager and asked for a go box and Mayo and honey mustard. She brought the box and once again apologized for the back staff not knowing what they were doing. Because of the way you order, you pay in advance of receiving your meal. We were not offered any sort of recompense, any acceptance that it was unacceptable to get our food that way. Free dessert? A card for them to try to do better? Nothing. Our daughter will be going to college there for the next 4 years. I doubt she will want to go back or recommend it to her friends. Based on the online reviews I was looking forward to a great meal. Not only did my wife have a horrible experience, no one at the table was able to truly enjoy our meal. While it tasted ok- having someone served food that was not what they ordered and have to wait that long for help - and then not being offered anything other than blaming staff that was “the best they could get” did not sit well with us.More

Visiting Memphis for the first time, the wait was 30 minutes to be seated. No biggie. We got in ordered our food chicken and waffles and a short stack with bacon and after 45 minutes I asked a manager what was taking so long. He...apologized and he checked on our order and said it was coming up. They brought the bacon out and said the rest of the order would be right out. They brought chicken and waffles and said the short stack would be right back out after 15 minutes still no food. Manager gave us a refund and we left NEVER GOT MY FOOD AND ILL NEVER BE BACK. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE SERVICEMore

I read the reviews and almost changed my mind but decided to anyhow. I’m glad I did. I ordered the cinnamon roll pancakes, birthday cake pancakes, french toast with bacon, and Egg BLT with hash browns. Each and every item was hot, moist, and delicious...and note I am a extremely picky eater. The store opened at 6:30 I placed my order at 6:30 waited curbside and received my order by 6:50. I have no complaints and will visit again of course with COVID-19 I will be ordering curbside for a minimum of another year. Please try and maybe get there before the rush of you can. Note: This was an order to feed 3 but we have enough left over to feed 3 more people so $44 is a very good price for all I ordered.More

It was the worst brunch experience every. There was favoritism with check in. A group of people looked like a soccer kid and parents came after us and received a spot by calling on someone named Bryce. He made a spot available for them. After...waiting a hour for seating a group that came after our group were called next after us after they only waited 20 mins. I know because I was right there when the hostess told them it would be 45 mins to hour wait. Yes awful! Then when we get in the inside the cashier touches my id to look front and back for mimosas. Why are you touching my id during Covid?? I can show you front annnnnnndddddd back. Now then after all that....we wait on the food. No comment. Just go somewhere else.More
