Great place to go with a group. Lots of different options to choose from. I loved the corn cakes that I had. They were so good! Everyone was happy with their order and our waitress was so wonderful.

Just don't go around lunch or weekends, and this is a nice place to eat. Otherwise its WAY too crowded and a HUGE line out the door. Eating outside in the fall and winter is nice in their little outside area. Love the Brie, try...More

We've had lunch here a few times. They are generally crowded around lunch time. We really like their po-boys and other sandwiches. Service is generally pretty good. They have a nice porch to eat on in nice weather also. There is some parking nearby

Be warned - the noise level here prevents serious conversation but the friendly service and menu options make this place a must-visit.

We read several reviews and received several recommendations to come here. Maybe that was our issue. The service was friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere was lovely. The food left something to be desired though. We had pancakes and the Fisherman's special breakfast. Neither were...More

Absolutely amazing! Not many places in the world where you can have Oysters Benedict. Eggs Benedict with Fried Oysters for breakfast? YES PLEASE! The eggs were poached perfectly and the oysters were fried to perfection. The Hollandaise Sauce was unbroken and wonderful. My wife also...More

Their specialty is breakfast and lunch. Bakery is well respected also. Only downside is the noise level inside when the restarunt is packed like on Sunday Brunch but they have a delightful patio too.

Probably before 9:00AM. I was there on a Monday in October so it wasn't that crowded.

I think that Sunflower will customize a cake, if by that you mean decorating one for a special occasion. Pattycakes, a couple of blocks away and also on 14th Street, does customized cakes. Both bakeries are good.
