This place was highly recommended, but the wait time was 45 minutes! The very kind front desk staff asked us if we wanted to wait, btu we said we were really only looking to try their biscuits and gravy. They suggested we just order a takeout biscuit! It was ready in no time and they let us eat at the... More

French toast was a plate full w/ strawberries, blueberry compote, and lemon curd. This was the special of the day. Sweet potato hash unusual but, really good dish. Like the hot teas..served in a little pot. Nice place, same wait staff year after year. Also, be sure to get some jelly/jams from the farmer that sets up outside. They serve... More

No frills place to have a great breakfast. The pancakes were delicious and the bacon was OMG delicious. Best coffee ever. Great menu. Opens at 9am, get there 8:45 or earlier for the first seating. Otherwise there could be a long wait.

Staff was accomodating, nice and tried hard but the ROASTED RED PEPPER and tomato soup when it was served was CREAM BASED (ugh-I can't do dairy) and it had to go back. Darn, I was SO HUNGRY for fresh... More

A bit of a wait at this popular place. Great food although portions are very large. If you don't mind a wait this place is worth the visit. Parking garage very close.
