We had breakfast here on our first morning in NYC. Ham egg and fries was a substantial plate, as was the corned beef hash with grits. You won't need lunch if you breakfast here.

After a 8am Gospel, in the wintry day nothing best to stop by this place. Old stile and really southern. Waffle and fried chicken, delicious cornbread and creamy mac&cheese.

A great venue for some real soul food of the best “southern” tradition. Perfect for breakfast or brunch or lunch ... and I guess dinner. Hard to say what to get, all is simply delicious! Very reasonable prices and great service too!

If you have a large group, you want to call ahead to see if they can accommodate you. You might find yourself standing outside for a while.
