Had brunch here and sampled quite a few things. The shrimp and grits, the chicken and biscuit, and the carribean beans n rice were the standouts. For something sweet, the waffles are delicious! Great service and quaint ambiance! Will be back!

Very popular so worth reserving a table in advance. Amazing bloody mary bar. Friendly service, good chat and above all inventive and tasty brunch dishes. The poached egg and crayfish was something special.
