Although this gem was hard to locate since it is in a small shopping center, the food and service were wonderful. The food is "down home kind of cooking" and the coffee cups were kept full by the servers. The omelet and biscuits were tasty and the pancakes overflowed the plate. Glad we went out of our way to find such a gem!

Forget fancy. This locals favorite is casual with friendly waitresses who make you feel like a regular. I ordered perfectly prepared eggs and sinfully good bacon. My order came with oatmeal - it is the best I've ever eaten. Like eating a bowl of warm oatmeal cookie dough! French toast was incredible and the biscuits are - words fail me. Trust me, eat the biscuit and exercise more tomorrow.

Auten's is the best breakfast place in Aiken if you want good service and a good selection. Their grits are creamy and something special. They keep your coffee cup full and even give you a cup for the road! The biscuits are also great! Try it, you will like it!

Auten's is a good place to eat breakfast in Aiken, SC. Their grits are super and seemed to be prepared as low county grits (with some cream and cooked for a while, not instant grits). Menu selection is standard for a home cooked breakfast. Their lunch menu is typically four meat selections and a variety of vegetables. Lunch servings are small and seem to be right off the Cisco truck. There are better places in Aiken to get real home cooked food for lunch. We go to Auten's for their breakfast which has always been good. Service is always great with friendly people.

The biscuits were excellent but the food seemed to be frozen foods bought at Krogers and served up here. There are too many good restaurants in Aiken to waste time here.
