“Great Breakfast Experience”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

First off, you can tell what used to be here (think large chain "diner" with "slams"), but they have done a terrific job remodeling...fun place...great colors!

Then, the people...super welcoming. A waitress and then the owner greeted us coming through the door and had us sit anywhere. We were given menus and the owner came over and chatted/joked with us for a couple minutes. We got our coffee and cream (yes REAL cream mini-moos) right off the bat, great start for a coffeeshop/diner.

I was torn in choosing my food from the menu only because i love eggs Benedict, and (what i decided on) biscuits and gravy (with eggs and hash browns). The scratch-made biscuits were huge and fantastic...the gravy was thick, creamy, sausage'y, yummy.

Waitresses were super attentive and friendly. The owner was funny and one of a kind, occasionally singing and entertaining patron's babies...made me want to work there! We enjoyed our food and breakfast experience...and i'm pretty sure we ate before the people standing in line outside Louisa's Place...and ironically, as we left we saw another patron with an "I [heart] Louisa's Place" bumper sticker.

So, I have to go back to try the eggs Benedict and the scratch made corned beef hash...and i'll make sure someone else orders B&G so i can have some of theirs too!
