Our first visit (husband, 14 mo/old granddaughter & myself) was for breakfast toward the end of their second week. We were seated immediately, at the last table available, just to the right of the front door. The table itself would have qualified as a thrill ride - it rocked back & forth, side to side, and spun on its pedestal. Things were actually moving on the tabletop. We couldn't stabilize it, and our GD ended up getting her fingers pinched hard against her highchair. I'm sure other diners wondered what we had done to make her howl. They were out of unsweetened tea, so our server brought me very sweet tea (ugh!), which I sent back in favor of a Coke - not in the habit of drinking that with an omelet. She did bring unsweetened once it was made. It took a full 45 minutes to get our food - 2 omelets, plus eggs over-easy for Little Miss. It was good, but she was hungry & losing patience. Everyone was pleasant, but we had to ask for beverage refills, and I've never had something substituted without being asked first. She meant well, I know - it was just odd. Hopefully, the rock'n'roll table was taken apart & reassembled before someone else got pinched, or their food slid off the end.
We decided to try again this week, and it was a much better experience. Service is youthful, friendly, and very attentive. The cafe is mostly hard surfaces, so noisy, but a good kind of noisy. Tables are pretty close together, which makes navigating to the restroom in the back interesting - I have my doubts that a wheelchair guest could do it without furniture (& other diners) being moved. Restroom immaculate, BTW. Coffee cup, tea & water glasses were kept filled, and the food arrived within a reasonable time. The omelet, bacon & eggs & 2 eggs for the little one were tasty - her eggs were huge, and she enjoyed them immensely. I will say that the potatoes are not much different from those at Perkins - I'd rather have the option of grits or a small fruit cup. The table stayed put, and Little Miss liked being able to see the sports highlights on the bar TVs. Outdoor seating is available, but it looks out on Publix's parking lot, so not exactly scenic, and I suspect it will be too hot to eat out there in a matter of weeks.
We'll be back - for brunch or lunch next time. I want to try the shrimp & grits.
