Had high hopes for this restaurant, being in Montgomery County and close to many great farms and local food artisans - but besides the homemade ice cream and bacon - the food was just average. We went as a family, for Sunday brunch and agreed that the bacon - offered with 4 different glazes (we had the black pepper/maple syrup) - was worth the trip alone. It was smoky, meaty with just enough crispy fat around the edges, and incredibly flavorful - thumbs up from everyone. Had high hopes for the Pastrami Hash, which the server noted was a favorite - which turned out actually to be a green pepper hash with a few bits of pastrami and sadly lacking in seasoning. The eggs were poached well, but the tangy creole mustard screamed for more hash to balance the plate. We also ordered the fried chicken and waffles, the chicken was tasty, crispy and moist, waffles were crispy but had some strange unplaceable taste - wasn't bad, just different, maybe unexpected. We all agreed again, that the bakery/pastry items were very good - Buck's beignets were eggy, hot and tasty, closer to popover consistency than traditional beignets (and I've had a lot of beignets in NOLA) - but still a great start, and accompanied by caramel, chocolate and raspberry sauce. Apple pie too, was very good, with a nice flaky pastry, and delicious homemade vanilla ice cream. Contrary to some of the other reviews the service was good, we were seated immediately on Sunday morning at 10 AM, even with a long line in front of us. Our server was attentive, offered suggestions readily, and even added a birthday candle to my son's dessert (unremarkable chocolate mousse cake with a very tasty homemade raspberry ice cream) without being asked. Atmosphere was noisy, and crowded but that's our style and with kids made things easy. We liked looking at the décor - open warehouse style, with big jars of every pickled vegetable imaginable kept our interest. Sides and drinks really raised the prices up ($6 for 3 slices of bacon, $4 for every drink - and made up more than half of our bill). Overall, a good concept that fails a bit in execution.
