“We all had breakfast here during HarborFest ...”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Location is nice as it's walking distance from the new marina if your cruising. I had a homemade biscuit with fresh strawberry jam, applewood bacon and two perfect over medium eggs with grits. Now get this .... they serve real sweet cream butter on the table. We arrived around brunch time and they were slammed. Our wait wasn't bad, we just didn't understand the ordering procedure. Everyone in our party of four was pleased with their meal. It's in an old home that is small and seating is distributed in three rooms. There is art for sale everywhere. Staff is friendly. They get the 5 stars for the real butter and generous portions of OJ and milk in mason jars. Wife and I split a large strawberry lemonade and it was delicious.

“cafe wanna be”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Coffee shop by day,but a bar at night. Across the street from a church, three blocks from a school. How does that happen?
Seems to be a place to see and be seen. Food is average, service is friendly, but S-L-O-W.

“Coffee shop and more...”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

They were having a children's poetry reading when we were there and the kids loved having all the other children around to play with. The food was good. My wife had the frittata and loved it. I had an omelet, which was pretty good. The service was a little in disarray due to the children's poetry,but they were very friendly. Overall it was very good.

“Great Lunch & Catering”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Used the Mockingbird Cafe for catering for a business meeting. Everything was great. I also went back and had lunch and really enjoyed a tasty turkey sandwich.

“An oasis”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

A Must visit cafe/ bar/ meals homely place. For the tourist a very typical southern wooden framed home converted to accommodate its customers in a relaxed, cool, environment. Service is great and just in the right place for a visit following shopping and browsing about the Main Street. Good range of draft beers on tap, coffees and teas as well as the normal range of soft drinks. We did not visit to eat but the atmosphere is a relaxed and friendly one and the service comes with that typical American drawl. Great experience
