“Great out of the way cafe with excellent food”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is great with the cafe being in an old house. The chicken fried chicken and real mashed potatos and gravy was great with large portion for lunch. I love fried green tomatoes and these with the meal were perfect, thin cut with not a lot of breading and not greasy. Service was awesome. Worth the drive.

“Nice lunch on a rainy day”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We stopped for lunch on a rainy weekday. The food was well-prepared and the service was friendly and efficient. It was a relaxing stop on a long drive. Worth the trip!

“Fun to Find”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

What a treat to find such good food away from beah front tourism. Not too far from Kiln and the Lazy Magnolia Brewery, this comfortable and friendly cafe offered very good, local fare. We shared the "porch" with colorful local characters that only enhanced our experience. We would definitely return at every opportunity.

“A hidden gem that's worth the drive!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

I'm suspecting the chef is from New Orleans! We've been there 4 or 5 times now and can't get enough. Friendly staff with a menu that will please multiple personalities. The shrimp and grits are to die for!
Leave room for cheesecake beignets!!!!
Can't wait to return!

“In the woods”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Rather out in the woods, did not feel food was all that special. Seems locals like it there, kid friendly.
