The food is always good and plentiful. They start with a nice cheese spread. Have never
had a bad meal. If you are not extremely hungry you might be taking some home with you.
Usually very busy.

Delicious shrimp and grits, friendly staff? We also bought some toffee to bring home and it did not last the trip!

Great local spot that you could easily drive right by....but don't. Cozy seating to sit outside when the weather works.

Shrimp and grits wee wonderful as well as the grilled bread salad.

Service is attentive. I would go back again and again.

We were here recently, and probably for the last time. Breakfast is good, but you can't get out of here with a bill under $30. Too many other options abound...

Lunch here while on little side trip to Bluffton and very impressed with superfood salads. Great menu which changes from lunch to afternoon tea at 3 to dinner at 5.30/6. Nice cottage feel and cute little tables on the porch.

The salads were the highlight and were delicious and very tasty. Sweet tea was good and the banana cream pie a naughty extra, and all very reasonably priced for a tourist town. Lovely baked goods and other pies for sale inside behind the glass counter. The toilet was located through the kitchen area but was fine - it is a converted house after all !!!
