In the 200 block of W Palmetto just around the corner from US 52 Business, there's a new kid in town. I ate there this week, loved the experience.
The breakfast menu is extensive, so it took me a bit to decide what to try for my first visit. I eventually settled on an omelette with chopped, grilled chicken, brocolli, mushrooms, cheddar and a few other things. It came with a choice of wheat or white toast, grits. I elected to get the red potatoes for a small up-charge. The ingredients were fresh, not overcooked and very tasty.
The server is not as well-versed on the bill of fare as one would expect, but be persistent and you'll come out on the winning side. They use cloth napkins, that's a bonus that was unexpected. There are two spacious dining areas, so you'll probably never have to wait to be seated and served. The large windows afford you a nice view of the downtown Florence skyline as it changes with its new development. There's plenty of parking too. They open at 6 on weekdays, but they're open 7 days a week.
There's 9 different omelettes, pancakes, waffles, traditional egg & meat combos, biscuts and sandwiches with several sides. If you can't find something to satisfy, you're not hungry! There's even real butter for those who still indulge. Their menus for all three meals are on Facebook, so it doesn't have to be an unknown quantity experience. It's a mix of American and Asian cuisine after breakfast.
They've only been open since summer, 2013, so they are still building a customer base. I'm in, are you?
