“Did we eat on the wrong day?”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Lot's of great reviews here - we had breakfast because there wasn't another place open nearby on Monday morning. Table was sticky, coffee was acrid and burnt tasting, omelot was overdone, rubbery and dry, hash browns were NOT brown (isn't there a reason they're called hash browns???), the "butter" on the table was some kind of spread, the "cream" was coffeemate, and two breakfasts cost just under $17. I rarely bother to write negative reviews and I eat in lots of dives, no problem, but this was really bad. And the decor was...just strange.

“Nice place, Great food, Nice people...”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Great food. Nice people. Simple place, but nice and clean. Like a small dinner.
As a polish person - I took some of my friends there. Due to some of my dietary restrictions I could only sample some of the dishes, but the one I tried were fantastic - truly "home made style". The other foods - my friends enjoyed and they told me the food was great.

I know I will be going there in the future... The only problem for me - is that it takes us 2-hr drive from Greenville SC to get there so we will not be going there as often as we wish..

“Syd's review did not have enough exclamation points!”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

Baba's exceeded my expectations when hoping for excellent breakfast fare at very reasonable prices. There are too many items on their menu for me to comment (a plus since I like variety), but just the regular breakfast like the "Hungry Man" with eggs, sausage, ham, biscuit and gravy, and hash brown potatoes is enough said for me. Service was excellent, nice chat with the Chief Cook and Bottle Washer, and the lavender atmosphere. They will also be open Thu, Fri, and Sat evenings from 5pm to 8pm as well as there regular breakfast and lunch hours till 2pm. If you don't go -- you won't know! Blessings!
