Nice, quaint old small house, customers pack in and do not mind the wait outside. Has plenty of University of Alabama culture and patrons. Great breakfast.

You won't beat the welcoming atmosphere or the biscuits. Other meals are fine, but breakfast is famous for good reason. Ask to have your waitress point out The Bears traditional table. He was a regular. Roll Tide.
