We were in town for a nearby appointment and arrived for a late breakfast. There was a short wait of about 10 minutes-I hear its much longer on the weekends. I ordered the special of the day which was Eggs Benedict. It was wonderful, maybe...More

We ate here for a business meeting and the food was remarkable! Everything was made from scratch and you could tell the ingredients were fresh. Even though it is southern style home cooking, they care about the farm to table concept. My only complaint for...More

We found this place on a Sunday morning when we arrived in Phoenix and were waiting to check into our room. We got there around 10:30 am and there was a long line waiting for a table. I believe we waited between 20 and 30...More

With all the rave reviews, I was expecting more. My husband had the cheese omelet which he said was good. I had the griddlecakes with a side of bacon. There were three pancakes with only 2 ounces of syrup, so they were kind of dry....More

Definitely! It has to be one of their busiest days! Come early or bring something to read or someone to talk to, as You may have to wait depending on your arrival time. It's worth the wait!
