To be honest, this was not our first choice for breakfast, but we ended up here because the line was a mile long at our original choice. We got right in here, and the folks who work here are the nicest people in the world. The cook (and I think the owner) came out to be sure everything was ok.... More

Our first visit to this restaurant. Country fried steak and eggs with grits and biscuits is enough to fill a full grown man! The service was excellent! The food quality is what you would expect of a good country restaurant. Will return on our next trip to Helen.

Since we were never seated, all that I can review is the poor customer service here. We went on a fairly busy Sunday morning for breakfast, and waited for around 45 minures. While waiting there were other groups that were seated that came after we did, so when I questioned why the long wait, I was given a run around... More

The waitress was wonderful. The coffee was good but the food was not. My potatoes were cold. My husband said his grits tasted like soap. It is not pricey but we will not be back.

We were seeking a quiet place for lunch, as the (very good) street music was a bit loud for us. This was not only quiet, the service and food were great in a relaxing and uplifting atmosphere. Worthwhile all around!

Went with family for breakfast. The staff was really friendly. The food is okay. It's nothing special. I got the two egg breakfast with sausage, grits and a biscuit. The biscuit was homemade. It was the best thing I ate there. I also tried the pancakes, they weren't anything special.

We make a point of eating here every time we visit Helen. Great, homemade food with lots of daily specials at an affordable price, especially for Helen. Breakfast and lunch only, can get a little crowded but it's worth the wait. Staff is super friendly and efficient. Just an FYI- no alcohol served here, so look elsewhere if you're craving... More

Friendly greeter, seated outside, weather was prefect. The staff was pleasant. Food was so served room temperature and the amount of time that it took to get requests filled was longer than usual.

This great restaurant is in conjunction to a great little gift shop called The Village Peddler. You can eat in or out in a charming courtyard or on the porch. Wait staff are very friendly as the food is down home good! We are a retired couple but love to bring our children and grandchildren as well as friends. Very relaxing and price is very moderate!!
