We have had breakfast here the last two times that we have visited Helen. It is a very nice, friendly place. We look forward to going there again the next time we are there.

Food very good and service excellent. We had turkey and cheese sandwich with onion rings and third pound burger. Both were very good and prices reasonable for tourist town.

I got the soup with a sandwich.The sandwich was good.When I asked if I could have crackers,the owner's daughter told me that's what the sandwich is for.But she would let me have some this time.I thought that was rude.Our waitress was nice tho.

What a lovely surprise. We felt like family right when we walked in. The coffee was wonderful, the food was great! The corn beef hash was unique and very tasty. The homemade biscuits were phenomenal. The wait staff was very friendly and prompt. If we are ever back in Helen, we will definitely go back!

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!

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!!
