From entering to leaving, a great experience. Friendly, efficient staff. Some unusual food choices, and so very delicious. Their own hot sauce was amazing, not just all heat and vinegar, but actually flavorful. Left with 2 bottles. Highly recommended. Even if on our next trip...More

Went for breakfast and everything was just as I ordered it! All breakfasts are not equal and every interpretation of eggs “over easy” can be different - these were perfect. Being from the south I didn’t expect grits would be either available or cooked correctly...More

This was the best Egg Benedict I’ve ever had. It was filled with spinach, asparagus, mushrooms, artichokes, and tomatoes, topped with perfectly cooked dropped eggs on English muffins and covered with a smooth Hollandaise sauce, with a side of home fries.
