Not very busy when we called in. It's quite a big place and I imagine no one will have to wait long for a table. I had the crab benedict it was great. Quick friendly service.

A little wait on weekends but the food is good. I don't recommend the crab benedict but the others are good as are the eggs and grits waffles and pancakes.

Can't find a menu online, but they have typical breakfast foods: pancakes, waffles, omlettes, sausage gravy & biscuits. Very reasonably priced and very good. I had stuffed french toast and a side of loaded homefries that... More
