I love eggs Benedict so while on a road trip we stopped here for breakfast. It did not disappoint! We ate outside which was very pleasant. The service was good and the classic Eggs Benedict was delicious. My side of grits was also creamy and good. My friend had a spinach omelet that was also good. The menu is good... More

I read a previous review about Saturday morning crowds and, being Saturday morning was a little leery. We went anyway and found it busy but no wait at 9:20a. The waitress came promptly for drink orders (rare) and we were ready to order food as well. The drinks came quickly, and despite the crowd, the food did not take long,... More

The lot was full and so were the tables. It is deservedly one of the best spots in The Woodlands for breakfast. Normally, that kind of busy-ness means breakfast suffers, but not so. The food was great, the coffee pot refilled, and food was delivered and cleared as necessary. Jobs that needed to be done got done without regard for... More

Highly rated on Yelp, so we gave it a try. Good menu choices, clean premise, good staff, so when the food arrived it was above average. I had an eggs Benedict, but had to request extra Hollandaise sauce, twice, as they are a bit shy with it. Everybody in our group liked their choice. I didn't give it 5 stars... More

Eggs, grits and english muffin was very good. Bacon was well done but not crisp. Service was outstanding and the place is nice . Seemed to be a favorite among locals.

You cannot relax and start your morning here. It's crazy - at least on Saturday. There is NO room to wait for a table if they are crowded. You can stand on the curb or crowd around the greeting table. When they relocated, seems like they would have allowed for this a little more. Food is okay, but don't expect... More

This is a solid breakfast stop in the area. Good breakfast selection. Had the spinach bacon omelette and it was very good. Pancakes look awesome as well. Service is a bit slow which is not on the staff. They just needed more help. Will come back when in the area.

This dining establishment continues to impress. Each member of the staff is well trained in what they do. The wait time was exactly what they said which was 5 to 10 minutes. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and polite. She visited our table at the proper intervals and made sure all was right. The best is last and that is... More
