Had breakfast for lynch. The fried green tomatoes were very hiid, but did not like the grits. They were hominy grits which I do not like. The omlet was greasy. The place was noisy and I found the waiters not professional. Not what I expected and very disappointed.

Met friends for lunch on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Table for 6 comfortable. Noise level fine, didn't have to wait long for table or for food. Service was prompt and very pleasant. Food was delicious, including fried green tomatoes BLT and Cobb salad. Local beers available.

You practically walk through the kitchen to get to your table! Breakfast was good and there were plenty of customers. However, you have to leave the building to go to the next shop to use the facilities. Not sure that it can be changed, but it does give one pause.

Found this by chance, 9.0am Saturday morning. It was already full of locals - always a good sign. We had the sausage and sweet potato scramble, which was excellent. Our server, Lene, was welcoming, friendly and efficient.

The menu has a nice variety of items including daily specials. Seating is limited and waits can be long. Coffee available while you wait. The ginger bread is amazing and this time I enjoyed the "Eggs Benny". Amazing!!

Ran in here to escape the freezing cold April weather! Nice menu definitely not run of the mill food, quirky and a nice atmosphere. A bit on the expensive side for a lunch.

Enjoyed a very delicious and filling breakfast that features locally sourced ingredients and southern fare. Recommend the blackeyed pea stack for breakfast with the green hot sauce (you'll find it on the tables) and the local jam for biscuits is damn good. Bought some of the hot sauce and jam to take home!

Thank rorich182
