Disappointed in limited baked goods as a bakery. Ordered the biscuit sandwiches. Just FYI, the biscuits are smaller than the biscuits you would get at McDonald's. They could have been fantastic, but we had to peel off the very hard top and hard bottom layer. I was able to hit the bottom later of the biscuit on the table and... More

Stopped here for breakfast after our arrival in Savannah. Biscuits were delicious...just with butter and jam or the "make your own"option. One will fill you up! Located in a us neighborhood just north of historic district. A little pricier than I expected (make your own biscuits and tea or coffee for four ran $40) but worth it for the ambience... More

My sister read about this bakery in the NY Times as they were known for their biscones (combination biscuit and scone). And while there were no biscones the day we went, we enjoyed many other treats for breakfast. The bakery is a cute little space where you can watch the folks bake the biscuits and other items. There are tables... More

Read about this place in the Delta inflight magazine on a recent flight. It's located in the Starland area of Savannah and evidently has been there for years. Popped in around 10 am on a Tuesday morning and the place was almost full. Funky vibe. Cool place to hang out. My wife and I both opted for the cheese scone... More

We had bacon and cheddar biscuits. I was bummed out at first that they didn't have ketchup or hot sauce to put on my sandwich but once I tasted it I was glad they didn't. It was so yummy on its own and the condiments would have ruined that! Would definitely reccomend check out this spot.

The charm of this place is almost overwhelrming. It's cute and sweet in an endearing, comforting way. Best chicken salad sandwich of my life, pecan pie was amazing and we could see the bakers working in the back as well. Very nice visit.

I have wanted to go here ever since I saw an article in Southern Living, but only recently made it by and I am so glad I did! My husband and I had brownies which were huge, moist, and very delicious. We bought a baguette and chocolate chip cookies to take back home with us as a thank you to... More

Great little bakery popular with the locals. I am amazed how they make a heavy looking biscuit so lite and airy. I highly recommend the cinnamon bun with icing. Friendly atmosphere in a bohemian location. If you plan on going on the weekend, be prepared to stand on line; worth the wait.

Thank Matt C
