This is the usual "breakfast / lunch" option for The Jefferson hotel, but there is nothing "usual" about it. The staff are friendly and professional, the food is excellent, and the surroundings are beautiful! Breakfast or lunch here is an elegant treat.

The special breakfast dishes are prepared beautifully undeserved by pleasant professional staff. The local Southern flavors add character to the breakfast menu.
