Ate breakfast many times at this quaint, small restaurant. Excellent menu choices. Always a wait because it is popular and close to University of Alabama. Friendly staff. A little pricey but worth it. Parking is limited and need to park in the back.

Local favorite. Small town restaraunt with great breakfast. Hard to find and harder to park. But worth it once you get in.
