Positive: Excellent waitstaff; good food and great location on Palafox street. We enjoyed the Special on a Thursday-chicken pot pie (good, not great-bland) and a Chicken Parmesan sandwich-also good. Service speedy.

We enjoy the amazing chicken & pecan waffles and an iced Angelina coffee, the best in town! Indoor & outdoor seating @ the top of Palafox Street with a great menu every day! Service is grand & friendly! It's a popular hangout so use your NOWAIT app for this restaurant! We will be back!

This is a great spot for a business lunch. The outside seating is cozy and quaint. Great lunch options and a full coffee menu make this place a go to. I always come here for lunch when I'm in town.

Ordered the chicken & dumpling special and wish it came with dumplings. Ate half of the dish before tasting my first dumpling. I saw only two small dumplings in the entire dish. Greens were delicious. All dishes were expensive for what was served. Will try another place next time.

The service was pretty slow and the place was freezing. The prices are high for what you get. The food was good , but I don't think it's as good as they think it is.

We stopped by for brunch before visiting Palafox Market and ate the best food we've had during our visit. Everything seemed homemade and it all tasted good. The biscuits were much better than usual restaurant fare. I don't care for onions but the ones in my egg dish were exceptionally sweet and good. The service was friendly, helpful and prompt....
