We enjoyed our breakfast: corned beef hash and southern omelette with collards, swiss cheese and andouille sausage. The sweet potato fries were excellent! Good service, nicely presented.

They make a great omelet and have done if the best , creamiest grits I’ve ever eaten ! They’re located in an old residential neighborhood, very picturesque. We’d go back again !

If you're having a laid back Saturday morning, just bring something to read and have a nice relaxing wait. It will be worth it.
