Ordered the chicken salad on croissant and it was so very good. It came with a salad so I ordered the dressing my waitress suggested, the blackberry vinegrette. It was "died and gone to heaven" good. Service was fast and friendly. Am looking forward to returning soon!

Food and atmosphere are amazing! The food is made in house and the taste is confirmation. We had a table of 7 which ordered omelette, grilled chicken, hamburger, bisquit and gravy, and more, all food was excellent and we tasted off each other's plates. Staff is friendly and service was great, including a table visit from the owner checking on... More

We found this little restaurant by just passing by and decided to try it for breakfast. Fast and friendly service. Our breakfast came quickly and everything was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be dining here again.

On our trek back to Tx I craved someone else's gourmet cooking other than mine. This stop was such a pleasant surprise! I indulged in the Egg Sardou=Benedict. Eggs benedict Muffin with a layer of artichoke, poached eggs smothered in Tony Chacheras creamed spinach topped with home made Hollandaise Sauce! Mouth watering! Beignet Sticks were just a bonus!

The breakfast food and service was very good but it took a long time to get our food. The sever kept us informed that our food was coming but too slow. We will try again.

The wife had cheese grits, sausage, biscuit with a side of white gravy which she had been wanting for awhile and said it hit the spot. I go here quite often... More

We were traveling to Navarre, FL. and needed some lunch. We aren't your typical folks who want or like the normal 'fast-food' restaurants for food. We spotted this great little cafe that closed in 25 minutes from when we entered. We had such wonderful, warm and caring service and they had two of their lunch specials that we could have.... More

Stopped by for a late breakfast on black Friday and had a fairly good meal. I ordered eggs benedict - not bad at all, just needed more than a tablespoon of hollandaise sauce that I got. My dining companion ordered a fried egg over hard and a side of bacon. Pretty good. Hot tea and a coffee rounded out the... More

Stumbled upon this little cafe on my way to the Abita brewery. Ordered the Eggs Sardou for breakfast. Excellent coffee in a never ending cup, friendly waitresses and good service. But the pinnacle of the the meal was the moist, (not too moist) flaky, flavorful biscuit that accompanied my breakfast. If you're ever in the area, don't miss it!
