These are as advertised. They do a great job with eggs. If you love omelets and other egg breakfast dishes you should go here. Excellent place for meeting friends.

Good food. Parking a bit of a challenge. Staff very friendly and tables clean. Eat inside or outside. We ate there twice in one week and left happy and full both times.

It was really busy on a Sunday. My daughter had gluten free pancakes which we always appreciate, and they were pretty good. They put us by the kitchen door, try to avoid sitting there. Very noisy and not that pleasant. But overall the food was...More

We stopped in here for breakfast during a visit to University of North Carolina. The breakfast was good, as we had the more traditional items like eggs, pancakes, sausage, etc. The service was also really good. My wife asked about some in-house juices they offered,...More
