Stumbled on this restaurant on a day when not much was open. Very efficient cashier and great food. Had the omelets in skillet served with grits, and a delicious biscuit. Would recommend this place highly, also had a reasonably priced selection of wine by bottle.

The pumpkin pancakes were great along with the hashbrowns. They have lovely lunch sandwiches to choose from too. I have eaten here before and wasn't disappointed either time.

Awesome breakfast and brunch options! Friendly and quick service! You can find food that is diet friendly or super indulgent. Their pastries are amazing...I recommend their cinnamon buns and scones.
