Daily lunch specials and a variety of foods (including fried green tomatoes blt). Has a local feel and doesn't take long for them to know you by names. Mimosas available for brunch. The portions are so large it is easy to share.

My favorite spot in downtown Columbia. The Pimento burger is a must have. We haven't try anything on the menu that isn't wonderful. The owner and staff are great. Breakfast Lunch or Dinner. ...Don't miss this hidden gem.

Heard about this little restaurant and stopped by yesterday. It is small and yesterday it was extremely busy for lunch with college graduations held downtown. We were greeted upon entering and menus were brought to our table. In no time our food was brought out and both the bacon cheeseburger and chicken Caesar Salad were delicious. Staff was friendly and... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch while attending a conference nearby. No complaints here. Good food and service. The place seemed a little cluttered, but that's not a big deal in my book.

For breakfast, hotel restaurants are $$$ and usually lousy...this place was a real find! Fast, friendly service & and a terrific breakfast. Their dinner specials looked good, too: real, home-coked food: probably caters to the local college clientele. The owner even sent over a plate of homemade brownies when we were paying the check!

good food for lunch. Open Saturdays during Soda Market for an alternative to the vendors. ( air conditioned!). Very reasonable prices. Not located directly on Hampton Street, but on side access way between Marriott and Parking Garage. ( Easily missed if you are on Hampton!)

I found this place while staying at the Marriott. Not wanting to pay $15 for breakfast I saw this place open and decided to give it a try. I was surprised and a bit worried that I was the only customer but once I tried the food I was no longer worried. I had their breakfast platter which was 2... More

Hidden behind the Marriott on Main, this little deli is a special find. Prices are very reasonable, portions are ample, and the atmosphere is one of locals' comfort zone. Staff were exceptionally friendly and remembered us with each visit. We had one breakfast, two lunches and one dinner over a two and a half day stay. The chicken quesadilla and... More
