Stopped in for dinner with several co-workers based on favorable reviews. This is a quirky little café located on a street corner and the décor is colorful and simple. The menu seems to have a decent variety and there were many of the usual southern dishes like shrimp and grits and fried chicken. I went with the turkey meatloaf which... More

Good, not great. Standard breakfast menu. Service was sketchy and parking is nil. Have eaten at other FB's that were better.

The restaurant is casual. I went solo and was lucky to catch a slower period just before the lunch rush. The wait staff was really accommodating. Often times they tend to rush a solo diner to get more people at the table, hence bigger tips. It's never happened here though. Now the food. Absolutely everything I've ever tried has been... More

This was a catered event for 50 people and they did a great job. The food was hot and tasty. The White Cheddar Grits were outstanding. They also had pancakes, scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, and turkey bacon. The food was exceptional. Great experience.

It takes wow while to read through the menu and everything is as delicious as it's described. The waitstaff appears to be chaotic but is amazingly efficient and cooperative

This is a small place, and crowded, but must have a great reputation as there were plenty of people waiting in line on a cold morning as we finished up our very good meal! We didn't have to wait when we arrived about 9am on a Saturday. The service was excellent, as were the staff. The food was just right... More
