I have eaten breakfast here 3 times and very much enjoy the food. But unable to visit a lot because of the price. Went solo and my cost was $30+. Breakfast items are unique. Presentation excellent.

Signature dishes include Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Biscuits, Meatloaf and Duck Fat Fried Potatoes.
