I could probably eat here every day and never be disappointed. The food is always fresh, generous and served in a very timely manner. There is also a separate section where you can purchase already prepared meals to take home and the ones I've tried have all been equally wonderful.

The food here is delicious and served fast but is not fast food by any means. Our wait staff was friendly and the atmosphere was fun with artwork and clean. I recommend this eatery.

Thanks for the review, you are correct we are quick service not fast food. There is a difference, we cook everything to order so the food will take a little time, but we do are best to get the food out at a reasonable pace. We are happy you enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you soon.

Best Breakfast in Aiken. You must try the Kickersnoodle coffee! I usually get the gourmet grits. They have many items available for adding to your bowl of grits, like cheese, sausage, bacon, ham, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers etc...The breakfast sandwiches are great too! My son's favorite is The Troy, bacon, sausage, egg, cheese, and their gourmet honey mustard. Don't forget a side of fruit salad!

Thank you for the kind words. All the thanks for the Kickersnoodle coffee is our friends across the street at New Moon Cafe. Hope to see you back in here again soon!

Went for lunch. Had sandwiches that were tasty & generous- actually too much food for lunch! Place was busy, and we understand why! We’ll be back!
