Whether I have breakfast food, like French toast and eggs, or soups and salads, the food is freshly prepared and tasty. Hot food is nice and hot always!

We went Sunday with our family for breakfast. The coffee was delicious! They have all types of milk and creamers. A good place for vegans, vegetarians, and have gluten free options. They have daily specials, you want one of everything! It was a bit pricey, $40 for breakfast. But, it was very good and highly recommend!

Dropped by for lunch and was very pleased with the whole experinece. Relaxed atmosphere and home-cooked feeling, not exculsively Southern. Will go back to try other meals. Be sure to bring cash as it is cash only.

Love the vibe of this place. Local food, unique menus and offerings. As a mommy, I have to give major props to the play area for the kiddos. It's so nice to see a place moms can enjoy a nice breakfast while the kids play. Will go back again!!

I had driven past this place many times, and never taken notice. Luckily, a friend took me here for lunch and I am so happy she did. The menu had so many choices. I had a toasted turkey and brie sandwich, with a side of homemade potato salad. Yum. My friend had a curried chicken sandwich and a fruit salad.... More

We were looking for a new breakfast/brunch spot and wanted something local, so we ended up here. Loved the atmosphere, people, kids area and the food was pretty good, too. I usually visit a place a few times to get the full experience, so we'll be going back to try more things. Pros: super cute play area for kids near... More

The breakfast specials are delightful. Cinnamon and Raisin French Toast was so good. You might be tempted to pass it by but don't make that mistake. Not fancy but clean, great food, great service. Worth a visit

This is really exceptional food served in a very funky environment in what used to be an old Bakery. The breakfast is what I have always ordered but the lunch fare looks equally good. Everything is fresh and the place is decorated in old kitchen wares and china.

We found this on Tripadvisor and very glad we did. While out of the way from campus, it is well worth the venture. All of us enjoyed our food and the setting was interesting and unique, like an old gas station. I highly recommend a visit here.

Thank Grover R
