Stopped here for breakfast our second morning in Carrboro. Good diner style breakfast, and great service. An easy spot for breakfast or lunch. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Fantastic service, unique atmosphere, great menu and prices. We enjoyed the salmon cakes and chicken dumplings. The apple pumpkin bread as a side was delicious! Highly recommend!

We waited about 20 minutes on a Sunday morning to be seated, which was fine and they seemed to move quickly. Coffee while you wait is always a nice touch. Service when seated was a little slow, but was not a problem. East parking. Menu...More

Description
Like a true diner, we serve homemade food and breakfast all the time. We have comfy booths, as well as tables, and lots of high chairs and boosters for the little ones! We are a gathering place where locals are sure to see someone they know and visitors are likely to make new friends. We’re a community restaurant both in the sense that we are a local favorite and in the sense that we strive to be good neighbors and give back to our community
