Had breakfast. Great pepper bacon, eggs, and homemade coarse ground grits. Pancakes and fresh maple syrup were also great. Also, a great place for grab and go food and an excellent bakery.

Great pizza, good baked goods, and a fantastic carry-out option for an entire meal (need to call ahead to place order; menu is printed weekly and different meal each day).
