The food is excellent, especially breakfast. However, everything taste great. Good service and very reasonable prices. You can also sit back and enjoy the decor and when you are finished go enjoy the local market place.

This place never disappoints and is still relevant even amongst the hip downtown Raleigh foodie scene. I even spotted someone from "Southern" California buttering up a cat head biscuit at lunch today!
