Great lunch stop with hungry 2 year olds. Great home made chocolate milk, and chips with salsa to die for. Great service from Hannah. I want a set of the salad bowls they use.

Oh, it was wonderful. We had kale "bennies", The Fun Guy omelette, and a carafe of cranberry mimosa. Cheese grits and potatoes as sides. Everything was delicious, with the possible exception of the mimosas--next time (and there will BE a next time), I'll have orange...More
