We arrived for lunch just as they were closing but they allowed us to order a take-out lunch. We had lunch in the park across the street. Couldn't ask for better southern hospitality.

We went there for breakfast when Uncle Buck’s in Bass Pro failed to wait on us with their slow service. Best meal we had the whole trip! Waffles were our favorite, and the atmosphere was perfect for an early morning breakfast. It really showed us...More

We enjoyed the pancakes and the biscuits and gravy. The service was good as well. It was crowded but we did not wait long.

Cute, friendly restaurant that covers the base of offering a standard breakfast downtown. Waffles and pancakes were decent, grits were good, biscuits were great & the coffee was average. Very fast service.

All the choices you’d want for breakfast. Friendly waitstaff, quick service. Easy to walk to from accommodations downtown. Art work on the walls is available for purchase. Omelets were large and filled. Pancakes were huge and a three stack is plenty. Syrup is served hot!

Great experience of a true southern style breakfast here on a busy Saturday morning. Short wait was worth it. The biscuits and gravy were a real treat. My companion's pancake serving was enormous. Good service and full belly to boot.
