Stopped for breakfast and good food and good service! Went on a Monday morning and it was pretty quiet, service was quick and they had no issues accommodating my husbands lactose allergy. Tough to avoid butter in the south! Recommend for breakfast!

Stopped here on our vacation. Atmosphere was cute, waitresses were super nice and had that southern charm. Food was decent I recommend any burger and the fried green tomatoes. It’s a good place to stop for a quick bite at a sit down restaurant.
