The staff was friendly, the environment was adorable, and the food was so yummy! A perfect little breakfast place to go solo or with friends. The scrambled eggs and sausage were good, but everyone around me loved what they had too!

This was the first time we didn't have to wait in line for a table. Maybe because 9:30 am on a Sunday is too early the college students? Whatever the reason, it was nice to be able to sit outside. Server was super personable and...More

We stopped here for brunch before hitting the road to go back home after a visit to the area. First, I will caveat this review by saying that we were there on Mother's Day. So, I would definitely expect that most places would be busy...More

Perfect college breakfast or lunch opportunity to connect with your kids! Although if I lived in CVille, I would eat here at least once a week. Small and intimate and yet they have good service and unique options on the menu. Great coffee!

Had a great eggs benedict and a cinnamon roll. The benedict was served on a biscuit which was really light - made for one of the best benedicts i have ever eaten. Highly recommend this place.

This place is under new management. My companion was from the north and loves shrimp and grits. He thought it was some of the best he'd ever eaten. It is very rare to find actual "home fries" in the south. They were great hand cut...More

This is a cute little place with tons of college kids, even in the summer, so there's a fun young vibe. Because it's small, we expected a wait. The sign out front said that it was under new ownership. Food was so-so and took FOREVER!...More

What a great, cute little hole in the wall for breakfast! It's not gourmet food with 5-star service, but I would go back in a heartbeat. The pancakes are delicious, and the menu is so varied it's hard to choose what to get. Perfect for...More
