Food is prepared with a local twist. Which is good. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Its something different for a change. You'll enjoy it.

This place really is fantastic. The quality of the food is matched by the tastyness of the dishes. The bacon gravy is rich and smokey and the shrimp and grits are fabulous. The place is cute clean and bright!

Spoiler alert is in the name! No waiting, parked in front and breskfast is awesome. I'm a plain jane multigrain pankake and local sausage girl, but blueberry, chocolate chip, pecan p's were tempting. Hot, perfectly fluffy... I'm goldilocks with the right bowl!

Wonderful, delicious and filling breakfast. Great and friendly wait staff. Good coffee and tea selection. Biscuits (without gravy) were excellent. Local jam mad a great topping. Nearby table enjoying banana pancakes were also very tempting.

Coffee was burnt (decaf must have been sitting a long time), milk was sour but we were told the expiration date was good, grits were way salty and it was very noisy (from kitchen and dining room). Disappointed and we're not returning.

We chose this restaurant based on other reviews and it didn't disappoint. The ambiance will throw you off, especially based on the path you take to get to your tables. The settings are waiting for you in a tumbler, and the tables are covered in...More

Our family of four waited 30 minutes for a table on a Tuesday morning just before 9:00 am. The dining room is quite large in the sense that it is filled with many tables although the space is tight between tables. They have a kids...More

I believe so. For instance they use croutons made out of grits for their salads. I had a friend with Celiacs visit me here, and we found that it's pretty easy to find gluten free options in most restaraunts. There is a... More
