We came for a late lunch on a Friday. The service was fast and perfect. The food was delicious. That is it, but TripAdvisor asks for 💯 words......bla...bla....bla...

Perfect breakfast spot. Unique omelettes with terrific pancake sides. We had to wait about twenty minutes but was well worth it. Friendly attentive servers made breakfast even more enjoyable.

We love this place! Farm to table! Wait staff friendly. Only concern is don't go hungry the wait on the weekends is long but worth it! The bloody Mary's are spicy spicy and good mimosas. We try to get there at least once a month.

We went for brunch around 11 am and waited for almost an hour to get in. It is really small inside but I'll tell you, the wait was so worth it. Our waitress was super nice and attentive. They have a cool variety of foods that you may not find in other places. My daughter had the grit bowl and... More

Like the salads with goat cheese or crab cakes the fresh food is best, second the shrimp and grits, I cannot stand the potatoe salad or the deep fried cabbage spring rolls. My daughter is a fan of the 3 pancakes brunch choice. The cafe is crowded as ever in spite of the addition of the former broom cabinet, later... More

NC is home but I'm visiting from FL and this was the greatest welcome back. True southern cooking. Got the shrimp and grits (with no shrimp. I'm allergic) and I was NOT disappointed. Bless local businesses.

My daughter lives in Greensboro and took us to lunch. It was crowded but we got seated fairly quickly. I ordered fried chicken livers and they were delicious. I cant remember what my daughter or husband ordered but we were all very pleased.

Wow! Great fresh food. We fully enjoyed the selections. My daughter recommended-so we gave it a try! Just prepare yourself for a wait. As with all great restaurants-once the word gets out...you must wait!

We are an owner-operated coffee shop, cafe, and catering company, with an award-winning chef. We serve organic, fair trade coffee; local, seasonal, and sustainable food daily. It is our mission to connect the food we serve to the farm it came from and to the people at our tables. We favor organic and North Carolina grown, but make concessions in both areas in order to highlight other farmers and producers with time-honored methods and very good products. We pride ourselves in being responsible both locally and globally, by recycling, reducing waste, and insuring all disposable products are eco-sound. We look forward to exchange between chef/staff and community in order to grow, and to meet the needs of those we serve.
