Wonderful place for brunch. The steel cut oats are fabulous! House potatoes are excellent, fresh orange juice topped it off.

Sonja, sometimes we have a hit, and others, a miss -- unfortunately, we obviously had a miss with your visit. By focusing our menu on classic southern recipes, we make decisions based on a large variety of personal choices - some people want relish in...More

The meatloaf and bacon sandwhich was great but I highly suggest the shrimp and grits. That's what my wife ordered and it was incredible. I would highly suggest this place for lunch.

Very happy with the menu options, waiting staff, and fresh local food. We sat outside on a warm September morning and enjoyed the soft tunes of folk music. Great spot for friends, family and lovers!

Went for dinner and the place was surprisingly empty. Service was friendly and fast. Food was good and prices average. It seems to be a hipster spin on the typical southern diner fare...but with smaller portions and higher prices - though higher quality food fortunately....More

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.
