We met for brunch. My husband had eggs Benedict and would order it again. I had eggs, grits, sausage and biscuit. The biscuit was okay but everything else was very good!

Took a flyer and dropped in when out foraging for somewhere to eat early on Thursday evening. Hosts and servers excellent, food fab (way too much to eat) and excellent quality. Looked after by people who cared about what they do. Great value, real buzz.
