Despite having to wait about 30 minutes to be seated on a Sunday morning it was worth the wait. We had a party of seven and everything was excellent. Don't skip the Cinnamon roll!

We stop in regularly for a quick, tasty breakfast. It does get a bit crowded but we can usually be seated in just a few minutes. Simple, tasty food, plated nicely and quick service.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast before Easter services. The service was great and so was the food. Best scrambled eggs ever in a restaurant. Fresh food perfectly cooked. Worth the trip to eat there. Enjoy.

A delightfully cozy and homey cafe. Friendly service, delightful food, great atmosphere. A wonderful and relaxing breakfast spot. It's a bit hard to find (not visible from Frederica Rd, but worth the effort.
