We ate breakfast at Buck's three mornings. They have an excellent muffin breakfast sandwich and the best coffee around!

The service is fast and friendly. The coffee was yummy. There was seating inside and outside. We sat inside where there was a Bible study going on so we listened in. It is also a nice place to read a newspaper

A lovely atmosphere for enjoying your morning cup of joe. The scones & muffins were delicious and there were many fabulous seating options.

Nothing special here, except the high tourist prices. They have a place in Cashiers too. Same issues. If you are desperate for a cup of coffee, well, go ahead.

Buck's was charming. Most of the people in line seemed to be locals. The staff was super friendly. Bucks has lots of breakfast sandwich options and baked goods with plenty of seating!

Went in there ravenous and more than felt satiated when I left. One of the best pizzas that I have eaten. Thin crust and jammed with toppings. Very friendly staff!

Small family restaurant, open early Sunday morning for good coffee, before hitting the road. Short line, offer great pastries and fudge cookies, apparently home made, friendly, clean, nice somebody is up early !
