The portion is big, I like the cheese grit (come with omelet )which is my first time trying it. I love those cheeses! A must eat place! Which... More

I called ahead & the Hostess said "There's no wait right now." Too good to be true, right? By the time I drove 3 miles & waited for a parking space, 28 people passed me (I counted them in the Lobby). A 30-minute wait, since she didn't bother to write my name down. Then I had the misfortune to be... More

I had the sirloin steak with green onions and green peppers and cheese scramble egg dish. It was extremely tasty. The home fries were almost as good as my wife's homemade fries. My wife enjoyed her French toast and my daughter enjoyed her biscuits and gravy. It was also very convenient to go shopping next-door at the Goodwill and have... More

Call ahead for seating because the wait is 30-45 minutes. The food is excellent, fresh and local. Coffee is also very good with special brews available, cappuccino, mocha,etc

You're going to have to wait. There is no avoiding it. But that is what you get when you have literally the best breakfast in Memphis. The food here...beyond amazing! Fresh, local ingredients, friendly staff, eclectic and original..you can't go wrong. The ONLY downside...no mimosas or bloody Mary's...but the food completely makes up for it. Totally worth it..every time!

Decor, service, food and cost just does not get any better. This is an omelot factory with a system that provides top quality food in a flash. This is not only a great meal but an amaxing experience in the art of speedy service

I was in Memphis for a long weekend and this restaurant served the best food by far. I had the very tasty veggie tofu scramble, the best biscuit in the world and delicious home fries. My husband had the omelets which he said were very good. The service was excellent to boot! You can look at the various artwork which... More

I think this is a perfect brunch place for a variety of people- vegetarians, picky eaters, and adventurous eaters alike. I love to get a salmon, egg, and cheese biscuit or an order of loaded grits here. I have been coming for years and some of the waiters even know my coffee order without even asking. Love the homey atmosphere... More

My husband and I read the rave reviews of this place so we were super excited to get in so quick when we arrived. Place was busy, waitress was pleasant, menu was a good size. We ordered lattes to start while we decided what to eat. They came scalding hot, and when they cooled down we found them okay but... More

I had some time last Thursday morning and decided to try this restaurant for breakfast. I found them rated highly on TripAdvisor and gave them a try. Evidently there is a long wait on Saturday and Sunday. I only waited about 10 minutes on a Thursday. I got there about 9:00 am. I was greeted and took a seat in... More
