“Late Saturday Brunch”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

It was LATE on Saturday morning and we really wanted breakfast, but not the coffee shop variety. I had been to Firefly Bistro for dinner, a private party and Sunday brunch, so why not try a Saturday brunch? This food is so good - the same menu as Sunday brunch but without all the poeple, table hopping kiddies and folks just out from church. There was a baby shower taking place out on the sidewalk seating spot, and we could actually hear the bluegrass music playing on the sound system. Firefly features food from the South - Cajun, Creole, soulfood - however you want to label it, so be ready for tasso ham, grits, beignets, andouille and so much more good stuff. Do not miss the chicken- fried chicken - it's actually listed as a paillard, just to make it sound a little classier - but there's no disguising tender chicken breast, big enough to share, with sauteed potatoes just soft enough to squish around in the yolks from perfectly cooked eggs over- easy. The andouille hash, again with those over-easy eggs, is made with sweet potatoes and enough sausage to satisfy a hungry man rasied in the South. We started with the maple and bacon beignet "small bites", which was liking having your dessert first - a perfect arrangement as far as we were concerned, since there was no room for it after our entrees! Great service, and a nice chat with the owner Carl, made it the perfect brunch experience. Saturday may very well be the new Sunday.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 12 November 2012 via mobile

My husband and I had our wedding reception here 5 years ago and it is still as great as it was then. We had a wonderful brunch while listening to live music.

“High hopes”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

The food here was very good, but half the items listed on their menu were not available. The service was friendly but disorganized. The setting was unique: like a tent inside a garden.

“Uneven”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

You might get a good meal here. Or not. The menu choices are all over the place as is the quality. If you do go ask if it's one of their music nights. The live performances in this small space tend to dominate.
