Third time same result, terrible. 25 minute wait with problem on buzzer alert (again)...seated us (a couple in their 40's) "in the round" with screaming babies on all sides. Yep we asked to sit on the other side where there were none, additional wait ensued... Service was attentive and friendly. Food was terrible, potatoes cold, fruit warm, eggs benedict lukewarm and flavorless...muffin was mealy and not well toasted, hollandaise was tasteless, the shaved ham they use instead of Canadian bacon is sharp and almost bitter with hickory. The food that we did eat sat like cinder blocks the rest of the day. Asked later by server on the one check back we got and replied honestly, she didn't seem the least bit surprised on our responses...for some unknown reason they char-grill country ham.. it's awful tasting, their bacon is limp tasteless and obviously pre-cooked and held too long as it seems much else is as well. I would add their prices are high for what you get, especially in light of the ever present wait for seating and the over all poor quality of product and preperation. We don't understand the attraction other than little competition/supply for those determined to dine out on breakfast fare.
We will not attempt eating here ever again..third time done !

A were visiting and wanted to eat somewhere we hasn't eaten before. We were pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. The wait was about 25 minutes around 11:30 on a Sunday and we decided to wait since were in no hurry. The food was delicious! Service was quick and our waiter was very polite. They had the high chair already set up when we walked to our table which made it convenient for us to be seated quickly ( my husband and two children). Would recommend and will come again.

I was here for the first time this weekend for a late Saturday breakfast. I stopped with three friends; we all enjoyed our meal, and we all had different types of food; omelettes, french toast, and shrimp grits. The servings are generous - we didn't eat again until dinner time. The prices are reasonable, and the server was helpful and friendly with relatively quick service. There many options on their menu; I recommend checking the menu online before you go. I'm making this a definite stop the next time I'm in Raleigh. Be prepared to wait as this is a popular place - for good reason!
