“Rude service, tasteless food, high prices for the area”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We've been dining around Florence for the last three years of travel through the area and this is by far the worst place we've been. The waitress wouldn't let us sit near a window, insisting we sit near the kitchen so she wouldn't have to walk 13feet more to our table. She tossed us our ticket not five minutes after receiving our meal. The gravy was bland and tasted like flour. The biscuits were dry but huge. The country steak was at least flavored. The muffins were flavorless and tart. The waffle was decent. The prices were $1 to $3 more than other restaurants in the area. I expect those prices for fine dining, never for a run-down breakfast joint. Won' t EVER return there.

Very clean and neat local restaurant with really good food. Burgers, sandwiches, and breakfast.

“So so”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We've eaten breakfast here a few times and on this occasion we remembered why it's not top on our list. The food was ok. I had the veggie omelette and my husband had one biscuit with gravy, sausage and two eggs. Evidently his was much faster to prepare because it was delivered five minutes before mine without a comment from our server that mine would be there shortly. Being a gentleman, he didn't want to eat until mine arrived. With two other tables occupied at the time I don't think being too busy was the reason. Service is important to us when we eat out. Sadly it was lacking here. As with other restaurants in Florence, owners need to understand that it is the locals that help them stay open when our town isn't bustling with tourists. The food is why the rating was three. The service brought the rating down.
