“Interesting situation made right!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I arrived around 8:45, were given a number and told "don't worry, it won't be too long!" She then asked the number she was calling out if they would be willing to share a table with another couple waiting...oookkkkaaayyyy, that's a pretty cool way to get to know some strangers... they said okay and were seated. Two minutes later we were seated, alone (guess the people before us wanted to be alone.lol). Anyway, a waitress took our drink order and brought it back immediately. We soon ordered our food. Another couple was seated in front of us. The place was PACKED and suuuuuper busy by this time. 4 waitresses rushing here and there!!! Crazy diner mayhem. .. my husband and I are very laid back people so as we're chatting away about our kiddos the couple in front of us gets served before us. No biggie, but their food looked suprisingly similar to what we ordered. We wait and wait and wait and drink tea and finally realoze that couple DID get our food!!! Oopsie! The waitress appologizes like crazy, we get our food and its PERFECT!! Super delish too!! At the time to pay, the owner cuts our bill IN HALF due to the crazy mixup! Great customer service, great food, slightly pricy, but an all around interesting experience. We plan on returning with the kids next time to test them again. ;)

“Southern Breakfast Like Grandma Used to Make”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Delicious South Breakfast with big portions and a very affordable price. There was a wide variety to choose from, making it that much harder to make a choice! Be prepared to wait for a table, as there is always a crowd, but it is well worth the wait. Friendly and attentive staff. Guaranteed to be a breakfast just like Grandma used to make, including juice in a Mason jar!

“Always great!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Other than you can not tip on your credit card, this place is a perfect place for breakfast or lunch. Country cooking without a lot of noise. The seating is not as tight as some of the others around town. Parking is easy on the north end of central.

Absolutely delicious food...and affordable! Plus, they had meatless options that were worth the order. When the waitress came for our order, we basically pointed to a random dish and were not dissapointed. Very friendly staff. Great variety on the menu! The only thing is that you have to walk through the kitchen to get to the restroom...but the kitchen was clean!

“Very nice place”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The food and service at this small restaurant was great. We had breakfast, although I felt the portions were small for the price we paid, we still enjoyed it. It was cozy, charming and had the feel of an old time café. The waitress's kept our glasses and cups full, food tasted almost as good as Grandma's. The only thing I found strange and thought was against health code was that as a patron you walk right through the kitchen where the food is being prepared to go into the restroom. I'm glad I saw that after I ate or I might not have wanted to order, who knows what kind of germs others could be bringing into the kitchen before and after they attend the restroom.
