Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Was excited to go hear and have breakfast based on reviews. Got here and the people that worked here were not friendly at all. I had the rice and eggs. Grabbed it to go because there was a guy that kept pacing back and forth acting very strangely. He made me nervous. The food was great! No cokes, tea, etc... Breakfast is laid out like a deli at the supermarket and you pick what you want and they place it all in one small container on top of each other like a breakfast bowl.

Not much to look at but don't be afraid. What you find inside is worth the trip!
We had jelly filled, apple fritter, glazed, and cake but the buttermilk stole the show! The lightly glazed balls of deliciousness melt in your mouth. Mr. Henry can make some donuts!

The best donuts in the state, I love the cake glazed. But everyone else loves the buttermilk drops. But you have to go early!! They sell out quick, plus the owner/baker, Dwight Henry, was in the movie Beast of the Southern Wild. I have never eaten at this place, I strictly buy the donuts!!!

If you like fresh, homemade donuts, you will love stopping by for some here. The buttermilk drops are very yummy! It really is a place to take out rather than dine in. Worth the drive!

Went there on the Tuesday after the Academy Awards and were hoping on seeing Dwight Henry and having some Buttermilk Drops. I was not disappointed on either point. The owner is very friendly but the Drops are the star attraction. We stayed downtown but it was well worth the trip.
