The food here is good, pass on the sausage it was very dry. French toast and eggs were good and fruit is fresh. Panini was good as well. Very good hot chocolate and coffee. Nice little breakfast place but they have slow service.

We have eaten there twice. Both times the food and service were very good! Our group ordered shrimp + grits, crab cakes, a burger, chicken pizza, and a tomato pizza. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. We will be back.
