A cut above your " meat & three" Small, busy, semi self service...place your order at bar and it's delivered to your table. Good Southern food with a slight upscale to it. Definetely a little cafe.

Good classic breakfast place. I'll have to try it a few more times to have a solid opinion. But lets put it this way - I've lived in this town for 3 months now and I've not rushed back to the place or craved it...More

I ordered the chicken and dumplings and it tasted like the chef dumped a pound of pepper into the pot. Barely edible. I've had other things here that were better, but nothing seems stellar.

I don't visit this restaurant as often as I would like since the east side location closed but the food is excellent. One of the best restaurants in Athens.

Five-star day mostly offers versions of soul food. I've only eaten here for breakfast, and I've never been disappointed. Their biscuits and gravy are delicious. They have some really amazing gravy. The Elvis breakfast (peanut butter and banana french toast sandwich) is also really good.
