Restaurant downstairs with a gift shop up top. Lot's of things to catch your attention in a former Piggly Wiggly. Had the shrimp and grits. Tasty dish but the grits were just above cold.

The food is Southern, the staff is upbeat, the decor is arty and supports the local community. The shrimp and grits are (is?) heavenly. I wish I would order something else, but I can't pass up an opportunity to enjoy this blissful dish.
