Their food is the worst in the country. For breakfast they served me rotten meat the grits was not cooked all they way and the eggs were just horrible. I did not pay them neither I just walked and never returned to that place again....More

Just stopped by for coffees and a lite bite. Staff were welcoming in this old fashioned basic place with its wooden tables, counter and bench seating that looked and felt like church pews. Pricing was noticeably cheap
