This shop has been immensely popular since it first opened. Food is excellent; however, seating is limited, and you should expect a long line. As the title indicates, my wife and I got there at a time when there was no line (rare). The food is excellent. As vegetarians, there were several items from which to select. The biscuits on...

Lines often run out the door of this tiny eatery, which has maybe 5 tables inside and some outdoor seating. But there's a reason - it's delicious! The titled Sweet Potato Biscuits are fresh, flaky and wonderful, and the stuffing, whichever delectable overstuffed sandwich you choose, is mouth watering. Try the fresh made sodas too.

Stopped in here for brunch while visiting my Navy daughter. What a great place! I had a perfectly fried chicken breast topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, and homemade sausage gravy on a Sweet Potato biscuit! Unbelievably good food from this tiny little restaurant. I can't express how delicious it was.

With lines out the door and only about four tables inside, if it's not good weather, either dress warm or get your gourmet biscuits to go, but there's plenty of picnic table room to share outside. It's dog friendly out there too and they have a bowl so you can water Fido while you salivate over your breakfast. These biscuits... More

There was a line out the door. Waited an hour in line to order. Once we ordered food came out 5 mins later. So delicious.

We stopped by for an afternoon snack and were surprised by the selection of sandwhiches. Multiple sandwhiches sounded interesting and it took a while to settle on what to order. We were not disappointed, both were very tasty. It's a very small place with limited indoor seating. There is an area for outdoor seating with picnic tables. They have a... More

Food is great! But having most everything on their sweet potato biscuit (which is awesome!) is limiting for the menu. Despite this, there is a lot to choose from, and it's all good! Very little inside seating; lots of business is to-go.
