Like the decor, the food is simple, local & delish! Try the fried chicken n waffles, biscuits & gravy AND gourmet sorbet!

This place managed to make a difficult group of four very happy when we stopped for Saturday brunch after visiting the flea market. The chicken and waffles were delicious. Crispy Chicken and crispy waffles. Both had great flavor even without the added gravy and syrup....More

We enjoyed our breakfast at The General Greene. The doughnuts and waffles with Nutella were hits with the girls and we enjoyed tasty eggs and drinks. Service was attentive.

I have never done lunch or dinner here, just brunch, but they are good. I will have to try dinner or lunch here some time. I had plane fired eggs with bacon and as I write, I think they forgot to give me my bacon.
