    Everything about this place is good. Love that their foods are fresh, local, organic, and most of all delicious. The biscuits and fresh squeezed orange juice are the best! The coffee is excellent too.

    This place did a great job giving the atmosphere of an old diner. Chicken fried steak is awesome. Not a far walk from the downtown shops and the blue hole park.

    A little disappointed they couldn't get eggs over easy right. Also did not bring me the OJ I ordered with my breakfast. When paying 10 bucks for 2 eggs you would hope it was done right.

    Little pricey but doable. Pancakes are good. King ranch casserole was amazing. If it is your first visit you get a free piece of pie. We'd do it again. Service is a little slow. Monument pie AMAZING!

    NEVER arrive after 7pm on Friday night as the staff is fully phoning it in and the quality drops SIGNIFICANTLY. Overpriced with bad service on May 2nd 2014. Will never return.

    This cafe is the worst-kept secret in Georgetown. Near downtown Georgetown, it is always humming. Enjoy the biscuits they bring out, and try the liver-and-onions or turkey sandwich.

    Important to note: The "Veggie Fries" are dredged in rice flour, so if you're on a low or slow carb diet... These are probably not for you. (They're really good though.)
