    You must order the biscuit and gravy or hash (add brisket). Seriously both are phenomenal. If you're in the mood for booze, all the cocktails are tasty!

    Here's what you do. Order one single bread pudding pancake to share & then order anything else you want. But you should know the Bruschetta was amazing.

    The chorizo and eggs is amazing! Brisket and Gravy (pic) is good comfort food but the biscuits are pretty tough. Split a grown up pop tart too start.. You won't be disappointed :)

    Grilled Brie Sandwich at Southport Grocery is rightfully called "a grown up version of a grilled cheese" with a layer of gooey brie, fresh spinach and a delicious mess of sauteed mushrooms.

    What a great find! I started off with the hummus, apple salad, and ended with a single cupcake pancake. I absolutely loved everything. Seating is limited, weekends you will definitely have to wait.

    'Kraut fans, take note: This market and cafe has recently started making sauerkraut in house, and it's stellar. Take a jar of the "Living Kraut" home, or try it on a Reuben with house-made pastrami. Read more
