    Chicken and waffles was the best dish. Blueberry lemon pancakes second best. Order sage gravy on the side. Very popular brunch spot. We waited 35 mins noon Saturday. Mandatory 15% tip.

    This place has legit pancakes and waffles. The portions are huge and the ambiance is old school diner, but it's still clean and the food is high quality for breakfast food. Tips included in total!

    Bubble and squeak with poached eggs or over easy. Vegetarian gravy, greens, biscuit, potato pancakes and more than enough flavor to start your day.

    Every time I come here I insist I'm going to get something different, but then I show up and order the Bubble & Squeak. If I don't, I always regret it.

    The bubble and squeek was amazing. The real surprise however was the side of sausage. Not link- patty. Spicy, meaty carmely.

    Always add sausage to the gravy. Always.

    They're trading on their name at this point. Chicken in my chicken and waffles was horrifically dry. Not even drowning it on syrup and gravy could save it.

    The coffee was great! But the food is below average. The cornbread was hard and cold and the grits were lumpy. Overated for the price save your dollars and go anywhere else

    This place used to be great and now is the epitome of MEH. Food is bland, service is hit and miss. Good for kids but not really for anyone else.
