    Frittata was great, cheesy grits excellent, and the array of bacon is stupendous. Even the chai was tasty.

    The black bear was delicious. Also southern comfort was great if you are looking for a stick to your ribs meal or bring a friend and split with one of their lighter options.

    Bakin' & Eggs is a great spot to shake it up when it comes to bacon. They have five different kinds on their menu: maple pepper, jalapeño, honey, cherry smoked, and mesquite. Try one or try 'em all. Read more

    The Oatmeal latte was delicious. I highly recommend the chorizo frittata with apple chicken sausage. The cheese grits were a disappointment and the honey bacon didn't really have a honey taste.

    It’s hard to go wrong with bacon, whether in a flight (five strips each coated with a different glaze) or in a creamy potato soup. Little brunch-lovers eat free on Thursdays with adult entrees. Read more
