    I had the pancake w/ bacon and water to drink. The pancake was cold. 3 strips of regular, fatty bacon and cold syrup. I don't think, no, I know I will not be back! You guys missed the mark on this one

    Is that a hotcake? I can't see my plate! The hotcake recipe is based on Grandma's pound cake recipe with buttermilk added. So good you better plan a long nap or a serious trail hike after eating one!

    Fresh, homemade biscuits. The gravy is a bit salty; but good and chunky bits of sausage come along with it. Amazing and super friendly wait staff. I'll be back for lunch next time in Raleigh.
