    Nice light inside and a back patio to sit when it's warm. Southern Should food and a chill atmosphere. Good alternative to the All The New Fancy Places™. And, it's been there for over 10 years.

    Their salmon benedict with spinach is absolutely delicious! Especially since they use their homemade biscuits.
