    Looks like it was under renovation or closed when we tried to visit.

    Early Girl Benny! The perfect brunch food. Eggs, grit cake (kind of like a hash brown), and spinach and tomatoes make it good for you, right!? Plus a biscuit to sop it all up with. Delish!

    It's okay but not nearly as good as Louise's in Black Mountain. That place has spoiled me when it comes to breakfast spots!

    Apple walnut salad with tempeh is way better than it sounds. Fried green tomatoes were fine, but nothing to write home about. Feels a little pricy for what it is.

    Great food. Questionable service. Had a delicious breakfast here with the Benny. Server never followed up during the meal and failed to deliver an ordered beverage as a result. Hoping it was atypical.

    The smoked bacon gravy biscuits and pumpkin short bread are amazing. And they brought out a basket of toys for my kids that kept them happy so I could actually enjoy a warm meal. Fantastic place!

    Way better than City Cafe! Large portions, original local menu mix. Try veggie Benedict, or the Porky with sweet pulled pork.

    Local sausage & potato scramble w/ smoked habanero sauce was a great combo. Best (thick) bacon ever.. However, the broccoli & cheddar hushpuppies were too oily. Mimosa didnt taste fresh squeezed :(
