    I don't love that they press their bagels in a panini press, but their breakfast burritos are good. Also, on the weekends they serve a Mexican breakfast with black beans which is awesome!

    This is the best breakfast place in the city. The grits are to die for. Also Greye, the red headed barista makes excellent coffee.

    Get the grits. Even if you don't like them, try them anyway. I don't even like grits and I ate all of mine.

    The fruit side only consists of one piece of watermelon, one honeydew melon, and two cantaloupes.

    I got the porto. Kind of expensive for a veggie sandwich and I didnt get much potato salad, but its good.

    Not a good value for the $. Instead of pasta salad I got 6 noodles & 1 piece of broccoli and no flavor. The porto sandwich was ok. The blueberry tea was merely flavored water. Blah - wont be back.

    Stand in line. Place order. Then find a seat. When you grab 2 tables and send one person to order for 4 it messes up the sequence. Really? Do you have to be told? Dont skip the line people.
