    Vegetarians, breathe easy. SO MANY meat-free options here!
  • Marie J.
    These were hands down the best pancakes I've had in my entire life. And I eat a lot of pancakes. The yogurt and service was subpar, but the pancakes completely made up for it. Get the pancakes.

    The wait was long & it was raining ☔️ however, 👶,the 🥞 with caramelize banana 🍌 on the side sweet authentic flavor kick to my 🥞. I also loved ❤️ the vegetarian 🌶 tofu 👏🏿!

    Great for vegans with meat eating friends. Maybe you could get them to try a bite of cruelty free food! 😊

    Fresh blueberry and raspberry jam, that aren't too sweet. They let the fruit do the flavoring

    Grits were like church; heavenly. Breakfast burrito was like a David Lynch movie; dreamy with lots of layers. Bacon was like a comet; out of this world. 👍

    Authentic & delicious food! I'd recommend splitting a few things with a friend to taste a little bit of what they offer. Some faves are the shrimp & grits & buttermilk pancakes w/ caramelized bananas!

    It's a good idea to share the banana pancakes with the table since they are so sweet - but Def get them. Burrito is fantastic. The brisket should be listed as a lunch item, good but not breakfast.

    The brisket bowl with eggs over medium is an amazing breakfast. It would make a great hangover cure.

    Longest wait ever to get our food. Nothing special about the pancakes themselves. The syrup they put on top was really good, though. Probably won't return, but if I do I'll get takeout.

    So inconvenient but perfect. The parking lot is small, full and horrible. There is a gorgeous patio but little seating. Long waiting list and lots of people. But the food is totally worth it.

    Really enjoyed the buttermilk pancakes and especially liked the skillet potatoes. Will definitely be back to try more of the menu. Place is small so may not be the best option for large groups.

    Ok, we know everyone (NY Times included), says ‘go for the pancakes!’ but for us, it’s all about the brisket bowl. They slow roast beef for 14 hours and shred it in a spicy broth with a poached egg. Read more

    The pancakes, bacon and biscuits. The syrup is not on the side for the banana pancakes. It is on the side for the other ways to order pancakes. They do not take AmEx even though the details says so.
