    Some of the best breakfast I had on my visit to ATL!!! Expect a wait though, no matter what day...but they turn over quickly. You won't go wrong with whatever you order! Breakfast Bowl is awesome!

    Great breakfast and brunch food. Every egg dish is great and there's even great vegetarian food for those who don't eat meat. Get an omelette with some greens and you'll be fully satisfied.

    The shrimp and grits are a thing of beauty. I really enjoyed the garlicky salad dressing that they served on their greens. And those damn biscuits are fabulous. Glad they wrote a cookbook!

    The trending taste this week is a Southern favorite: grits. Creamy and cheese-filled, they've been described as "dreamy" and "the bomb dot com!" You do not want to miss them.

    I think they sprinkle crack in their grits bc I'm ADDICTED! I also always ask for an extra to-go dish of apple butter. <whispers> I take it home to use on my bagels. SO GOOD!!

    The cheese grits and homemade corn beef hash is out of this world. They need to sell a cookbook. Always pleased when I go. It's always packed/tight but you still get the customer service.

    the cheese grits are delicious. The oatmeal pancake w/peach compote too. But the grits are why i come here. The coffee is not so good. If you want to sample a little of everythin get the high flyer. C
