    I usually come on Saturday for the French toast specials. They always use fresh fruit, not the kind in the clingy syrup, and it's so yummy. Open Saturday and Sunday now.

    Come early for Saturday's breakfast. Special items on the menu include the famous blueberry buckwheat pancakes and the eggs Benedict with fried green tomatoes. But bring cash!

    The French toast special is always delicious. The French toast is topped with fresh fruit from the market vendors.

    They serve the BEST breakfast on Saturdays until noon. Try the bluebucks (blueberry buckwheat pancakes) or crab cakes Benedict!

    Get here early on Sat. morning for the 'Bluebucks' & have cash. During the week, try the 'Brick'. For the displaced Southerner - their fried green tomatoes are almost as good as home's.

    If in season, get the oysters. Fried perfect, just enough salt in the batter. Awesome.

    If you like attitude with your food, this is the place. I think Mom called ahead to make sure they gave me a hard time.

    The bluebuck pancakes that everyone raves about aren't good at all. Go to Bubby's in NYC if you want real pancakes.

    The cashier/order taker was very rude. Stared at me when I tried to order. Not a smile. Not a "can I help you" When I asked for pancakes, she told me in a very unfriendly way no breakfast after 11:00
