    Breakfast or lunch, the Fried Green Tomatoes are the way to go. Perfect batter tops the succulent tomatoes- plus the most addictive sauce ever.

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

    Inspectors closed Market Lunch at Eastern Market citing 5 violations including rodent droppings on the floor in the food prep area. It passed re-inspection and reopened.

    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!

    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.

    Try the fried green tomatoes with the pink sauce. They are delicious!

    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.

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

    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.
