    Great food, service, neighborhood feel. Everything was terrific hamburgers, chicken & dumplings, cheese sandwich, cappachino, key lime pie. Only negative was dirty rag smell near entrance/bar.

    Start with the cinnamon rolls and a bucket of biscuits with butter and jam. Then order anything on the brunch menu that contains the word "poached eggs" - won't disappoint.
