    The duck breast with collards and sweet potato purée was divine. Clientele is a little old though.

    Lunch options not very varied or healthy. Food tastes good though!

    Everything was hyper salted; it's the first time in as long as I can remember that I left a meal authentically let down. Expectations not met.

    Hash brown was burnt and omelette was not good.

    Amazing brunch. Nothing spectacular in terms of menu creativity, but you can taste the freshness of the produce which makes it worth the price. Get the churros with chocolate sauce to share!

    The grits bowl, all the way, is awesome.

    Be ready to wait & ignored.

    This delightful local favorite is one of the first places I take out-of-towners. It embodies the fresh, locavore vibe that Durham prides itself on and serves up delicious “nouveau” Southern cuisine. Read more

    Trust me when I say I do NOT eat pancakes but was interested when my boyfriend got them here. They are anaaaaazing!

    Braised pork shank w/ collard greens & grits = AMAZING.

  • Nicholas B.

    Love this place for dinner. Brunch is a different issue. Rude wait staff, indifferent front of house, mediocre food. Disappointing experience in Durham for brunch.

    Nicholas Bradley · December 18, 2011
  • Liana L.

    Surprisingly inexpensive (and delicious, of course) for brunch. Long lines - get there early or make reservations, or sit by the bar.

    Liana Lau · December 5, 2011

    new menu - blood orange margarita

    Stacey Poston · September 17, 2011

    Skip the hush pups and go for the fried okra and shrimp app instead.

    Barry Ladi · July 27, 2011
  • Rich K.

    BBQ Pork and Pimento Cheese sandwich is delicious.

    Rich Kearney · May 14, 2011

    Mike Amburn · March 19, 2011
  • Erin E.

    Food was underwhelming and the bloody mary's have too much horseradish.

    Erin Ellison · February 27, 2011
