“Great made from scratch home style breakfast and lunch! Try a local favorite Creme Brûlée French Toast or the Biscuits and Gravy. From the hashes to the sandwiches, you can’t go wrong. Did I mention you can get a mimosa?! Be be prepared to wait, and keep in mind they are closed Monday and Tuesday. ”
