  • Crunchie iiiice
  • If you come on a Saturday morning hungry, don't expect to get you food in a timely manner. Good food though
  • Make sure you get the pancakes and home fries...!
  • Get the Pancake Special or the French Toast Special. Best breakfast around for $8.50
  • Amazing pancakes!
  • No meal is complete without the house biscuits, served with most entrees. And for a true soul food experience, order a side of the creamy grits with your pork chop or salmon cakes.
  • Lots of celebrities have eaten here. Ludacris Denzel Washington Judge Mathis jasmine guy Lena Horne just to name a few
  • They serve the best fried catfish I've ever had. And I love their okra and tomatoes. Massive portions, too. Go at 3, after the lunch rush.
  • Best practice: put the apples on the pancake
  • veggie sausage FTW!
  • The best Breakfast food.
  • Best breakfast in Washington. French toast is especially excellent. Home fries have peppers and onions in them, which was the only disappointment
  • Classic greasy spoon with tons of history
  • You can't go wrong here. Heaven on a plate.
  • They have veggie sausage, that makes me very happy!
  • Damn good ice tea. Taste so good make you wanna slap your mama. Best southern ice tea on DC. Like grandma use to make.
  • FYI - There are closed on Mondays...
  • Baked chicken with cornbread dressing, collards, baked mac n cheese and sweet tea -- good gosh almighty!
  • Overpriced and especially greasy diner food. Nice staff though.
  • The hours can be more than a little erratic but if you're lucky enough to find yourself seated at this DC institution, you're in for a treat. Throw a dart at the menu and no matter where it lands, yo
