  • Classy food and family friendly
  • Not on the menu, but yummy and they'll make on request: Buffalo chicken sandwich. Very spicy.
  • Heirloom tomato salad & brunch!
  • Brunch is served all day on Sunday, so you can enjoy it for dinner, too.
  • Fried Brussels sprouts!
  • The curry salmon on the fall menu is amazing! Make sure to put the pepper sauce on the greens.
  • Great place if you need a reservation for a large number. Cute place, and the food is fantastic.
  • Great burgers & specials - Saturday & Sunday brunches!
  • Went for brunch, the food was not good. It used to be a great place for brunch, not anymore
  • I had the jambalaya with sausage and chicken. The chicken was tough to eat. I would recommend the Brussels Sprouts. Overall, this place was a let down.
  • Great for brunch
  • Martha is the owner and she is amazing
  • The Manhattan clam chowder is a must try!!!! I love, love, love the New England as well.
  • I thought the chicken fried steak at brunch was ok. I'd probably get something else if I ever go back.
  • The black eye pea patty was absolutely amazing! As were the dirty martini's ;)
  • Try the Pan Seared Baramundi w/Citrus Beur Blanc - Over orzo with sauteed swiss chard, zucchini & tomato
  • Try the Pan Seared Tilapia with Tomatoes and Butter Beans - Over grits and topped with sauteed garlic & greens and crisp green beans and some kind of delicious tomato sauce
  • The starter of Duck Rillettes makes my mouth water and I am getting hungry just thinking about it.
  • The Mozzarella Melt Sandwich is to die for! A lot of high quality vegetarian options.
  • Try the Root Beer Braised Pork Belly with Poached Eggs over Sauted Swiss Chard - Deee-licious
