  • For a dip into nostalgia, order the Cap'n Crunch shake and channel your inner cartoon character.
  • They serve up organic milkshakes - the Chocolate-Dipped Bacon is a favorite.
  • The #duckgravy is delicious!
  • Try the fried green tomato Benedict if you want to put some South in your mouth: breaded tomatoes topped with poached eggs, arugula, sundried tomato vinaigrette and Hollandaise.
  • Fried green tomato fries. Mmmmmm.
  • Go for the Deep South Benedict: "The potato casserole that comes alongside is worth the price of admission."
  • Smoked Colorado Buffalo Hash topped with Two battered Eggs fried Golden, roasted Fresno Chili Hollandaise, served with Freshly Baked Cornbread. Fantastic highly recommended
  • Best biscuits and gravy in Denver! Southern style benedict is a must.
  • Really busy here Saturday breakfast. There was a one hour wait ended up going somewhere else
  • The SHAKES are to die for! Butterfinger and Strawberry Shortcake-with real cake in every sip!
  • Fried chicken, Mac n cheese, and server Katie are winners!!
  • Order the Fried Chicken and try it with our new Hot Sauce made from local peppers.
  • Second tip of the day; order the banana walnut cake. Yumm. Pecan pie is one of the best I've had. Order it naked and be happy. :)
  • Ask for warm candy apple jelly with the fried chicken.
  • Frie Chicken is amazing! You also have to try the deep south benedict.
  • Get here early for brunch on the weekends as it gets crowded fast! The biscuits and gravy are everything.
  • Absolutely outstanding, top 2 places Ive eaten in Denver. Southern comfort food and everything we had was great. Super helpful proactive and professional staff as well
  • Heres my list of everything bad here:
  • Everything is good here! Stop in and find out. Glad to see coconut milk added to the menu for a Lattes.
  • Great little brunch spot in the Highlands. Try and snag a table outside and order a flight of mimosas.
