At the counter just as we were about to pay - they brought out fresh donuts!!! They do pride themselves on their homemade bakery items - so I had to try them! They had powdered sugar & regular sugar - I went for one of the regular. At only 50 cents each - I couldn't resist.
Larry of course had biscuits and gravy along with bacon and toast. The b&g - thumbs down. The gravy has a unique flavor that I can't pin down but it's awfully thick. The biscuits are a bit doughy (homemade). The bacon was cooked very well and the toast is HUGE! We easily shared that...
I got the Country Breakfast ($6.95) with eggs, grits, b&g and sausage. I'm not a grits fan - but I tried. They are heavily buttered - I tried a little sugar (Larry's reco) - nope didn't like that. Then I tried them with a little salt - it was better than the sugar but I still just set them aside. That's not saying their grits are bad - it's just a texture thing for me. The sausage patties are pretty fatty - which also means tasty!
Our meal came to about $17. We sat up by the front and also noticed lots of fresh herbs growing in the front window - which is nice and makes me think they use them in the cooking.
They're really just biscuits with the centers cut out and then deep fried and covered in cinnamon/sugar. But the simplicity of it is just fine by me because it was delicious!
Why Should You Go? Because we weren't too impressed by the biscuits and gravy - we likely won't come back for breakfast. That said - I saw someone else's pancakes and they looked AMAZING! So if you can eat eggs - go there for breakfast! I do think we'll try them again for lunch or dinner sometime. The staff is very friendly - our food came VERY quickly and was exactly what we ordered. I think speed of attending to people waiting to be seated or waiting to pay might be an issue if they're busy - but they'll get that under control the longer they're open. So far...so good.
