Awesome breakfast!! Today was our first time trying this place, they've been open four weeks now. You order at the counter, the menu is short and simple. This is a farm to table establishment so expect (and receive) fresh food. My husband had the Eggs Benedict and I had the Salmon Benedict. Both came with fest fruit, strawberries and blueberries, plus hash browns the way we like them, well seasoned! The portion size of the meal was perfect. Oh, good coffee too. Next time I'll try the mimosa, it looked beautiful on the next table!

Here for dinner with our kids. Friendly service at counter. Food for our table did not come out all at once but that's not a big deal. Could use juice boxes or organic milk for kids. Food was very fresh and tasty, cool little place, will be back.

The food: pretty dang good! Our kids tried everything on the kid's menu and they were very happy! It was a very good experience! We've needed a little place like this near our neighborhood. Y'all go give them a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

We ate a quick dinner here and it was fantastic! The employees were so welcoming and informative. They made excellent suggestions and the food was perfect. We had the caprese salad to share and it was the freshest mozzarella I've ever had, delicious farm tomatoes. I had the ahi tuna tacos, but they customized them on Bibb lettuce. All so fresh and perfectly seasoned. My spouse had the burger - delicious and the salsa made it spicy. He even commented that the burger was better than his! The ambiance of the restaurant is spot on with local beers on draft, a selection of wines and margaritas! This will become a weekly destination and we can't wait to try brunch this weekend!

We tried out on Fathers Day and will definitely try again. Food was good. Chicken on the Chicken and Waffles was fairly tough but flavor was good. Everyone was friendly, flavors were good. Definitely worth another try. Seems like a great place to hang out for a meal.
