        I'm partial to their muffins, sandwich of egg/tomato jam/biscuit (add on bacon), blueberry pancakes, and often they have daily specials that are variants on the breakfast sandwich and/or eggs benedict. I had an amazing crawfish benedict a while back. They do a decent burger, to, and a rotating cast of po' boy sandwiches. I would skip the waffle if it's on the specials list.

        definitely "brunch" meaning any time between 9am until 4pm... for breakfast hehe. Their banana walnut pancakes are AMAZING. Also their biscuits and raspberry jam!

        I went there last weekend for brunch and the blueberry pancakes were quite good and the chorizo and biscuits were pretty good as well. The bacon, however, was not too my liking. Maybe I got a bad batch or something but it was hard, dry and almost burned/burned in some places.

          Last week there was a Bobby Flay throwdown with their Blueberry Pancakes. They are know for them and for their biscuits.
