I have eaten several times at this bright breakfast spot since it opened in April 2017. It’s really popular, as evidenced by their parking lot. I no longer even bother trying to find a spot and choose instead to park in the neighborhood across Moberly Lane. It’s good exercise to play chicken trying to cross this very busy road.
The popularity is logical: There are not many restaurants appealing to an upscale crowd in the breakfast space. Most of the other options are either fast food (Chick-Fil-A), fast casual (Panera), or tried and true waffle/pancake restaurants (Denny’s, IHOP, Village Inn).
During my last visit, I ordered the Biscuit, Eggs, Potatoes, and Meat, which at $10 is expected for a large breakfast. The choices for meat are several, of which I had the slightly less indulgent chicken sausage. The menu-described “house cut, herb seasoned baby red skin potatoes” are as delicious as they sound. They offer several custom spreads, including the honey butter pictured here. I’ve also had the Biscuits and Gravy, served with Eggs and Potatoes for $10. It’s a really tough decision between these two dishes, sort of a Mason-Dixon line northern/southern decision.
The coffee is a bit pricey, at $3 for a bottomless cup, but it’s a house blend from Onyx Coffee Lab. As a special Monday-Friday limited time promotion, it’s free if you show your server that you’ve liked and shared their Facebook posting mentioning this.
The only downside I can mention is to reiterate that the extreme popularity of this place means you’ll almost always have to wait a little, and possibly a lot, if you go during a peak time. To help with that, the restaurant uses a wait time indicator on their Yelp page. I can’t vouch for its accuracy, but I give them kudos for trying to this.
