Stuck as we are in the Midwest, Southern staples such as real grits and biscuits can be hard to come by. But this homegrown mini chain has made it its mission to bring “mornin’ hon” hospitality to the heartland. The brunch is often touted as the city’s best, and while we’re definitely not willing to go that far, we can get down with the plate-size fruit pancakes and savory corn cakes (try the latter with some hot sauce), the dense corn muffins, buttery biscuits and spicy andouille chicken sausage.

The food here is okay. Probably not worth going here when there are other much better restaurants in the area. 


Good food...Check, Kids friendly...Check, and I didn't leave broke! I wish they had more stars. From the service to the environment to the food, we treated fantastically. The only thing that they missed the mark was that I didn't crawfish for me that day... But the shrimp and grits hit the spot!
