This was such a cute spot for brunch! I ordered the special which was a version of the banana brûlée French toast but with peaches. It was fresh peaches on top and helped cut down the sweetness of the syrup. The chicken and waffles was amazing with the pepper jelly on the side.

Great place for brunch! Their Bloody Mary was TO DIE FOR. Seriously, best bloody I've ever had.
