  • Very accommodating to our infant. Food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits which while not quite like what I had in the South, was still delicious. My wife has a seafood crepe which was a great balance of sweet and savory. The drinks were good as well though a little weak.
  • I go here whenever I get a chance. The food is AMAZING and for sure worth the price. The staff is always super nice and cheery. Their drinks are also damn good.
  • Fantastic staff, and fantastic food. The employees absolutely care for their customers - even on the busiest of days. I highly recommend this place (and their French toast).
  • Went there today & this is the first time I've ever commented on a restaurant. Sat upstairs at a sunny table for two and I had the lobster eggs benedict. Incredible sauce and presentation. The staff was very pleasant and the woman who I believe is the owner started off the conversation with "Bloody Mary? Mimosa? Some happiness?" really captivated us because we felt she truly wanted to be there. She called everyone sweetie or honey and made people feel like they were amongst friends. One of our new favorite places in Portsmouth!
  • I felt the need to write a review given that there have not been many recent reviews of this restaurant. I can only speak to the brunch menu, service, and staff, but it was all great! We were looking for a place downtown for breakfast and many had lines to even get a table, on a Wednesday morning. Michelle's menu and atmosphere looked inviting so we went in. Our server was great. Very friendly and helpful, although it did take a while to get a cup of coffee. But after that things only got better. The food was fresh, deliciously prepared, and full portions! Water and coffee were refilled, and as more diners arrived the atmosphere became lively and fun, on a Wednesday morning! I would definitely go back...
