Top Review: “I’ve heard about DBC many times so we were excited to check it out. This location had a few different vendors inside, atomic cowboy, DBC and an adorable ice cream place to name a few. The beer list was awesome, I definitely would have ordered a beer if we were there later in the day. We decided to get a huge cinnamon bun for the table then share a couple biscuit entrees. First off, the cinnamon bun was ridiculously huge and SO delicious. We snacked on it over the course of a couple days. Our server (Camille?) was so fantastic, we commented on how great she was. She was quick and efficient and super friendly too. We got two of the biscuit sandwiches (I don’t remember the names) but they were massive and delicious as well. I’m glad I finally got to try what every has been talking about!”Kelly W.

Top Review: “What a great new breakfast joint in a great location. My husband and I came on a Friday morning we both had off work for and were happy we stumbled into finding the spot. There is ample outdoor seating and indoor seating. We chose to sit upstairs under the covered patio. It was shaded and absolutely perfect. Our server was very patient and even asked about yogurt options for my granola bowl. Which thank goodness because I’d forgot to say I wanted to sub the coconut yogurt lol! A real stomach saver I tell you. This easily will be in our rotation of breakfast date spots.”Monika B.

The mimosas helped me knockout on the car ride home and the chili woke me back up so that I could, well, make chili. The bacon was definitely my favorite part of the meal so much so that I ordered a bunch to go. I liked this place so much that I bought a T-shirt to rep this place on my way out but unfortunately I bought a size too small. The atmosphere is cozy and I made good memories here laughing with my family.”Micheal R.
