Top Review: “We drove through Savannah on our ay to North Carolina. We just googled a breakfast place and this popped up. The vibe inside was very nice and the waiters and waitresses were very attentive. We noticed business men and women on their laptops while enjoying breakfast. My husband even opened his up for a few to take care of a few emails. I think it’s great they can do that. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and the ambiance there. We highly recommend.” – PJ L.

Top Review: “I loved it. It’s small, but so cute. And it doesn’t need to be big to be AWESOME! There is a small seating area inside that is cozy. The aroma in this case is amazing seriously. You can smell the breakfast sandwiches being made and it’s just heavenly. We got two breakfast sandwiches in butter croissants, a peanut butter and jelly croissants, banana and Nutella croissant, and two macarons. Everything was great. My favorite was the breakfast sandwich. I don’t know what they do to those eggs but they are some of the best I’ve EVER had. And I’m not exaggerating. My boyfriend LOVED his peanut butter and jelly croissant. He wanted to leave with the flavor of it in his mouth lol. Didn’t even drink anything after he ate it. Go here. Don’t even debate it. You’ll love it.” – Christina N.

Top Review: “Friendly staff and delicious food. I enjoyed the crab cake eggs Benedict at the counter and I got the sticky pecan bun to go and it was delicious and tasted fresh even though I ate it the next day. Fun fact: A local who was getting take out told me that Clary’s Cafe was in the movie based on the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. She also gave me the inside tip that I should ask to sit at the counter since the counter has faster turnover and guarantees a seat especially if you are a party of one. Clary’s is yummy, belly full food that makes you feel nourished, loved and content. Thank you Clarys!” – Kristen L.

Top Review: “Oh my goodness. The J.P. Deluxe was heavenly deliciousness. I’m all about a good breakfast/brunch spot. I prefer places with a mimosa; however, we were driving for home, so staying sober was the smarter choice. When I tell you I thought about finishing the leftover waffle the entire drive home, it drove me crazy. I didn’t have a utensil and had considered using the plastic lid. Highly recommend. Would go again.” – Heather W.

A true Southern biscuit and all the toppings are perfect with the chicken.
