Top Review: “I can’t pick a single item that was my favorite because every single dish was mouthwatering delicious. The food is the absolute best breakfast/ brunch in the area, 10 times out of 10 this place is the best!!! The portions are huge, and will have multiple meals out of the food you order. We ordered the smoked fish spread as an appetizer for brunch and it was perfect for everyone.The interior is so nice and makes you feel upscale, but chic and edgy. The have blue books everywhere that were all donated from people at the hospital and you can take a book and bring it back! Even though most of them are medical books. If you want a brunch or breakfast, you have to come here!!! Sure it’s a bit pricy, but it’s worth every single penny you spend. I will keep saving up to go back.”Kathryn M.

Review: “We loved the food, the service, and the breezy Gulfport vibe!! We had the vegetarian crepe (savory, balanced, and delicious!) and the chorizo skillet (yummy, impressive amount of food, and not at all greasy like chorizo dishes often are elsewhere). We brought our dog with us and he very much enjoyed a cool shady spot and a big bowl of ice water our server brought him with so much love! We’ll be back.”Sarah N.
