4 out of 5 stars
This restaurant is attached to the lobby of the General Francis Marion, a restored 1920’s hotel. Lacking really any other options where we could find an omelette close by, we ate here, in what turned out to be the chef’s first experience making an egg white omelet! Again the stereotype about Southerners’ unhealthy eating habits rings true. In any case, the first attempt was a good one and Glen was satisfied with his asiago, onion and tomato concoction from the create your own omelet section. I went for fried green tomatoes with a sausage patty, eggs and toast, which were delightful. The whole wheat bread (hey hey had that, at least!) was freshly baked and scrumptious and the sausage and tomatoes felt very special and southern to me, though I am far from an expert on FGT’s.
Keep in mind this is probably the priciest meal you’ll find in this tiny town, but the breakfast lived up to expectations. Service on the other hand was slow as molasses. And there were only two other guests in the place!
