This place reminds me of the local hole-in-the-wall cafeteria where I could get grits, eggs a meat and bread for under $4. All the southern staples are here. No frills or "locally sourced" riff-raff. The food is good, hardy and consistent. Sue and her husband are great personable folks who seem to know how to keep the working folk fed. I like to come here before work (because they're actually open before 7 am). Definitely a good southern meat-and-potatoes joint that will fill you up to start your day right!

Another hidden gem in Durham. Great southern style breakfast made fresh, by an excellent staff. After two visits or so they even start to remember your order and how you like your food cooked. Nothing fancy or updated as far as store design, but has the Sunday breakfast at Grandma's house feel. Plus the reasonable price will keep you coming back.

If you are looking for fancy go the other direction..but if you are looking for the closest thing to a quick at home/cafeteria style breakfast you are at the right place, leas than $5 a plate😃. Nostalgic i would say..good to see an old school business still around..when im in the area i will always stop through.

It's nothing like it used to be... It used to feel like gone when you walked thru the door. Not so now...😥

Always enjoyed this place as a child, made sure to stop by while in town. Food still tastes the same and great 20 years later.

My second time visited, but first time eating here, the cook was outstanding. To have the skills she has and at her age. Wow, it's been about a week now since I've had a Salmon Pattie, grits w/ cheese, scramble eggs fried hard, toast and coffee. Yum, yum I think I'll pop in tomorrow. Try it for yourself but just be prepared to wait a little, the line can sometimes wrapped around the building. Hold on let me school you on parking, if you're looking at the building please park on the right side of the building. We don't need to have your vehicle towed, if you park on the left side. Also they closed at 2.pm, Enjoy!

We have been going here for the last 34 years. Through several different owners and we keep coming back. Simple menu, great southern food for breakfast. Prices fair and reasonable and I love supporting a local place.

This is the premiere breakfast place in Durham. The price is right and the quality of the food exceeds expectations. It doesn't look like much but you'll be glad you stoped in. Try the salmon patties, thank me later

I have been going to currents since I was a child. Same owners,same cook same lemonade. However in the recent year or two there are new owners, and I noticed 9/21 a new cook,new wait staff. The food just didn't have the love. I hope the old cook is ok I looked forward to seeing her although I never knew her name...but she was certainly the glue.
