It's been an Overtown institution, at one address or another, since 1946. The current incarnation is a spiffy 100-plus-seat room that serves soulful breakfast and lunch (dinner service is coming soon). Coffee-drinking diners are started with an insulated urn of fresh brew that gets placed upon the table. The menu contains à la carte dishes (oatmeal, waffles, and so forth), but most breakfasts consist of some combo - either pancakes or French toast with choice of protein; or eggs-any-style with grits or homefries, biscuits or toast, and choice of protein. It would be crazy, perhaps criminal, to choose toast over two square, homemade biscuits with a floury crust and moistly crumbed interior. The selection of protein - while including the usual sides of ham, bacon, or sausage - likewise encompasses meaty main-course foods such as steak, chicken wings, pork chops, liver and onions, and fried catfish (historically a Jackson Soul Food specialty). Prices range from $2.25 for an egg sandwich to between $5 and $8 for most other items. Check out the fish boil and grits Friday through Sunday. Service is coffee-shop crisp and friendly.
