This place is booming, so much so that you will manage to improve your cornhole skills out front while compulsively checking your phone for a text from the hostess. It's breakfast, brunch and lunch, with fat mason jars of Bloody Marys and people zipping around to fill your pretty glazed pottery coffee cup pronto. All the "sweet temptations" (pancakes and such) are served with two eggs any style and choice of bacon, house-made sausage patties, turkey sausage, Andouille or ham. A solid choice if you're waffling is the pancake trio (wait, I meant waffling not in a breakfast-waffle sense), so you can indulge in bananas Foster, peach cobbler and mixed berry hot cakes without regrets about the road not taken. The chain's Louisiana and Southern roots are apparent if you're a careful reader: You'll find a crab cakes and fried green tomato combo served with a pleasantly light spinach salad and a very solid chicken and waffles, a dish of battered tenders and waffle wedges with a side of must-keep-dipping chipotle honey. Hours: 7 a.m.-2 p.m. daily, closed Christmas, Thanksgiving.
