There are a number of Southern-style dishes on offer at this narrow breakfast spot off Bedford Avenue, like biscuits and gravy or organic grits and eggs, which diners supplement with tasty sides like candied bacon or Col. Bill Newsom's "absolutely delicious" country ham. Lunch and dinner bring savory fare like fried chicken or a grilled-cheese sandwich made with organic bread. Although the place is filled with hipsters from the neighborhood, it also attracts visitors from the other side of the river. As one Manhattan-based reviewer told us, "It's worth making a trip over the Williamsburg Bridge" to eat here.
