You may experience a bit of nostalgia for your grandmother’s dining room at this cafeteria-style Morgan Park spot, which features checkered tablecloths and shelves full of vintage country bricabrac. The menu's full of Southern comfort cuisine--all at very reasonable price points--and includes breakfast favorites such as eggs, pancakes and sandwiches like turkey bacon on a biscuit. On Sundays the restaurant is alive with families and food, with folks gathering for daily specials such as fried chicken, turkey wings and pot roast entrees accompanied by sides such as mac 'n’ cheese, greens and red beans. Southern faves such as peach cobbler and banana pudding cap things off. Don’t miss the live jazz and blues on the first Friday of every month.
