To my knowledge, this is the first business in Charlotte renamed to reflect its proximity to one of the two most controversial public works projects in the history of Charlotte, our increasingly infamous and still not completed South Corridor Lightrail System. You should not go to this restaurant looking for sumptuous fare nor romantic atmosphere but the breakfasts are good and ample in quantity. Breakfast is the only meal that I have eaten there (which I do frequently) but I also hear good reports on their non-breakfast offerings.
On occasion the waitresses act like they could have used just a bit more rest but just overlook that and enjoy the food.

Favorite Dish: If eating breakfast, get the biscuits rather than the toast, unless you just hate biscuits. And for any British readers, I am not talking about what we call cookies which you call biscuits. For any who may not know, our biscuits are more like your scones but still distinctively different.
