It’s not just the coffee (caffeine) that gets me coming back, but the aforementioned homemade breakfast as well. Checkout the Fast 45 Breakfast. Scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, a biscuit and grits.

You actually have a choice of grits or home fried potatoes. I wound up saying both and doing a taste test of sorts. Which would you prefer?

Based on what I ordered on my most recent stop there, you can guess my answer. 🙂 I did the Build A Breakfast getting home fried potatoes, sunny-side up eggs and a biscuit. Delicious! The customer service is always friendly and attentive.
