Their shabby chic décor resembled the kitchen and dining room of a famous Southern chef with cookbooks and pickled vegetables on steel bakers rack. The tables and booths were simple and streamline wooden tables with earth tones surrounding. The bar area is well stocked and visible for all to see and drool over.

The menu isn’t lengthy, but has a lot to offer. From coffee drinks, morning cocktails, to house made sodas; finding the perfect drink to pair with your breakfast is bound to happen! The fare varies from the sweet side to the more savory side. Coffee ($4) and water at the table was an easy way to sway the palette into making an entree decision.

“Drag through the Garden” ($10) was a veggie omelet that showcased roasted seasonal vegetable, spinach and white cheddar cheese. It also came with a side (grits) and bread (grilled buttered ciabatta) with seasonal preserves. The omelet was light and flavored just right. The ciabatta and preserves was a nice crunch addition. The grits were creamy and delicious and became a fast favorite. “Founding Farmers Breakfast with Bacon” ($9) came with apple wood smoked bacon a side shredded leek potatoes hash browns and bread preference with seasonal preserves. The eggs were fluffy and filling and the leek hash browns added depth and dimension to the already sizeable plate.

Service was pleasant and the management made sure to go around from table to table to check on patrons and answer any questions they may have.

Founding Farmers is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious and affordable breakfast. Who can have a bad day after such a great breakfast, plus, they don’t call breakfast the most important meal of the day for nothing, and Founding Farmers makes sure to give that to their patrons.
