Baguettes, omelets, and croissants offer a variety with different meat, cheeses, and veggie topping options. Jack’s French Toast comes with freshly-made orange zest honey butter.

Among an array of sides from which to choose is the sweet biscuit debris consisting of powdered sugar, fried biscuit bits, and jam. It’s limited in supply, however, so get there before it’s gone! As far as drinks go, the manmosa- a pint-size version of the classic mimosa– is highly recommended.

And who can deny chicken ‘n’ waffles? The chicken is fried in buttermilk and arrives at your table atop an orange vanilla Belgian waffle with chipotle honey, whipped sweet butter, and everyone’s favorite Canadian maple syrup. Since it’s The C House, side items are referred to as “complements” and offer cheese grits, candied bacon, country sausage, chef’s breakfast potatoes, and country wheat toast.
