At the Birmingham spot, you'll find great food and wine "with humor in a fun, casual environment." The hostess station is an old white Detroit Liner stove, a 1940s model with legs and drawers. In Ferndale, you can't go wrong with the Grand Marnier French toast— a perfect blend of vanilla-soaked challa bread with toasted almonds and other ingredients. If you want a real delight, try the more-than-filling granola banana cakes. Both locations serve breakfast and lunch seven days a week and have similar menus. Hours vary slightly between the two.
