Cary St. Cafe is Now Open for Breakfast

Cary St. Café, (located at 2631 W. Cary St.), is now open for early morning breakfast – starting at 8am, Monday thru Friday. It’s a mother/daughter team with the longtime owner, Robyn Chandler doing the cooking and her daughter, Indigo Chandler, working the front of the house. The menu consists of house made sausage gravy and biscuits, chocolate chip and blueberry pancakes, omelets, huevos rancheros and much more. And no decent breakfast venue in the south would be complete without offering grits on the menu! Cary St. Café also carries premium coffee from Rostov’s and prints a daily crossword for those who like to get their day started with a good brain-teasing puzzle.
