Old Towners head to this restored 19th-century firehouse for
such fare as Southern eggs Benedict with fried green tomatoes and a
smattering of jalapeños or Belgian waffles served with fried chicken or
rich fruit compote and chantilly cream. If you’re in the mood for seafood,
go for Chesapeake Bay oysters—on the half shell or deep-fried and piled in
a po’ boy. Kid-friendly and comfortable, this is a relaxing place to while
away a lazy morning with the neighborhood crowd. Saturday and Sunday 11 to
3.
