I love this scene. The green ceiling tins, the eclectic collection of mamas...(I think all the photos are of women), slightly worn furniture and the welcoming atmosphere.
Unfortunately I had just stuffed my face with a piece of delicious baked cheesecake from Chez Betty, so it wasn't mealtime. But I mentally made a note to go back and try it out another time, just so I could sit inside and absorb the interior, without really considering the price or menu. As it turns out, it serves Southern soul food at reasonable prices, and it has great reviews.
