Elizabeth's

The modest surroundings and the simple white frame building housing Elizabeth's can be quite deceptive and is no indication of the delicious food on the platter. It serves a hearty meal whether its breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. The praline bacon, Eggs Elizabeth and Redneck Eggs Benedict, which are poached eggs perched atop fried green tomatoes are to die for. All in all, an unpretentious eatery for casual dates and outings.
