The cinnamon rolls were fresh and delicious. And the truffle mac and cheese side had a baked bread crumb topping — it was very rich and creamy.”
Yelper Scott H. noted, “The appetizers, cheesesteak egg rolls and ahi tacos, were exceptional. So were the artichoke beignets and the heirloom tomato and burrata salad.”

#00 Saloon is a country dance hall and traditional American and breakfast and brunch spot.
Located in the Himmarshee Historic District, this 12,000-square-foot space was designed to resemble an old distillery and just might make you feel like you’re in the Old West.
