Mark and I love to breakfast on the weekends. Unless it is raining you will find us riding into breakfast on the Harley. We do not repeat dine very often because there are just so many places to try these days. However, we do end up coming to the same location 2 times in the same a weekend from time to time when we know the kids will love a certain restaurant.
After more than 20 years of dreaming and creating meals I look for inspiration for new dishes when we eat out. Maybe these reviews might inspire a new dish or two for you and your family.
Breakfasting with Mark & Tabitha – FILLING OUR PIE HOLES
We were researching breakfast places and came across Se7en Bites and had honestly NEVER heard of it!! Once we checked out the menu (below) and figured out it had been featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” we were all over it!
We were taking the bike so Mark needed to map out the route, I am not a fan of the bike on the highway and prefer the backroads. Wasn’t ready for the brick roads though – that was a blast! The ride was nice and the weather here in Florida was a perfect 70-something… this is awesome Fall weather.
We were early for the restaurant so we stopped into 711 for a sip and found some great NEW snacks and products. I love gas station finds…

As I mentioned we were early about 20minutes. When we drove through there was NO ONE there, parking lot was empty. Came back a short time later and a line had formed… and more people were pulling in.
They must get pretty busy because they have a very long line of DOTS to social distance outside. The dots by the way are adorable with cute little sayings on them.
There us a staff member that comes around hands you a menu and takes your temperature. Once inside, you can view the specials and place your order at the counter. They have cocktails and beer as well as other refreshing choices. I had some sort of cranberry ginger ale lime aid concoction…. it did not have vodka in it but would have been amazing with vodka in it! It was amazing and I loved it!
After you have placed your order they give you a metal number and you sit down at a table of your choice, they have tables outside as well.
While Mark sat and sipped his black coffee, which was also yummy, I looked at the desserts. The desserts were at a separate counter… probably because there were so many to choose from. I purchased ENOUGH, bagged them up to bring back to the kids. See below.
Purchase – They also have other items for purchase… see photographs below. No I did not get a coffee cup – I have no idea why! dumbass!
- lunch – they serve all day – so you can have their FAMOUS chicken pot pie for breakfast or get it to go! I wanted to get it to go – but Mark said we would come back another day for lunch! The pot pies were coming out of the oven when we were ordering at 9:15am
- Menu – we have included images of the menu’s at the end of this – including their drink menu
All the little circle have fun sayings on them – this one was my favorite.
Seating is available outside as well.
Lots of Art to look at in line while you wait.
THE FOOD WE FILLED OUR PIE HOLES WITH
When we read the menu online… I knew exactly what I was getting. The minnie pearl – 2 pearl sugar waffles their buttermilk fried chicken with a splash of hot honey, over medium egg, topped with vanilla bean butter syrup & served with cheddar chive grits.
- I think eggs on chicken is odd – so I took this off and ate on the side with the hash browns that Mark ordered with his. I ate half and took the other half home. Grits – I am not a fan so I subbed for Mac and Cheese – that’s right you heard me I ordered Mac and Cheese at 9:15 in the morning!
- This is LEGIT the best chicken I have EVER had!!! Which is saying a lot because I usually choose chicken when we go places. I do not eat “strange” meat or seafood… so if I say this chicken is good… then trust me… this chicken is legit.
Mark – he NEVER looks at the menu in advance cause he LOVES everything!! While we were in line he was sold on the “southern”. The hostess was talking to us and told him he should order the 3 little pigs because it was basically the same thing but WITH GRAVY!! Well he changed his mind when she uttered the word gravy! Then we got inside and he saw the special (below) and changed his mind again. This is unlike him… he was overwhelmed with all the goodness on the menu.
WE LOVED IT ALL!!!
Check out the video if you have not already done so… you need to see this food!!!
INSIDE THE RESTAURANT
Clean!!!! Very well maintained and organized. The staff was great, everyone was working and not standing around shooting the shit. Which is probably why it was so clean and organized… much appreciated!
There is also seating outside.
Love this – such a cute idea!
Honestly, I was expecting a selection but not this big of a selection. We had a hard time choosing something for everyone. We brought them home… un-bagged them and tried them all. Make sure to watch the YouTube video on us trying these out – SUBSCRIBE TO THE CHANNEL!
