At the end of dinner, the chef, Breakfast Shoppe veteran Rob Hemphill, came out to chat. Like our waiter, he was friendly and easy to talk to. The people, the food, the casual vibe — all approachable and unpretentious. And thanks to Fitchett and Algave's due diligence, the bill was just as easy to handle.
