Hidden in the back of an otherwise unremarkable strip mall, the Gem Eatery is well-named. Once you find it and make your way inside, the bustling kitchen and welcoming smell of freshly baked goods will reassure you. Breakfast and brunch options abound, from some of the best cheese grits you'll find in these parts to warm, fresh Belgian waffles. Order just about any combination of eggs, bacon, sausage, and hash browns you like, cooked any way you prefer. We recommend the Farmer's Omelet, made with eggs, heavy cream, onion, mushroom, pepper, potato, and your choice of ham, sausage, or bacon, along with a dollop of chive cream cheese. There's also the egg white omelet, if the Farmer's Omelet sounds a bit too caloric. You should really save your calories for the cinnamon bun anyway. Made fresh in-house, this gooey creation is topped with cream cheese icing. Bring friends and share it with the table if you have to, but whatever you do, don't resist it.
