This is a great place with a HUGE menu of items. If you are familiar with the Village Deli in Cameron Village in Raleigh, this is the same, but in Wake Forest, so actually it's better! :)

Epicurious George

Went for a late breakfast / early lunch. A few folks got the chocolate chip pancakes-- huge portion, and really good. The rest of us had sandwiches, and all of us were very happy with our choices. Definitely will come back!
