Absolutely gorgeous, friendly staff and regulars! Large selection of tea, amazing coffee, declicious pastries from Miel Bonbons.... can't say enough.
All fresh vegetables , a great buffet for lunch. The owner is always making new items with his own spices . His soups are unique, his tasty Chai tea is unlike anything you ever had before as he makes it from scratch. If you want something cooked your way he will do it for you. The lamb is tender and the chicken is a delight.
I also love how clean it is and that the food is fresh, cooked daily . The owner really loves food and stays away from processed ingredients.
His deserts are wonderful as are the salads.
They serve good, fresh, healthy and tasty food . I only wish I lived closer.
very impressed with their selection, authenticity, and ambiance. good prices too.
Good example of how NOT to run a business.
Went by last week on a Wednesday night to see what's coming up on the schedule and the place looks closed down. Only old posters out front with no upcoming shows posted. Guess the old email list is history.
Looks like Katy took the money she raised and is having a private party til the money runs out. Sad to see! Merry Christmas and good luck!
Jack Sprat has great food at reasonable prices. Their potato salad is some of the best I have ever had, and the sandwiches and appetizers are really good, too, especially for the price. The staff that we have dealt with have always been helpful and friendly.
Really great place - Relaxing and very welcoming - if your in Raleigh you really should give it a try

This restaurant is no longer open. Our family attempted to go there for dinner tonight, Dec 10, 2010, and 109 N Gregson St is now an unoccupied building. Too bad; I heard it was a great restaurant!
but HORRIBE service
VERY RUDE and DID NOT ONCE SMILE to us
and can not find Manager to help me
Wow this place is great. i had so much fun at Bio Ritmo and then Hotclub of Cowtown last weekend. Amazing sound, lights and libations. I danced all night for two nights in a row. Incredibly 9th wonder performed after Hotclub of Cowtown. I was starting to think I would never leave.
Went to see the Chip Robinson benefit at Southland. All I can say is amazing place to see live bands! Finally someone was thinking. Every spot in the entire place offers excellent view and incredible sound. The bar is big, got my beers fast, good selection and pricing. The nicest bathrooms I have ever seen in rock club. I will be back!
The Casbah brings a welcome music venue to Durham with good quality acts. This is the good news. The bad news is that there is no way of knowing which shows offer seating and which shows are standup for 2.5 hours. Imagine our surprise when we showed up for the Hotclub of Cowtown concert (not a dance) with pre-purchased tickets and were told that this was a no seating show. The owner told us that this was stated on their web page; it was not. We left at intermission and won't be coming back. Too bad because the music is good.
My God, this is a fabulous restaurant. My grandmother sent me a clipping from the NYTimes Magazine about it, and so my husband and I checked it out tonight: tamales with delicious side salad, BBQ plate, collards, pickles, ham plate, fried green tomatoes. A beautiful presentation and everything was delicious! Very friendly staff. Will return many times! I would suggest getting there early - they had run out of pork ribs and most pies by 7pm on Friday night.
The high point of our evening at Casbah was an uninspired set by the headliners (The Autumn Defense). The openers (Johnny Irion without Sarah Guthrie) opened 1 -1/2 hours late and played less than 30 min. ETIX double-billed for tickets. Sorry- we're not going back. Since Casbah was unable to provide a membership card by the end of the evening, this will be simplified.
Address is 1040 Duffy's Way.... On the right outside Carrboro, just before Orange Grove Road... Any directions that say go Orange Grove to Charles Land are OUTDATED...
Excellent venue to see live music! Clean, spacious, good sound, huge bar, friendly staff, big stage, reasonable ticket prices, AND located a few steps from Glenwood South... how conveinent! Southland is unlike any other live music spot in Raleigh.
The most heavenly, eyeball-rolling, daily-baked pita anywhere. I come from the same part of the world as Jamil, the owner, and when I first tasted the bread that they only started producing a year ago, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Just like the bread my dear Mom used to make (psst...even better!) I would give the place 5 stars for their bread, but they have got to find a way to keep the food platters in the restaurant's display cases from looking so sloppy.
Are you looking for fun??? Katy's is a great place for fun. Good music and friendly people. No one is a stranger here. Like to dance? Put your dancing shoes on because you won't be sitting.
I went there my first time and had a great time will be returning when ever possible.

Thank you so much for the pictures J Received your separate email with the additional shot as well. I immediately forwarded them to my daughter (she lives in Atlanta). She responded back raving about it! And the ultimate compliment to your talent, she also said that the ring is so me! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your ability to take the thoughts & feel I had in my head and transform them into such a beautiful piece of art.
I would love to see any cuff bracelets you design along this line. My husband said that he would be happy for me to share them with him too! I think sometimes he struggles to capture my taste, but he wants to very much! He’s always very happy when I find something I really like.
It was fun for me to work with you on this project. You are such a wonderful & gifted artisan. Your spirit & ideas just flow! Thank you for sharing that gift. I’ll keep your husband in my prayers. I hope his procedure is a success.
Your very happy customer ~
Scratch Piedmont off Your List
I’ve gone to Piedmont a handful of times each year since it opened and loved it. The ingredients were of the highest quality, the preparations skillful and the result was a fantastic meal.
All of that is gone. I walked in last and noticed very few familiar faces on the staff, less in the kitchen. The menu has lost focus. It’s now a hodge-podge of “hot” ingredients (ancho chiles and quinoa) and techniques. As a result it’s difficult to put together a coherent meal with all the different flavors and approaches.
The portions have become miserly. The oh-so tired “squeeze bottle” presentation has shown up.
I was served a portion of pork loin that consisted mainly of fat and connective tissue. I would never have served it to a guest in my home.
I don’t really mind that they’ve dumbed down the wine list, but the wines in the various categories don’t make a lot of sense.
More important, they don’t taste very good; at least the 3 we sampled. How hard can it be to go down to Craig and Seth’s find some great $15-$20 bottles and double the price?
Piedmont also doesn’t take Amex anymore, so be prepared if you are on a business dinner.
It would have been better if they changed the name to signal a break with the past; I wouldn’t have had such high hopes dashed.
