Ollie Vaughn's

It’s far too easy to get lost in the pastry case at Ollie Vaughn’s. If the sky-high slab of peanut butter cheesecake drizzled in chocolate doesn’t get you, the caramel-drenched pecan sticky bun or powdered sugar-dusted lemon bar on buttery shortbread will. So many choices. But beyond the beckoning display, owner Lindsay Magee has created a true neighborhood hangout with a menu of flawless morning food. Seemingly simple yet perfectly elevated favorites such as buttermilk biscuits and gravy, lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry compote, and baked eggs with local sausage can be washed down with lovely lattes or boozy drinks. The vibe is just as inspiring. A rare blend of cool kid spot with hidden gem appeal, the counter service restaurant hums inside with music and regulars, while the patio feels like a hip oasis.
