We can't get enough brunch. Trust us. We have a lot more of these posts coming all week.
And when we asked Kelly Sherrill, our city director for Charleston, where her favorite brunch spot is, she said she couldn't pick one. And that's fine with us. So we gave her a dedicated post to help you eat and drink your way through any weekend in the Lowcountry. From a seasoned brunch pro to you, grab a bib and dig in:
on Sullivan’s Island - a local gem, great casual spot near the beach, with the friendliest staff. There’s never a shortage of delicious specials and most of your expected brunch fare but one of my favorites is the Crab Cake Benedict!
Sea Biscuit Cafe - another great spot close to home on IOP ( Isle of Palms). They serve a fantastic breakfast/brunch but expect a wait - this one is a favorite of locals and tourists alike (including all those early-risers headed to the links nearby for a round of 18 holes). You can’t go wrong with one of the daily omelet specials or a stack of pancakes. Be sure and bring cash (no credit cards accepted here).
is where The South meets Southwest. A great menu featuring many favorites from the south and southwest. My favorite spot for Heuvos Rancheros and the Mimosa and Bellini “special” seems to be a never ending pour!
Hominy Grill is a tried and true favorite downtown Charleston. The shrimp & grits are not to be missed and if you’re feeling adventurous (or a little hung-over) try the “Charleston Nasty Biscuit” - with fried chicken breast, cheddar cheese and smothered in sausage gravy. Expect a wait here too; I’m afraid the secret is long ago out on what a great spot this is for brunch.
And if that wasn’t enough, here are a few I’ve yet to try for brunch but are on the ‘must visit soon” list:
