Whenever I have someone come into town to visit, the first thing I think of is “Where can we go for brunch?” And as such a boozy city, Charleston has no shortages of amazing brunch places. So as we’re gearing up for the weekend, I thought I would share a few of my favorites with you guys.
If you’re looking for a brunch on the lighter side, I would definitely recommend the Park Cafe. Located just off of upper King Street, Park Cafe has the best avocado toast in town, hands down. Order one of their amazing lattes as well and you’ll be set for the day, without the overstuffed feeling brunch can sometimes leave you with.
Miller’s All Day
One of the newer places in Charleston for a delicious brunch, my favorite thing about Miller’s All Day is the decor. And not to take away from the food and drink at all, but I just love how uniquely decked out this little spot is. If you’re in the area, you can’t go wrong with the Short Stack or an order of their Biscuits and Gravy – so good!
Page’s Okra Grill
Honestly, I wish I could go to Page’s every day for brunch, if only just for the bloody mary’s. But since drinking on an empty stomach is never my best idea, I’m happy to dig into their amazing menu every time. And since Page’s Okra Grill is located so close to Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, it’s an ideal place to start if you’re trying to keep the Sunday day drinking going.
An absolute classic, Hominy Grill is my go-to for when I have guests in town. With a “drive-thru” style outdoor bar and no reservations allowed, Hominy Grill is always a good choice. I 100% recommend getting the grits if they don’t already come with your order – and if they do, just go ahead and order some more on the side, that’s how good they are.
Mill Street Tavern
Though it’s not actually a place I’ve been before, I am dying to try out Mill Street Tavern. Located on Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, the menu is packed full of amazing dishes that I can’t wait to try. I’m already trying to decide if I’m going to get the West Coast Benedict, Hash of the Day or the Fat Stack of Pancakes when I finally make it there.
