College of Charleston junior + marketing major Julia K. has provided a guide to local brunch spots that offer experiences for every type of bruncher.
Whether your definition of brunch is shamelessly going for thirds at the buffet, rolling out of bed too late to call it breakfast, or topping off Mimosa carafes with a side of Bloody Mary’s – we’re here for it all.
This trendy lower King St. breakfast + lunch spot has been a huge hit since it made its way to town in March of last year. From the photo booth to the vinyl record wall, to the wide variety of totally Instagrammable cocktails– it’s hard to leave this place without snapping a few pics.
While the vintage ambiance draws you in, their southern specialty bites will seal the deal. Wake up late? They have your back serving breakfast all day with their crowd-pleasing motto, “the best days start -or end- with a great breakfast and a great cocktail.” For the Fish Out of Water The Darling Oyster Bar, 513 King St.
While you might not have made it out on the boat today, you can drop your anchor at the Darling Oyster Bar. This charming raw bar transforms itself into a seafood-based brunch extraordinaire, featuring notable dishes such as shrimp + grits (topped with a fried egg of course), smoked salmon cake benedict, and *drumroll* a Bloody Mary topped with a lobster claw.
Sounds like the catch of the day!
These local Charleston gems offer invaluable experiences and mouthwatering food selections for your late breakfast/early lunch.
