Folly Beach Brunch

Sunday Brunch is a great way to start the week on Folly Beach.  Crab cakes, eggs benedict, and shrimp and grits are some of the most ordered breakfasts and are on most menus in Charleston.  Here are the restaurants that are most popular on Folly for brunch, and we will list our favorite specials from them.  Start your morning off with a freshly made mimosa or bloody mary while perusing the spectacular choices from these local chefs.

Lost Dog Cafe – The Lost Dog Cafe is by far the most frequented with notoriously great food and is located on West Huron Avenue.  Specials include the Folly Benedict, an english muffin that has one crab cake, one shrimp cake, asparagus, two poached eggs and is drenched in a delicate hollandaise sauce.  It’s perfectly delivered with fruit slices and pairs well with a cappuccino.  Huevos Rancheros is another feature that have locals in a tizzy, along with the stuffed Original Burrito.   If you prefer sweeter options, choose the banana nut pancakes,  their daily made muffins, or some hot french toast and sip on some chai tea.  Indoor and outdoor seating make for a comfortable meal.  The outdoor patio is surrounded by foliage, and you can enjoy a quiet conversation with your companions.  Drinks served in Mason jars add to the cozy atmosphere.  Plan on coming early to The Lost Dog Cafe, as the wait may be close to an hour at the peak of the day!

Blu Restaurant and Bar – Blu, located at the Tides Hotel, is an oceanfront restaurant with a gorgeous view.  One of the best options on this menu is the ability to create your own omelet from choices including sausage, bacon, a variety of cheeses, spinach, tomato, and ham.  Lightly breaded Fried Chicken with flaky Biscuits is another of the most ordered items.  For a lighter fare, try the Smoked Salmon Salad.   It’s combined with baby lettuce, hard boiled egg, with a light drizzle of pistachio vinaigrette with bagel chips on the side.  Afterward, enjoy the Atlantic breeze from the outside deck while sipping on your favorite aperitif.  They have a fully stocked bar to meet all cocktail needs.

The Grill and Island Bar – First off, The Grill and Island Bar has the best mimosas in town.  It’s perfectly poured with a nice bubbly topped with a splash of orange juice for just $3.95 each or bottomless for $9.50 during brunch.  A Flounder Benedict is a nice option, as it turns the traditional eggs benedict into a fish lover’s heaven.  Breakfast sandwiches, made from your choice of breads, are made with eggs, bacon, sausage or fried steak and cheese.  For something different, try their shrimp biscuit, covered in  a blend of shrimp, sausage, bacon, onions and peppers mixed in a creamy garlic sauce.  Skillets and breakfast flatbread pizzas are also available. The restaurant is easily found on Center Street just across from The Lost Dog.
