Timeless Lowcountry Discovery

Charleston’s Best Brunches

You don’t have to be an early riser to indulge in this southern weekend pastime. Celebrate Southern food culture well into the afternoon with such favorites as Biscuits & Gravy, Chicken & Waffles, Crab Eggs Benedict, Crepes, Fried Green Tomatoes, She-Crab Soup, Shrimp n’ Grits, and Tomato Pie. Don’t forget the beverages! French press coffee, notorious Bloody Mary’s, and sparkling Mimosa flights make the meal all the more savored.

For the best Bloody Mary in Charleston, head to The Darling and order The Captain.
