Top 4 Essential Brunch Spots in Charleston

Before you begin a full day in downtown Charleston, you’ll want to fuel up with a substantial morning feast. In a city known for culinary excellence, Charleston delivers plenty of brunch options to delight every type of foodie. Gather your close friends and family and savor Lowcountry-inspired breakfast delicacies prepared by the finest kitchens in the South. And don’t forget, no brunch is complete without a Bloody Mary! 

Here are Kiawah River’s best recommendations for your next delicious brunch: 

 

The Watch Rooftop Kitchen & Spirits  |  75 Wentworth Street 

Savor a hearty breakfast over gorgeous views of the Charleston skyline at one of the best rooftop restaurants downtown. Known for its panoramic views of Charleston’s peninsula, the farm-to-table establishment offers a satisfying breakfast menu featuring luscious buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon rolls and biscuits and gravy. If you take your brunch slowly, you may even experience its live music, which begins at noon.  

 

Millers All Day  |  120 King Street 

Millers All Day believes breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Located on King Street and just a pinch away from Broad Street, you’ll be in the perfect location to explore the best of historic downtown Charleston after satisfying your breakfast cravings. The new restaurant offers hearty brunch options including its famous Unicorn Grits and Cornmeal, which you can purchase in their shop to take home and cook yourself. You can also enjoy fresh eggs from Storey Farms at Kiawah River Farm, which are used in some of the café’s dishes.  

 

Husk  |  76 Queen Street 

Order up a large plate of Southern-style breakfast plus a Bloody Mary garnished with fresh-shaved ham at Husk, located in the heart of downtown Charleston. All the dishes incorporate local ingredients and heirloom products favored by homes across the Carolinas. Give the butchers’ omelet with cured meats a try! 

 

The Park Café  |  730 Rutledge Avenue 

This neighborhood breakfast café offers a picturesque ambiance to go along with creative dishes you’ll come back for time and time again. The Park Café focuses on locally sourced ingredients from Charleston farms for added freshness. We recommend ordering the avocado toast, one of the best we’ve ever tried! 

 

If you’re planning to start your weekend downtown, we hope you’ll enjoy one of these spots for an impressive brunch and atmosphere for you and your company. Bon appétit
