A look at Daps

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

Charleston food and beverage industry vets Jeremiah Schenzel and Nicholas Dowling recently opened all-day breakfast restaurant Daps at 280 Ashley Ave. The Westside eatery has been so popular that the dining room and outdoor seating area are routinely packed with brunch-seekers. Families and hungover hipsters commingle for the menu full of hash, egg sandwiches, pancakes, and mimosas on tap.

The inside of Daps is comfortable and laid bach. Schenzel and Dowling took on much of the work themselves, from the tables to the concrete bar to the shelving. Interior design help came from Taylor DeBartola Designs. The drawings and pillows come from Dallas and Alisha Thomas of Pear Face Co. in Wilmington. Photos on the wall are the work of Jared Bramblett.

Here, Eater takes a look around Daps after closing hours.

Daps opens on Sunday through Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
