The Newest Brunch Spots in Charleston, October 2021
Mimosas and more
1. Mex 1 Coastal Cantina
Baja restaurant Mex 1 Coastal Cantina is well known for margaritas and shrimp tacos, but now its jumping into the brunch pool. Look for chorizo and potato tacos, huevos divorciados, Mexicali burritos, churro doughnuts, and a Tito’s vodka and passionfruit cocktail served in a coconut.
2. Park & Grove
Wagener Terrace restaurant Park & Grove has all the greatest brunch hits on its menu — huevos rancheros, avocado toast, shakshuka, stuffed French toast, and more.
Ok, so Berkeley’s doesn’t have a dedicated brunch menu, but the lunch menu of patty melts and chicken Parmesan can cure any lingering hangovers on a Sunday. The restaurant has also been known to “put an egg on it” during the weekend, meaning it offers more breakfast-y specials.
