Owners of neighborhood restaurant Vern’s, Dano and Bethany Heinze, wanted customers to know that brunch is not an afterthought, so they started the weekend service as soon as they opened. Look for vegetable-heavy menu items, omelets, and sandwiches from the mind of a master chef.

Can a bagel be considered brunch? It can cure a hangover, so maybe? Holey City Bagels has drawn crowds in Cannonborough/Elliotborough since it unlocked the doors. Grab a bacon, egg, and cheese on a fresh-boiled bagel with a cup of coffee and feel better.

Bodega CHS

Bodega is the permanent outpost of the former Bodega pop-up at Uptown Social. The interiors have many nods to New York culture with subway tiles and a “Post No Bills” wall with graffiti. The menu offers items that can be eaten on the go, like the classic bacon, egg, and cheese on a hard roll or a giant breakfast burrito. Though you can also have a seat and try the extensive coffee menu and a full bar for those in need of a bloody mary.

Millers All Day - James Island

Copy Link

Fans of brunch fun spot Millers All Day should take notice — you no longer need to fight the downtown crowds for a chance to order the hot honey chicken doughnut, shrimp and grits, or a lobster roll, because there’s a second location on James Island now. Go hard with breakfast shooters — try the tequila-based, French-toast-flavored one.

The Partum Company

The Longboard

Copy Link

Sullivan’s Island spot the Longboard reworked its brunch offerings and now offers a bigger selection of comforting breakfast-y items. Look for the wood-grilled avocado bowl with crispy smashed potatoes and tomatillo salsa or the smoke fish toast with trout roe. On the sweeter side, there’s the banana waffle with whipped ricotta, pineapple lime curd, and tamarind sorghum syrup.
