We always make it a point to stop for breakfast when we visit Isle of Palms. Their specials are really interesting, but if you're inclined, you can order off the menu. Their portions are good-sized; you won't be hungry. Their selection of french toast varies during the week, but they are all good. A really good place for breakfast.

Cozy breakfast spot -- delicious coffee, great menu, cash only. There are also blackboard specials -- we had the blueberry walnut French toast and the Fried Green Tomato Benedict but the Crabcake Benedict and the omelettes at a nearby table looked scrumptious, too!

My husband and I had breakfast here on Nov. 28. We each ordered one of the daily specials from the chalk board. Wow! I had THE BEST fried green tomato egg Benedict ever! He ordered the Blueberry - Walnut French Toast. It was incredible... With the blueberries actually baked into the bread , not just dumped on top. GREAT breakfast... More

The Sea Biscuit Café is like insider trading--you get tipped off by someone who knows and you have to be prepared to stand in line (no paper trail of reservations) and they deal in cash only (there's an ATM machine out front), and the rewards are wonderful--a truly delicious down-home breakfast or lunch. Go early, and often. French toast, pancakes,... More

I like breakfast on the porch here. I have come here several times this year, always glad I did. Cash only but there is an atm outside.

We had a nice lunch here and the food was great. We had a couple of the specials and enjoyed them very much. Lots of flavor. I wish we had eaten here a few more times. Everyone was very nice and welcoming!

Enjoyed this cozy, high-in-demand breakfast ( and lunch) spot on the IOP. They make a killer veggie omelet.
