Brunching around town

Queen St. Grocery, Queen St., Charleston, S.C.
This scene at the Queen St. Grocery looks just about right. Comfortable but not packed. So many brunchie places I walk by have long waiting lines curling around the corner. Hominy Grill, Jestine's Kitchen, Triangle Char & Bar. I can't do it. I don't mind waiting a while for a special dinner with complicated ingredients and cooking skills but I can't stand in line for breakfast. I can make decent pancakes myself and even mimosas are a breeze. When my kids were little that was family eat out time and we knew every good brunch place in town.

Are you a brunch eater? Where do you like to go and what do you like to order?

I always look forward to weekend brunches. I like breakfast food, K is all over the board.

I think I will start cooking brunch for people. Bacon makes every meal a hit.

I adore brunches! We used to go out for breakfast often in the past, but "the mister" isn't crazy about it anymore. Instead I go to cafes early in the mornings while he sleeps in. Life is a transition! For special family occasions I still prefer brunches at home with my killer egg recipe and lots of fruit, some bagels, juice and hot black coffee.

Anywhere with a good Bloody Mary, especially if it priced to sell.
