Last Friday morning, before finishing our last-minute Christmas shopping and errand-running, Caroline, Pierce, Sydney, and I headed over to one of my favorite restaurants in town for breakfast. The Park Cafe just opened in February, and it’s located on Rutledge in an up-and-coming area of Charleston near Hampton Park.
The interior is beautifully designed with attention to detail large and small. From eclectic light fixtures, to tiny bud vases, to a living wall, to a Le Creuset wall – they covered it all! Plus, there is a TON of natural light, as well as outdoor seating that is dog friendly!!! (I know where Hasell and I will be when it warms up!)
Each time I’ve eaten lunch at the cafe, I’ve ordered the combo of shredded kale salad (with dates, pickled onions, and almonds – DELICIOUS) + hummus (which is now a tasty field pea hummus) + sweet tea (of course). It’s a great lunch place if you’re looking for something light with a restaurant experience, rather than a quick order at the counter situation. A ladies lunch, if you will.Breakfast, however, is probably my favorite offering at The Park Cafe. Their avocado toast is out of this world with lemon and chili flakes. Plus, their fruit selection is really good! I’m funny about what kind of fruit I like from a restaurant – no more melon + pineapple for me – so I was pumped about the combo of strawberries, pineapple, grapes, and apples. Plus, they also have halved grapefruits. Oh, and the coffee and lattes are delicious as well. I hear the breakfast sandwich is pretty killer, too!
Next up on my list is to try their dinner – I know it won’t disappoint!
