Charleston’s Best Breakfast Spots

A nice place where you can have breakfast or brunch is Island Provisions, which has just recently opened. It’s a perfect spot if you’re craving a smoothie or breakfast sandwich. Another beautiful spot to have your breakfast is Hampton Park. In early spring, all the camellia trees are in full bloom, making the place ideal for those Instagram shots.

Organize a fun girls’ night for you and your friends in First Friday Art Walk, which is run by the Charleston Gallery Association. They have monthly events where you can discover captivating artworks. Then, you can go for dinner and drinks. For pizza lovers, a must-visit place is Frannie & the Fox, which is part of the Emeline Hotel. Or, if you want to try something different, opt for Chez Nous. It feels like a little bit of Europe in Charleston, and the menu changes every night.

Boysterous Couture is a new boutique run by two gentlemen. They offer handmade handbags, wallets, belts, and watchbands. Some of these accessories are made from alligator and stingray leather. You may even spot bow ties from oyster shells. Another place that is worth a visit is J. Stark. It’s a longtime family-owned bag and company that sells leather items. Plus, you can even go inside and watch them sew.
