Breakfast as simple as one could hope.

Roll out of bed and short walk from beach to breakfast on the porch. Great coffee and breakfast in quick order. Get the grilled cinnamon roll. Potatoes seasoned right- simply done right.

We stopped here for lunch twice during a recent stay on Folly Beach. Service starts early and continues well into the afternoon, with the breakfast menu available throughout. Great food - she-crab soup not to be missed among much else. There is outdoor seating in front and to the side. You may have to park a few yards away, or... More

We were at Folly to celebrate our 40th anniversary. On Saturday we went to the Lost Dog Cafe for breakfast. It was very crowded but the wait time was short. They definitely have their act together when it comes to quickly serving their clients. We both had the quiche, the veggie and meat quiche was terrific. We also shared a... More

Without a doubt this is what Folly Beach is about! Casual dining at its best. Whether you want breakfast, brunch or lunch, this is the best on the island!

I have made it a personal mission to sample shrimp and grits all over Charleston. The shrimp and grits at Lost Dog is hands down the best. (And yes, I didi go to Hominy Grill). But then again, I have never had a disappointing meal there. The salads and wraps are all delicious. The She Crab soup was loaded with... More

This place is a gem on a small beach town side street. We were immediately charmed by the laid back atmosphere and the dog pictures all over the place. The breakfast menu was varied and included specialty coffee drinks, bakery items, granola, and fruit as well as quiche, eggs benedict, and french toast. We had quiche with cheese grits and... More

I cannot tell you how great this place is.....casual....dogs on the wall pictures ...past visitors. Food better than the average bear. All of it was good in our 8 party group. DO NOT miss this place.

We stopped here for breakfast before heading into charleston, and I'm glad we did! I got the shrimp and grits, and my wife got a breakfast sandwich on a bagel. My wife said her sandwich was good but nothing spectacular. My shrimp and grits however were amazing. I love shrimp and grits and get them often. This is definitely in... More

Entering the Lost Dog Cafe, a dog lover will immediately recognize kindred spirits, with dozens of dog photos and dog-themed menu selections. The food and coffee drinks were imaginative, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. I drooled over the breakfast and lunch specials but unfortunately could not order and eat all of them! Service was amazing -- when I commented on... More

Honestly, you just can't go wrong at this place. My husband and I sat at the bar and had coffee and chai tea, followed by great Bloody Mary's and a really delicious breakfast. We shared the Folly Eggs Benedict with the shrimp and crab cakes and home fries. Fresh, savory, simply yummy. The bartender (I didn't catch his name) was... More
