This restaurant has been around for 20+ years and the fresh quality food keeps people waiting in line for breakfast and lunch! Ge there early and bring cash (only). Must haves for breakfast are the omlettes and fruit/yogurt!

Cute little spot....can be very crowded as it is very popular with visitors and residents. Everything was freshly prepared and served with a smile....we got there twice in our 4 day stay....and would recommend for family or couples.

The wait was a little long but the food was great. I had breakfast and it was very good. Also liked the fruit in the plate. Worth the wait.

This is a quaint great restaurant. Very small seating area, but fantastic eggs Benedict. There is usually a wait during tourist season and worth the wait.

The food is incredibly good. So is the service. Friendly, professional wait staff and the best breakfast in the Charleston area. Sea Biscuit is a... More

Every time we visit IOP, we must eat at the Sea Biscuit for breakfast....at least once (or more). The food is made to order and from scratch. Where else can you get French toast on homemade bread?!!! This time I had the crab cakes benedict and they were amazing! They had so much flavor, as did the hash brown potatoes.... More

Limited seating but worth the wait. Excellent homemade biscuits. Bring cash since they do not take credit or debit cards-a minor inconvenience considering the quality of the food.

We were having breakfast at Acme one morning watching the steady flow of people in the Sea Biscuit Café. We tried it the next day. Seating is a limited and a little tight. We had to wait a few minutes for a table. We each got a Classic Breakfast - 2 eggs with breakfast ham, grits and a biscuit and... More

Great menu, good service, very relaxing if you get there before 8:30 (especially on weekends). Order things that you like, it is all well made, decent prices. I always go there when on the Island.
