Great omelets and good service

They serve breakfast during all of their open hours. We enjoyed a Sunday brunch on a rainy day the first weekend in February. They have a great deal for a pitcher of mimosa- only $22. Their omelets and egg scrambles were served hot and were consistent with their descriptions on the menu. They... read more

After biking around Kiawah we stumbled on the Southern Kitchen and just expected a typical cafe but this place really stands above normal. Three of us had breakfast and one had lunch. No one was disappointed! The flavors were great, the variety surprising. Don't dismiss this cafe and your next visit to the island. Chicken and waffles...still dreaming of them!

My wife and I ate breakfast there. They specialize in breakfast all day. I think they close around 2PM. We each had the corned beef hash. It was terrific. It was home-made and not out of a can. It was served in the hot pan it was cooked in. Service was great. Definitely a keeper place.

Got a tip about this place on our recent visit to Seabrook/Kiawah area. The kitchen did not disappoint. Our server, Leon, was excellent. Chicken and waffles and the shrimp & grits were the favorite among our group. A huge storm occurred during our lunch and the power went out, but the service did not miss a beat. We will definitely...

Ate here with two children and two adults for lunch. Service was just ok but friendly. Food was good - we had omelets and kids had burgers. Kids menu is a great deal considering how little kids eat ($6.50 for pancakes and bacon) and adult prices were normal standard lunch/brunch prices for a casual spot. Use it for good, solid... More

Although not a true Southener -- people always say Texas does not count -- the food at this little restaurant evoked memories of things I ate in my childhood and youth. The kitchen staff brings the use of seasonings that nod to the mixed ethnicity of the area. That type of cooking is becoming a lost art. It was nice... More

Several people recommended this place for breakfast. We were not disappointed by any means! Excellent food. Highly recommend the chicken and waffles or the chicken and biscuit. Kids loved the chocolate chip pancakes. Only disappointment was that they would not share the chicken recipe!
