Just about perfect. Five stars. Every detail from greeting to service is friendly and efficient. The staff obviously take real pride in their work. We recommend as the Best of Beaufort.

The food and service was excellent! I would highly recommend this place for breakfast. Lunch and dinner menu looked great but only found this place the day we were leaving. Will go back and try lunch or dinner when back in Beaufort SC.

We did a family road trip to Florida and this place was so amazing for coffee. We stayed in Beaufort for 2 days and really needed good coffee. This place was yummy to the tummy if you're a coffee lover. My husband got an espresso...to go and I got a basic small coffee. If we were staying longer would definitely try this place out for breakfast as it was packed with a long waiting line. The customer service was quick and friendly, the atmosphere was inviting.More

This was a very nice breakfast stop, that offered gluten-free options for my wife. I enjoyed the French toast, Texas toast size. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals as well, my daughter loved her burger. Both Savannah and Presley were very very attentive...and friendly as far as our wait staff.More

This is currently my favorite breakfast joint in Beaufort. The pancakes & bacon combo is incredible! You get 3 big delicious pancakes. Just melt a pat of butter between each one, cover them in syrup, oh yeah that’s the stuff. Then wash it down with...3 BIG slices of bacon; bacon that is actually tasty, not just salty. Sometimes it’s crispy, sometimes it’s not, but it’s always just as tasty; I don’t know how they do it. If you love breakfast, trust me & go to Blackstones & get the pancakes & bacon!!!!More

Terrific restaurant off the beaten path. Loved looking at the banners and pennants from various schools that hang from the walls. The food was excellent. The restaurant was only open until 2PM and served breakfast throughout its operating hours. We had delicious omelets for lunch....My shrimp and cheese omelet among the best I have had as were the accompanying hash browns and biscuit. We’d passed up this restaurant on our first search for lunch, then circled back when we found other options too crowded. That turned out to be a lucky break since we would have missed out on a great meal otherwise. Next time we will start here and stay!More

Visiting Beaufort, we arrived about 10:30 and chose to eat breakfast before taking a carriage tour. This was a great place to do it, and within easy walking distance of the tour and the water front and shopping. Parked on Scott St. just across from...the cafe and had a very good breakfast with lots of choices on the menu. Staff was efficient and friendly and very welcoming.More

I called a couple of days before my wedding to arrange breakfast for 15 hungry men on the morning of my wedding. The staff was incredible! They arranged the seating and the kitchen was ready with prompt service and excellent food. The pricing was reasonable,...and we tried almost everything on the menu with only raving reviews. This was such a special memory. Thank you for contributing to the best day of my life!More
