Breakfast served all day

This is a great coffee house, serving tasty Lowcountry-style brunch items all day. The soups and sandwiches are also very good. Smoothies, lattes, cappuccinos also available. Eclectic, comfortable decor with good, friendly service.

My wife Ann and I have been coming to Watusi ever since they opened. When we arrive on the Island, Watusi is the first place we go to eat. The Food at Watusi doesn't get any fresher. I am in LOVE with their Cobb Salad with their home made tomato vinaigrette dressing. My wife LOVES their breakfast food. Special Thanks... More

Perfect place for brunch. Breakfast and lunch menu are served all day so it can satisfy everyone in your group. The various eggs bendicts are perfectly prepared. The one made with potato pancakes is unique and outstanding. The potato pancakes are perfectly prepared with low oil content and perfect crispness. The hollandaise sauce is right on point. The best part... More

It looked pretty ordinary from the outside, but oh my, it was not ordinary! Each person's food was delicious and Jessica's service was outstanding! I love eggs Benedict and their potato Benedict was different, in a very good way. It was delicious and prepared to perfection. The base was crispy hash browns, with ham, tomato, poached eggs, spinach and Hollandaise... More
