Charleston, SC Boulevard Diner
As we keep heading South along the Coastal Carolina Saltwater Fishing Trail, out next stop is in Charleston South Carolina. When it comes to find a good breakfast joint in the Low Country the biggest problem is deciding which one. Even though there is no shortage of great spots we had to pick one and that pick is the Boulevard Diner in Mt. Pleasant. Over the many years of traveling up and down the coast I try to time my breakfast around this great stop. I first learned about the great food at the Boulevard Diner a number of years ago when I was treated to breakfast there by Anthony Noury the owner of the local Sea Tow marine assistance franchise. This dinning legend is a throwback to the diners of the 1950’s. It’s located in what appears to be an old pizza joint with the vintage shape and feel. The restaurant was started by local restaurateur, Sal Parco in 1994. The atmosphere is inviting with whiteboards featuring the specials of the day and a veteran wait staff that is attentive and pleasant. The diner is known for its hearty breakfast choices and man size servings. They feature big fluffy buttermilk pancakes with great sides. They’re also known for their fantastic omelets made with your choice of ingredients. My favorite is the eggs benedict and crab cake benedict. It’s all made from scratch and more tasty than you can ever imagine. They also offer fruit bowls for the healthy eater and a number of lighter breakfast options For the more traditional Southern breakfast eater, they have the basic ham, sausage or bacon and eggs. But the biscuit and gravy is a breakfast you’ll never forget. The Boulevard Diner has great service and the favorite of many well known Charleston locals. It’s located Just across the bridge in Mt. Pleasant, SC, just a few blocks from Shem Creek, right on the water. They open at 7:00 am, but get there early because there’s sure to be a crowd.
