Mount Pleasant's Best Comfort Foods to Keep You Cozy & Warm

Hearty Biscuit and Hot Coffee

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we are starting out with a southern staple. Nothing says “good morning” like a big fluffy biscuit with all the fixings and a fresh hot cup of coffee to wash it down. Never begin your day on an empty stomach again! Hunt down this fluffy and flakey goodness at local favorites such as Vicious Biscuit, Flying Biscuit Cafe, Maple Street Biscuit Company, and others.

Savory Shrimp & Grits

We would be remiss if this Lowcountry favorite was not on our list. The number one way to elevate your dining experience in Mount Pleasant is to grab a warm bowl of shrimp and grits. This dish is so popular, that you could probably walk outside, open your mouth, and shrimp and grits will land on your tongue without any effort at all. While we wish this was true, unique variations of shrimp and grits can be sought out at Page’s Okra Grill, Grace & Grit, Tavern & Table, and many more.

The World Is Your Oyster

From raw to Rockefeller, there are so many ways you can enjoy these salty crustaceans. Although, in the colder months that end with the letter ‘R’, a freshly roasted bushel of oysters on a brisk day is pure nirvana. Mount Pleasant is home to the world’s largest oyster festival, the Lowcountry Oyster Festival. If you are not here for the festival, you can still have a shucking good time at Art’s Bar and Grill, Red’s Ice House, NICO Oysters + Seafood, and others.

Fried and Gone To Heaven

Put some south in your mouth with fried… everything! Fried chicken, fried seafood platters, fried potatoes, chicken-fried steak, fried pork chops, and more all lined up like grandma’s onions.  Topped with or without gravy, the satisfying golden crunch in Mount Pleasant will wear you slap out. Get your fill at gems like Coleman Public House, Graze, H&R Sweetshop, and more.

Save Room For Dessert

Remember when we said that breakfast was the most important meal of the day? We might have to change our minds now that dessert is on the table. With a variety of family-owned bakeries and dessert shops in town, you can be sure to get your just desserts after an adventurous day. From freshly baked pies to from-scratch cupcakes and turnovers, your sweet tooth will be ringing. Answer the call at spots like Cupcake Down South, Kudzu Bakery, Fractured Prune, and the list goes on.
