A great day at the beach starts with a delicious breakfast. Lucky for you, Myrtle Beach has a wealth of restaurants to satisfy the hungriest travelers — whether you crave an upscale experience or downhome cooking.
Do you have a favorite morning eatery when you visit Myrtle Beach?
We’ve got some suggestions. It’s not easy to single out just five. There’s just something special about breakfast out when you’re on vacation, isn’t there?
Blueberry’s Grill has everyone covered, including the kids. It’s a great spot to try the southern skillet or go all out with chicken and waffles. Visit locations in Barefoot Landing or on North Kings Highway for great food and friendly service.
You must try: The Blueberry’s Monie Cristo is an unreal treat of sweet and savory, with housemade triple-berry compote. The Steak and Eggs are elevated (dry-aged, Agnus center-cut top sirloin.)
You’ve probably had a Bloody Mary in the morning, but how about a Breakfast Margarita? They’re a real thing! Specialty waffles are their jam, and the red velvet is scrumptious. They serve pancakes, homemade bread, and have fresh-squeezed orange juice. A nice touch.
You must try: Are you an early riser? Johnny D’s has a spectacular early-bird menu, and it’s just $5 for an entree and drink. Their Spicy Avocado Omelet will give your morning a tasty kick.
Whatever you get, get it with the loaded home fries. This chain is popular in the southeast for its signature omelets. You’re going to love what you order, whether it’s Bananas Foster French Toast or a breakfast sandwich.
You must try: The Southern Bowl comes with those famous home fries, mixed into an incredible mix of eggs, grits, sausage crumbles, and sausage gravy. How does a Philly Cheese Steak Burger with Home Fries sound for breakfast? Yeah, we love it too.
A Myrtle Beach tradition since 1962, Sea Captain’s House will have you hooked with one breakfast. Choose the make-your-own-omelet for a meal fit for a captain. You’ll enjoy friendly service, gorgeous beach views, and a welcoming atmosphere here.
Must try: Breakfast Quiche is the chef’s specialty, so you know it’s good. Crab Cakes Benedict is a special treat, especially with homemade hollandaise sauce.
For an upscale breakfast, head to the place with an onsite bakery and elegant vibe: Croissants Bistro & Bakery. Come around for breakfast (or brunch) of comfort food. The quiche is savory, with bacon and sausage, and their coffee is wonderful.
Must try: Go with the namesake, and get chocolate or almond croissant. They’re decadent! Get Two Eggs to Order for an amazing breakfast, with, of course, a freshly baked croissant.
