Top 5 Places to Brunch in Greenville, South Carolina


Not many things in life go as well together as Sunday and brunch. And in Greenville, South Carolina, brunch is more than an after-church activity, it's a lifestyle. From bottomless mimosas to build-your-own grits bars, there's a little something for everyone. So whether you're feeling boozy or looking to soak up some of Saturday, these five brunch spots will solidify your Sunday plans.

Tupelo Honey Café – there's not much Tupelo can do wrong and brunch is no exception. A variety of small plates, traditional egg breakfasts and specialties like the sweet potato pancakes (pro tip: add fried chicken) make this a great choice for large groups because there's something to please everyone. The food is exceptional but the real star of brunch here are the Bloody Marys. There are three choices but the ultimate in boozy bloodies goes to The Queen Mary, made with yellow heirloom tomatoes.

Southern Culture Kitchen & Bar – this traditional southern restaurant sits just outside of downtown and is well-known for its Bloody Mary bar and bottomless mimosas. Guests can choose from a variety of mixes to make their Bloody Mary just how they like it. Champagne more your style? $12 bottomless mimosas will keep the party going well past the lunch hour.

Nose Dive – if you're in the South and you don't order grits are you even brunching? At Nose Dive, they take that mentality to the max with their build-you-own, endless grits bar. Located on Main Street, this restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and is perfect for big groups.

Eggs Up Grill – two locations, downtown and off Woodruff Road, give diners double the opportunity to catch brunch at this casual joint. Known for their conventional breakfasts, stuffed full with eggs and meat, this family-friendly diner is the perfect place to bring the entire crew.

Passerelle Bistro - a casual bistro set in Falls Park on the Reedy with a French-inspired menu, Passerelle Bistro is a Southern favorite with a twist. Brunch is available Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and offers one of the best views of downtown Greenville. Grab a specialty brunch cocktail or mimosa to enjoy with your omelette, croissant or other french pastry.
