Sunday Brunch Charleston for Timid Daughter

Looking for up to date recommendations on Sunday brunch in April -- taking DD to theatre matinee on Dock Street -- and need someplace "not yukky" for brunch in vicinity. She loves SNOB (no brunch there though), tolerates High Cotton (but didn't cotton up to their brunch menu), enjoys Mustard Seed and Boulevard Diner to give you an idea of her palate adventure level. Hominy Grill is too far away I think. Any suggestions? I, of course, love odd things.

  1. I'm not sure exactly if it's in the vicinity, but Tristan is supposed to have a nice brunch, we're going down for spoletto and have made reservations. Havn't actually eaten there so I don't know. I have been to 39 Rue de Jean and everytime it's been good. It's your basic french, but you can go to their website and they have a menu, I know they have brunch. Poogan's Porch is supposed to have a good brunch.

    1. My standing brunch rec for downtown is Tristan. You can order off either their brunch or standard lunch menu, which means you have a LOT of options. And the quality of their food is always top notch.

      1. Terrific suggestions -- never thought of Tristan's where I haven't been. Both menus have been forwarded to DD, so hopefully she will find something she likes. I naturally found plenty that I wanted to try!

        1. The Mills House, a block away, has a great kid friendly brunch and the Barbadoes Room is very comfortable.

          1. In my way-long-ago youth, I managed the Barbadoes Room! I well remember spending Sundays facilitating brunch.

            Fond memories of a lovely space in a gorgeous city. I'd be so happy to hear an update on the place.
