Foodie Friday: The Park Cafe

Happy Friday, friends! Last Sunday, I headed over to the Park Café on the Charleston Peninsula with a group of my friends for brunch. I’ve heard great things about this spot before, but I’d never been, so when my friend Allison from Charleston Charmed suggested we all meet up, I was excited!

First of all, The Park Café is tucked in a cute Charleston neighborhood, only a block away from Hampton Park. It’s so cute inside—bright and open with lots of natural light. It is a smaller restaurant, so arrive early or be prepared to wait a little while for a table.

I’m a pretty serious coffee drinker, so I ordered the Siddartha, a caramel and almond milk iced coffee. It was delicious and not too sweet (I don’t like super sweet coffee drinks).

To kick off brunch, we ordered a plate of Æbleskiver to share. I had seen these made on the Great British Baking Show, and I’d equate them to a pancake ball (with a little more sweetness) and they were served with a fresh fruit compote.

For my meal, I ordered the Creamed Chipped Beef Toast with house-made roast beef and a poached egg (almost the only way I’ll eat eggs out anywhere) with a side of breakfast potatoes. It was all delicious! Like I said, all the ingredients tasted so clean and wholesome. I loved that I didn’t leave brunch feeling stuffed or miserable!

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend The Park Café! They’re open from 7am-3pm M-F, and 9am-3pm for brunch on Saturday & Sunday. They also have fun pop-ups in their parking lot from time to time.
