If you’re looking for a down and dirty southern breakfast, come join us at Eli’s Table. Eli’s Table is a perfect place for a celebration as the atmosphere is unbeatable. Sit inside and enjoy the elegance or soak in the Charleston sun while dining on our back patio. Now for the important part: what to order.
Start off with drinks. Remember, this is your mom’s day so she is going to want to sit back and relax and sip on a delicious cocktail. An all-time favorite is “The Ultimate Mimosa”. This classic is not only delicious but is also extremely refreshing as it is made with fresh-squeezed orange juice, Grand Marnier, and sparkling wine. If your mom is looking to try something a little more adventurous, the “Bacon Bloody Mary” is a perfect option. Unlike your traditional Bloody Mary, this libation incorporates house-infused bacon vodka and local Charleston bloody mary mix. Looking for an option in between the two? Try the “Peach Bellini”. Your mom will love this bellini as it is made with sparkling wine, peach puree, and peach schnapps.
After a drink (or two), start off your meal with some shared plates. The “Fried Green Tomato Napoleon” is a great option as it is simply delicious. If the Fried Green Tomato Napoleon isn’t your mom’s cup of tea, try a salad. Our favorite salads are the “Roasted Beat Salad” and the “Half Wedge Salad”. After some appetizers, it’s time for the best part of the meal, the entree.
If your mom prefers something savory, the “Eli’s Breakfast” is perfect for her. This entree includes two eggs of any style, a choice of cherry wood smoked bacon or sausage links, grits or roasted potatoes, and a biscuit or toast. If your mom is more of a sweet type of gal, Beignets with a side of Berries & Citrus is a delicious option. Order a side of the “Sweet Potato” pancakes for the table as these are a fan favorite!
Toast! All Day
If you’re planning on joining us at Toast! All Day, make sure to get there early to avoid the line! Toast! All Day is known for its delicious drinks and breakfast options.
Mimosa’s are Toast!’s specialty and your mom is going to want multiple of them. Instead of ordering them glass by glass, we recommend ordering a carafe for the table. The classic mimosa is delicious and is extremely affordable as you can get an entire carafe for $14. If your mom wants something a little more adventurous, the Hawaiian mimosa is fabulous. Instead of orange juice, this mimosa is made with pineapple juice, rum, blue curacao, and bubbles. Get a single glass or make it a carafe for $20.
Your mom truly can’t go wrong with anything from this menu. Whether she’s in the mood for breakfast or dinner food, have no fear as our menu stays the same all day long. In order to celebrate your mom being the best, order her one of our most delectable meals: Steak and Eggs. This 8oz. grilled ribeye comes with two eggs of your choice. If your mom is looking for something to pair this with, we recommend ordering a side of home fries or fresh-cut fruit. Another great option is the Deluxe Stuffed French Toast. Order a single, or a double if you’re feeling ambitious, and prepare to be stuffed. This gem is made from a local bakery made cinnamon swirled currant bread, is stuffed with either peaches or apples, and is dipped in french toast batter, deep-fried, and topped with whipped cream. Talk about delicious food!
End your meal with an espresso double shot, or even Creme Brulee Latte to prepare your mom for the rest of the Mother’s Day festivities!
If you’re planning on cooking your mom breakfast in bed, join us for lunch!
There’s no better way to celebrate your mom than by taking her for some good southern barbeque at Queology. Que the drinks, with the “Mason Dixon” cocktail. This drink is an adult version of Arnold Palmer and is perfect for a toasty day! Made with both lemonade and sweet tea vodka, your mom will have the option to make it flavored if preferred. Another great option is the margarita with a twist: the Holy City Senorita.
In the spirit of celebrating, we recommend sharing some appetizers while your mom sips on her cocktail! Our nachos are out of this world and will certainly be plenty for a few of y’all! While you’re munching on some nachos, try some of our jumbo smoked wings. These bad boys are smoked and seasoned to perfection!
Although you all may be starting to get full at this point, make sure you leave room for an entree. Whether it’s a burger, tacos, sandwich, or platter, your mom will not be disappointed. Order a ½ order of baby back ribs and be sure to ask your server for a side of some of our locally renowned sauces!
