Sausage, grits and biscuits are breakfast staples in Savannah, but why should these Southern-inspired dishes be reserved for just mornings? Fortunately, many local restaurateurs agree, offering delicious and hearty breakfast fare throughout the day. Those staying in the Historic District will love the simple, delicious menu items and personable service at Henry’s on Drayton Street. The unassuming, diner-style eatery has a large selection of traditional breakfast food, including the creamiest grits and crispest bacon in town. Other outstanding Downtown Savannah staples include J. Christopher’s and B. Matthew’s Eatery. Sunday brunch is a must in Savannah, and no place does it better than Driftaway Café, a seafood restaurant located in the historic neighborhood of Sandfly near Isle of Hope. Though you will need a car to get to Driftaway, it’s worth the trip for the restaurant’s incredible shrimp and grits and crab cake-topped eggs Benedict. If you don’t want to venture outside the Historic District for Sunday brunch, then try Soho South Café, which boasts fantastic food in a chic setting. For brunch any day of the week, head to River Street and sample the fare at Huey’s on the River, a New Orleans-style restaurant that specializes in Creole and Southern dishes. If you’re vacationing on Tybee or plan to spend the day frolicking on the beach there, don’t pass up the Breakfast Club, a popular eatery that has a loyal local following. Even vegetarians and vegans can partake in a delicious Savannah breakfast or brunch at the Sentient Bean, a hip coffee shop and eatery near Forsyth Park. Top o’ the morning to y’all!
