At Charleston's Cafe, fried green tomatoes might very well outpace fries as the sandwich-side of choice. The family-run restaurant has inundated their breakfast and lunch menus with Southern flair, transforming classic dishes into homages to the low country. Rather than the traditional eggs benedict, the café fries its eggs instead of poaching them before piling it with fried green tomatoes, bacon, and homemade hollandaise sauce atop french bread. Completely original creations include several potato casseroles named after local islands that stack potato slices ("chippers") with vegetables and eggs. Along with these mainstays, weekend seasonal specials allow chefs to exercise creativity within the theme of a specific time of year. Once October rolls around, plates of pumpkin pancakes arrive at tables decked in candy corn and laced with a ghoulish grin.
As the sun rises higher in the sky, the kitchen shifts gears–slathering sandwiches with their signature Cajun mayo sauce, a cayenne-spiked condiment that has earned the respect of the Food Network's Hungry Detective. The show also noted the café's communal element, remarking on the ease of its guests and the charming sense of hospitality that radiates from each staff member and gives them the power to pinch cheeks with their minds.
