Lulu's Cafe

Just driving around in Myrtle Beach one day we passed by a little cafe called Lulu's that looked fairly new and seemed full of people.  We looked it up online and found some good reviews so we thought we'd take another chance and check it out for breakfast the next day.

there was outdoor seating but we arrived during the only 10 minutes of rain we had the entire trip.

We've mentioned before how difficult it is to find decent non-chain, non-buffet restaurants in Myrtle Beach.  If you're searching specifically for breakfast, its even harder. But we were able to locate two such breakfast gems on this trip.  The first being Lulu's, a 1950's style diner. Having opened only six months ago, they serve traditional American meals with a flair of Southern hospitality.  They also serve lunch and sometimes dinner, depending on the day and time of year. I hear sometimes during the summer they even stay open 24 hours!

With its cute kitschy 50's decor, you instantly feel transported back in time.  Bright colors mixed with black leather and chrome and an inviting little bar area.  The food wasn't anything particularly unique but it was very tasty and hot and served with a smile.  One thing kind of unique and funny was that everyone had a different mug for their coffee.  It was as if someone went through their kitchen cabinets at home or stopped at a flea market and randomly grabbed whatever mugs they could get their hands on. 

this mug was too hot to handle...literally... we requested another one

I had to have their biscuits and gravy, something I haven't had in a very long time.  It was super yummy! The soft buttery biscuits hiding underneath a mountain of creamy, peppery sausage gravy. So warm and comforting!

Superking went for the simple plate of two eggs sunny-side up with a couple pieces of crispy bacon and toast with a side of hot grits. Again nothing fancy or special but very tasty!

Its so nice to find a place like this at the beach.  Good food that's well-prepared and presented.  An adorable homey atmosphere.  And friendly helpful staff. Can't wait to go back for a visit next time we're in town!

look at those fluffy grits in the middle! Yumm!
