The Market Common in Myrtle Beach is famous for its upscale shopping, fine dining and unique recreational opportunities. But the multipurpose complex on the south side of town has also become known as a hot spot for the most overlooked and underrated meal of the day — brunch. Combining the classic day-starting dishes of breakfast with the middle-of-the-day favorites of lunch, brunch offers diners the chance to combine the best of both meals into one great dining experience.
Featuring more than a dozen restaurants in its main retail district, The Market Common boasts a handful of the best brunch places of the Grand Strand. For guests at The Breakers Resort, which is located about 5 miles north of The Market Common, who are planning to spend the day browsing the stores or enjoying one of the festivals held at nearby Grand Park or Valor Park, there's no better way to start your adventure than over a satisfying brunch service at one of these establishments:
* Crepe Creation Cafe: This unique eatery serves some of your favorite food combinations stuffed inside a hot, house-made crepe. From breakfast favorites like a Western Omelet or French Toast filled with fresh fruit and cream cheese to popular lunch choices like a Philly Cheese Steak or Pesto Chicken, Crepe Creation Cafe gives patrons a large selection of items to enjoy in a hot and thin French pastry. Crepe Creation also offers a nice variety of other dishes, like soups and salads, to accompany your crepe of choice, and you can wash it down with a tasty mimosa. Be sure to save room for the melt-in-your-mouth dessert crepes.
* Gordon Biersch Brewery & Restaurant: Beer for brunch? It's not as far-fetched as it might sound, especially since this popular brewpub also serves some of the tastiest food in The Market Common. On Sunday mornings and afternoons, Gordon Biersch offers some of its favorite regular-menu items, like its wide selection of flatbreads and sliders, with more traditional breakfast dishes, such as the Louisiana Creole Omelet filled with fresh shrimp, onions and peppers. The Sunday Brunch Bloody Mary is a drink and a meal in itself, and other adult beverages are always flowing at Gordon Biersch, with its house-made brews and full bar.
* King Street Grille: A sports bar for brunch? Even this dining taboo is fair game at The Market Common, where the Charleston-based King Street Grille goes the extra mile to give its patrons more reasons to cheer. Popular among sports fans on football weekends in the fall and college basketball lovers during March Madness, King Street Grille offers an expanded menu of lunch and breakfast items on the weekends. Grab a seat on the patio, a stool at the bar or a table in the main dining area while you root for your favorite team on one of the many big-screen TVs located throughout the facility. King Street's full bar serves plenty of liquid refreshments for folks looking to cheer over a few beers.
* Tupelo Honey Cafe: Put some South in your mouth at this regional chain, which offers farm-to-table dining with a creative twist. Serving brunch seven days a week, Tupelo Honey puts out a spread of its best breakfast and lunch offerings, plus some lip-smacking good hybrid dishes like the Shoo Mercy Shrimp & Grits and the Fried Chicken and Biscuits. Try a savory Shoo Mercy Omelet or the Seersucker Steak and Eggs with some Sweet Potato Pancakes or fresh fruit cocktail. Tupelo Honey's signature mimosas provide the perfect accompaniment to a tasty brunch and a great way to start your day.
Brunch at The Market Common is the perfect way for guests at The Breakers Resort to start their day.
