Experience comfort food with a modern twist at Lulu’s Cafe, one of the newest and unique eateries
The theme matches the extensive menu - Southern classics prepared with a few creative curve balls. You can get Eggs Benedict on a biscuit or peanut butter and jelly on pancakes. Even the basic grilled cheese sandwich gets a facelift by adding bacon and tomato.
Lulu's also serves up more traditional versions of the classics for those with less adventurous taste buds, and the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner around the clock so it's never too early or late for whichever meal you are craving.
Breakfast is Lulu's specialty. Rather than making traditional omelets, Lulu's offers "scrambles" that are similar to omelets and packed with unique ingredients, like the Philly Cheesesteak scramble, featuring filet, green peppers and onions amid a sea of scrambled eggs, or the Green Eggs and Ham, a spin on the Dr. Suess classic featuring pesto, ham, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
Of course, you can still get the basic breakfast, like the two eggs any style with ham, bacon or sausage and grits and toast for only $3.95. There are standard breakfast sandwiches on biscuits or toast, plus pancakes, waffles, bagels and French toast.
But it's the unique dishes that set LuLu's apart from others, such as the Charleston Benedict with a crab cake or the Horry County Benedict with fried bologna on toast. Try the waffles with chicken fingers, an update on an old soul food classic, or the Elvis, featuring peanut butter and "naners" on French toast.
Lulu's also thinks outside the lunch box, starting with Lowcountry Egg Rolls stuffed with collard greens and country ham. Fried Pickles and Pub Chips are among the unique appetizers, as well as original soup and salad creations, including Lulu's Salad with grilled chicken piled on a bed of spinach with pecans, apples and goat cheese.
Sandwiches range from new-age PB&Js with fruit and nutella, Grilled Palmetto (not pimento) cheese, Fried Bologna, plus a Crab Cake and Shrimp BLT. Burgers also get an upgrade with the Wayward Winds (topped with chili, cheese, mustard and onions). Dinners get a bit more upscale, such as the Crab Cakes and Tenderloin Medallions.
Diners can wash it all down with an eclectic array of mixed drinks and flavored coffees, as well as a traditional ice cream parlor for dessert. It's also served in a relaxed, retro-cool environment that has the feel of a classic American diner with modern upgrades that match the tone of the menu.
