Last weekend I was able to stop at Angel Oak Restaurant (my first visit) for brunch – and what a treat!   So if find yourself heading south out of Charleston on Highway 17 (and you aren’t ready to put Charleston cuisine behind you) – or perhaps you just visited THE Angel Oak, yes, the tree – then this is a stop I highly recommend.  The atmosphere was comfortable and sweet, the hostess was very welcoming, the brunch menu was nice, and if someone else is driving…  then I highly recommend the scrumptuous bottomless mimosas for $10 that were served in a pint jar.

 From their About Angel Oak link:

The approach at Angel Oak Restaurant is simple, to obtain the freshest ingredients that the seasons allow, and present them in a way that would best represent the area. The menu changes often to include what is in season. Our lunch menu provides people with fresh, quick, made from scratch food that is rustic and delicious. Dinner takes a more innovative approach to southern American cuisine. Whether you are looking to share a few appetizers over a bottle of wine, a country fried steak with a local beer, or want to explore one of our alluring culinary entrees, the menu at Angle Oak can meet all of your wishes. We encourage you to relax during dinner and try our daily wine flights or order a great wine by the glass or bottle. Angel Oak also offers a small select bottled beer list that will please any beer enthusiast. Make sure to save room for dessert, where the chef reflects on traditional southern style sweets that would cure any sweet tooth.
