109 | | When it comes to your breakfast, things can get real serious, real quick. Scrambled or fried? Biscuit or toast? Bloody Mary or mimosa? One thing that leaves no room for debate is the place to go to find the best morning meal in the Lowcountry. Big. Bad. Breakfast. Whether you’re hankering for a delectable skillet meal, loaded with eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, onion, potatoes and cheese, or one of the lower-key, higher-carb options like a Belgian waffle or French toast, look no further than 2664 N Hwy 17 in Mount Pleasant. Founded by James Beard Award winning chef John Currence in Oxford, Mississippi, Big Bad Breakfast has grown to 18 locations across the south, with the 19th opening soon. Having grown up in New Orleans, where food was a focal point in many folks’ lives, he was captivated with cooking from an early age. BBB is Chef John’s way of sharing his family’s passion with you! Each one of his locations are locally owned and operated. The Lowcountry alone boasts two of these establishments. To ensure continuity and adherence to the quality and level of service expected at a Big Bad Breakfast, each individual, whether running the floor, preparing the meals or serving the guests, is hand selected and thoroughly vetted to ensure that they are the perfect fit for such a task. There are numerous ways in which this brand is superior to the rest. Among them are quality ingredients, scratch-made food options and an exceptional level of customer service. Additionally, the convenient options of catering and online ordering make this an irresistible culinary experience that you won’t want to miss. BBB prides itself in using only fresh ingredients/ produce, locally sourced as often as possible. Not only do they whip their own butter and juice their own oranges, they also offer housemade Bloody Mary mix and scratch make biscuits every day! Customers rave about the warm welcome and outstanding customer service shown to every patron from the moment they enter the door. It’s one of the foundational principles that Kraig Houk, Mount Pleasant’s local fixture, along with Wayne and Julie Bumgardner, look for when building the team that surrounds them at their Charleston area locations.
