To Enjoy Ocean Views...

Look no further than Coast, Oceanfront Dining located at The Sea Pines Resort. Specializing in fresh, local fare, seafood, and creative cocktails, Coast is a beach-y brunch-goers paradise. Enjoy their spacious wrap-around bar just steps from the beach while you enjoy their extensive cocktail list and tempting menu. A few of our favorite picks to enjoy during brunch hours include their Coast Shrimp Salad Croissant, the Colossal Lump Crab Meat Melt, and the Lobster-Loaded Hush Puppies. Top it off with a delicious Moscow Mule or a Peach Mojito while you enjoy a calm ocean breeze with your friends or family.

To Brunch in Bluffton...

Make a trip to one of Bluffton’s most iconic eateries: The Cottage Café, Bakery and Tea Room. Consistently voted one of the "Best of Bluffton" and winner of numerous Hilton Head Monthly Readers’ Choice Awards, The Cottage is renowned for its extensive menu of baked goods and Lowcountry soul food alike. Enjoy their Sunday Brunch from 8:00AM to 2:00PM weekly. The menu consists of the best of their breakfast and lunch menus, and they always have exciting brunch specials. Look forward to items like their Shrimp, Bacon, & Potato Hash, the ‘Shrimp & Grits with Eggs, Y’all!’, and a great selection of eggs Benedict, sandwiches and wraps, and lighter options.
