Driving over the bridge onto Folly Island you will instantly be overwhelmed with a beach town vibe. Roll the windows down and breath it in. It was lunchtime so that meant a visit to folly’s favorite place to grab a bite, the Lost Dog Café [106 W Huron Ave, Folly Beach, SC 29439]. I was astounded by the adorable nature of this eatery. Photos and memorabilia all about dogs lined the wall – floor to ceiling!
As amazing as it was inside, the day was just too gorgeous not to sit outdoors. The patio was so relaxing and our waiter was extremely attentive.
We loved listening to the birds and great music out there. The menu was full of great items and serves breakfast all day. We ordered a hot pretzel for an appetizer and it was fantastico!
Our meals were both superb. I went with southern style blt: fried green tomatoes, bacon, lettuce, and homemade pimento. It was absurd! So rich, fresh, and filling. It came with a generous portion of fruit which I was very thankful for. Jeff went for the blackened salmon wrap which was equally as tantalizing. Inside he had the excellently seasoned fish, a fried green tomato, crumbled bacon, lettuce, and Cajun mayo accompanied by a cucumber salad. When the waiter came with the bill he asked us if we would like some water to go. Water to go? I was taken aback, overjoyed, even. I am such a water drinker I’ll drain at least three glasses over the course of a meal, easy. I never leave the house without a bottle or two, so the offer for water to go is a dream, something I’ve never been asked before. I thanked him and we all had a laugh, what a great restaurant. We took the water to go, to go to the beach! Folly Beach was quiet on a cool afternoon. We had long stretches of soft powdery white sand all to ourselves.
We walked up and down the beach notices plenty of interesting conglomerate rocks.
Each rock was so different, with unique shells and designs, I’ve never seen anything like it! I wish we had more time to explore Folly, but it was a perfect spot to spend our last few hours in Charleston…until next time!
