Lost Dog Cafe & Folly Beach, Charleston

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!

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.
