Hey, Greenville. We need to talk. It’s about something serious… brunch.

That’s right, the best meal of any mid-morning or early afternoon. We asked y’all on Instagram, if you had friends in town for one day – where would you take them for brunch and what’s the one thing you’d say they *had* to order? 

With the help of your recommendations, we put together a roundup of weekend places to enjoy some great sunrise sustenance. ☀️
