A Day in the Low Country

4 STOPS | 124 MILES | 2 hr 47 min

Both Savannah and Charleston are culinary Meccas; between them is a paradise of good eats. Meandering up the coast, have breakfast at Blackstone’s Cafe (shrimp & grits, please!) and unique Gullah cuisine at Gullah Grub. Stop for fresh peaches and blue-ribbon pies at George & Pink’s produce stand and climax the day with an endless oyster feast at the incomparable Bowen’s Island.


Blackstone’s Café

A bare-table cafe near the waterfront in Beaufort, South Carolina, Blackstone's is a good destination for corned beef hash, grits, eggs, and a sticky bun.


Gullah Grub

Gullah Grub is on a mission to celebrate & serve the vivid creole cuisine of the Lowcountry's Sea Islands. A South Carolina regional-food best!


George & Pink

A vegetable stand as folksy as can be, George & Pink reflects the effulgent year-around harvest of Edisto Island, from melons & squash to sunshiny tomatoes.

Must Eats
Tomatoes, Melons, Sweet Corn

Bowen’s Island

At the end of a rutted dirt road in the marsh of Folly Beach, South Carolina, Bowen's Island is a ramshackle restaurant that serves a four-star oyster roast.
