Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day and these Myrtle Beach restaurants take that job very seriously. Fresh biscuits and homemade pastries, seafood specialties, pancakes, gourmet omelets and Belgian waffles are just a few of the items served at these breakfast restaurants along the Grand Strand. Here, I’ve listed a new place for you to try every day of the week!
