This gourmet restaurant is located at Myrtle Beach’s old Air Force Base, now known as The Market Common. There is an outdoor patio in front of the restaurant with a handful of tables for seating. On any typical day you can expect to walk by the café and see multiple dogs sitting outside with their owners, always being greeted with a bowl of water. It is a great place to attend for breakfast or lunch and experience their Belgian waffles covered with sweet Nutella and strawberries, or one of their savory crepes filled with chorizo and jalapenos.
