Weekend Eats: Daps

Happy Friday, friends!  We'll be spending the weekend touring Charleston with Mike's dad, and he liked the place I'm sharing with you today so much last time he was here that I know we'll be back.  Honestly, the only way I could bring myself to share Daps on the blog was when I knew that I would be back there soon.  Seriously, these photos are just making my mouth water.  This food is so delicious, and on top of that, the decor is so fun!
Daps opened on the Westside of Charleston peninsula earlier this year.  The team converted a sweet little historical house into a bright and airy breakfast spot that perfectly fits the neighborhood.  While it's in a pretty residential section, I've honestly never had trouble finding street parking (one of the things Charlestonians will tell you is clutch when going out and about).  While there isn't a parking garage or lot nearby, the spots in front of Daps are not "residential only" as many are in the area.  Plus, it's only a few blocks from Hampton Park, so one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend morning is to park at Hampton, walk down to Daps for brunch, and take a stroll around the park to burn off all those mimosa and pancake calories.
The first time we went to Daps (after following them on Instagram for months) was for brunch on Easter Sunday.  Fruity Pebbles pancakes seemed like a novelty that I had to try, and after giving up sweets for Lent, you know that was at the top of the list.  Well, let me tell you, they absolutely live up to the hype.  They're fluffy, sweet, cooked to perfection, and topped with honey butter - what else could you ask for?!
When you walk into Daps, you first order at the counter, grab your drink of choice, and take a seat with your number to wait for your food.  If you're wondering what to drink, I think the sign outside tells you everything you need to know: Mimosas. On. Tap.  If beer is more your style, they have a great local selection on tap, in addition to a full bar with lots of unique cocktails. 
Okay, now back to the food.  In addition to the pancakes (which I've now had a few times), I'm obsessed with their folded egg sandwiches.  Take a homemade English muffin, and top it with eggs, bacon, and a delicious melted cheese sauce - just yum!  If you're looking for a side to share, the hash is so good and comes in both half and full orders.  Try the "Big Meaty" with bacon, sausage, and country ham!  Honestly, you cannot go wrong at Daps!
Alright, hand me the syrup, I'm digging in!
