First Timers: Pied Piper Eatery



We've been trying to expand our brunch repertoire of late, first checking out Sky Blue in Edgefield and then, this weekend, trekking over to Riverside Drive for a meal at Pied Piper Eatery.

For the second time in a month, we walked into a place we'd never been and found it packed (though our waiter did comment that this was one of the busiest days he'd seen). With no two-tops, we took over a large table and surveyed the pun-happy menu. I was craving breakfast, so I ordered the breakfast with two eggs, toast, sausage or bacon and grits or home fries, all for under five bucks) and couldn't resist adding on one pancake a la carte ($1.50)--someone was eating them near the door when we walked in, and I couldn't shake the sensual smell of syrup. My man went with one of his favorite things: a buffalo chicken sandwich. This one was done with exquisitely crisp chicken fingers and homemade blue cheese. It was crazy good. Next time I think I'll hit up the lunch menu as it offered a much broader range of delights--and gets extra points for a turkey reuben named after David Hasselhof.

Overall, we had a good experience. The room still feels a bit haphazard--it would be awesome if they could get some cozy booths in there someday--but the service was efficient and friendly. There were also lots of kids up in that piece (if you're into that kind of thing) so it might not be the best choice for those prone to hangovers and throbbing heads.
