John Nolan, of Greenville History Tours, sure does know how to eat well! We had a chance to go on his newest breakfast tour and left with full bellies and a little more knowledge about our city. I love these tours because it's rare that I get to me a tourist in my own town all while eating great food.
We hit three breakfast spots in town during the tour - Famous Toastery, Biscuit Head, and LeGrand Bakery. Famous Toastery served an avocado benedict with grits which was so different and delicious. At Biscuit Head we enjoyed the most unique meal of the day, a mini biscuit with Coca Cola braised collards, roasted tomato, local fig, crispy jalepenos, poached egg, and smoked chevre. I love how creative Biscuit Head is with new specials and locally sourced produce. We ended the tour at LeGrand Bakery, an authentic French bakery, where we tried brioche, a chocolate croissant, and palmier. I've never met a carb I didn't like and these pastries were perfection!
The Greenville Breakfast Tour starts this month and will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30–9:15 am, year round. Check out John's other offerings at GreenvilleHistoryTours.com.
