New Myrtle Beach breakfast spot highlights new business openings in the area – Charleston Post Courier

MYRTLE BEACH As businesses continue to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic putting a strain on the local economy, Drift Eatery owners confidently decided to move forward with opening toward the end of 2020, and business has remained steady.

The breakfast and lunch spot, at 980 A-6 Cipriana Dr. in Myrtle Beach, has a menu featuring classic breakfast meals, like shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles, along with signature omelets and breakfast sandwiches. For lunch, the eatery offers dishes including soups and salads as well as grilled pork belly, ahi tuna and duck leg confit.

"We integrate the menu with different flavors and options that you may not see at other places," said Carlos Ramirez, an owner of Drift. "We try to manage the best quality of coffee thats available. We try to incorporate the brunch style with mimosas."

Drift opened in October, about seven months after the pandemic began to impact the Myrtle Beach area.

"We were a little nervous in the building to be honest, but at the same time, we were confident that we could get all that support," he said, adding many owners have been in the Myrtle Beach area restaurant industry for decades. Now, about three months into business, Ramirez said business has remained steady.

Ramirez said the restaurant focuses on three aspects: friendly service, quality food and being affordable.

"Being consistent is key," he said.

The setting inside the restaurant has a coastal theme, with blues and greens, as well as natural wood.

Ramirez said the owners are hoping to extend hours and offer dinner at some point later this year.
