BOB Awards Winner's Guide

The Flipside Cafe

Map3150 Hwy. 21 N.
Fort Mill, SC


Grits have become trendy. Restaurants throughout the South top them with shrimp and elevate them to be a culinary symbol of the region. But grits are simple. They’re just ground corn. And here, inside a strip mall cafe in Fort Mill, South Carolina, Jon and Amy Fortes serve grits alongside farm-fresh eggs and thick-cut bacon. They’re rich and creamy. They arrive in a supporting role, but with each bite, they quickly become the star of the meal.
