The Flipside Cafe

3150 Hwy. 21 N., Fort Mill, SC
Award: Best Grits
Year Won: 2015
Pick: Editor's Pick

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.
