Breakfast at Mr. Rivers Breakfast Joint

Breakfast was a must on a Thursday morning, after a trip to Clemson SC for orientation. We happened upon this little spot in downtown Anderson SC, and after reading various reviews, we said let’s try it. It was not busy at the time, we were able to get a seat quickly. Reviewing the menu, it seemed as though the place had limited items. My wife ordered the Farmer’s Breakfast, which consisted of two eggs cooked your way, creamy grits or home fries, toast or biscuit and choice of sausage, country ham, or pecan smoked bacon. Now note, we don’t eat pork and my wife is on a gluten free diet due to allergy, so she opted for fresh fruit instead. As for me, I was daring and wanted to see if they could really do a Frittata, so I got the Veggie Fritatta with marinara sauce.



Veggie Frittata

Scrambled Eggs, Creamy Grits and Fruit plate

Beautiful plated arrangement, yet the grits that were creamy were the stone ground grits, which I thought was okay. My wife did not, comparing them to other creamy grits we’ve had on our travels. The Frittata was smaller than expected, a little salty, possibly because of the eggplant inside. It was also short the marinara sauce. Toast was not warm at all, which was surprising to me considering there were not a lot of customers in the restaurant.

Quaint place, yet was not sure if all the review and high praises were from locals. Our thoughts, it gets 3 out of 5 stars.
