HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Looking for a meal to kick start your morning? This week WMBF News reporter Jenna DeAngelis visited two local spots best known for their breakfast: Chloe's Cafe in Conway and Locals Corner in Myrtle Beach.
Rebecca Murphy considers herself a regular at Chloe's Cafe.
"Definitely recommend trying their pancakes, and their omelettes are really good too," she says.
Good grub isn't the only reason she visits the Conway restaurant. "You just kinda feel at home, like you're eating breakfast in your own place," she says.
Murphy isn't the only one who approves of the cafe, this week the Department of Health and Environmental Control stopped in and scored the cafe a 93, an "A" rating.
DHEC did point out a few minor violations such as a stained cutting board, but Codi Talbott, an employee told me that cleanliness is a top priority at Chloe's.
"Anytime that we are ever slow we always are cleaning, we're wiping stuff down. We do a lot of sanitary stuff so all the things are washed properly. We try to do the best customer service. We know the rules and we try to follow them the best that we can," she says.
The two-year-old, family-owned restaurant, named after the owner's step-daughter, is well known in the area. Local officials such as police officers and solicitor's came into the restaurant and told me they often order food for their workplace.
Chloe's Cafe wears an "A" rating proudly on its front door.
A Myrtle Beach breakfast spot that's been around a bit longer, got a different drop-in from DHEC.
Locals Corner, on Seaboard Street, scored an 81, a "B" rating.
Restaurant owner, Benny, said off-camera that he's been around for 13 years and would never put the safety of his loyal customers in jeopardy.
The score did not include any critical violations but DHEC cited the restaurant for meat thawing improperly, a dishwasher working incorrectly and several risk factors that were corrected on the spot. Any other violations were corrected in two days.
Benny told me he is ready for DHEC to come by for a follow up inspection. He says he expects a boost from a "B" rating.
