Nolia for Brunch- Reaching Potential

I heard that Nolia is now serving brunch on both Saturday and Sunday. I just had to give it a whirl. This place is coming alive and had a pretty good crowd. The bleak white surroundings have been replaced with lots of fantastic art hanging all over this very beautifully restored old home. Mrs G. had a very nice Mushroom and spinach quiche. The Godfather could not resist the Damn Yankee omelet as he is one. That's yankee not an omelet, just to be clear. This omelet is filled with swiss cheese and some damn good real NY Pastrami. Served with excellent home fries, it did not disappoint. You can just feel the growth that has occurred. The atmosphere is inviting, the menu has evolved. The brunch offers several Benedict's that sound very tempting. The dinner and lunch menu's both sound outstanding as well. I will be checking out these meals soon. I sensed the potential the first time I was here and now they are becoming that something special that I knew they could.

Hi Godfather....
Am enjoying Charleston and the beach right with guess who??? Foy, that's right...
And, he was showing me your site and regarding Nolia....where is it exactly? Might be a good idea to include Map w/write-up.
Look forward to meeting you and your erstwhile companion, Chase..ruff, ruff.

Hi Suzy,
The Godfather doesn't want to make it too easy. Anything worth while requires effort.
But hey, any friend of Foy's is a friend of mine so here you go. - Take good care of Foy now. Be gentle.
