Tucked next to Whole Foods in Mt. Pleasant, Betty’s Eatery is a breakfast and lunch joint, with a promise to “take you back to your grandma’s kitchen.” The extensive menu is displayed behind the counter and starts with breakfast on the left. The space itself is bright and cheery, with yellow banquettes and 1960s hits playing overhead. On the breakfast side of things, the Croque Madame gets a Southern makeover. Two slices of brioche are filled with Swiss cheese and a massive portion of thin-sliced ham. This grandma replaces the nutmeg-dusted bechamel with a deluge of salty Mornay, then tops it with a sunny side up egg. The roast beef sandwich is made with “Betty’s oven-roasted beef” and is better than most delis. The thin-sliced, rare meat is well-seasoned and served on sourdough bread spread with tangy horseradish and creamy dijon. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Winter 2019)
