On the menu: omelets, pancakes and other breakfast standards; American-Southern classics like shrimp and grits; burgers; quesadillas; and assorted salads and sandwiches. There's a beer and wine menu, which includes bottomless mimosas. Breakfast will be served all day, which means you can check out the Brown Sugar and Caramel Bananas Foster French Toast anytime.
As for the decor, it leans toward diner-classic: floor-mounted stools, red-and-white — and, if the website is any indication, buxom candy-striper servers. (A company press release describes the atmosphere as "an environment of carefree timelessness which delivers an overdose of visual and epicurean stimulation while drowning its guests in charm and affection." So, uh, yeah.)
The diner will occupy the space left vacant by Mudbone's Swamp Shack at 7949 Broad River Road — the first of eight planned locations for the restaurant, according to its website. It'll be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Chickadees has its grand opening on Monday, Dec. 16, at 5:30 p.m. Join the Irmo Chamber of Commerce for a ribboncutting followed by champagne and appetizers from 6 to 9 p.m.
