Grits & Grind

Rise and grind! Grits and Grind serves breakfast every morning from their sister restaurant, La Cocina. So you get the most important meal of the day in a festive atmosphere, or out on the patio where you can soak up the sunshine.

Spell Restaurant Group decided to re-vamp their La Cocina Restaurant to create a breakfast space which they named Grits & Grind (breakfast grits, coffee grinds). Although this name makes perfect sense for a breakfast establishment, it has its origins in Memphis.

While the Spell Restaurant Group was knocking around names for their new place they took their Memphis roots (Brookhaven Pub & Grill) into consideration. The family was always fascinated with the Memphis Grizzlies’ “Grit and Grind” style of play on the basketball court and thought it would be a perfect handle for their SoWal breakfast place. That’s why the Grizzly bear is featured prominently on all Grits and Grind logos.

At Grits and Grind, you can count on every pot of coffee being freshly ground with high-altitude organic Tuscan Hills coffee beans and every glass of OJ being freshly-squeezed. Grits & Grind is one of the few breakfast places in our beloved beach town that has a ‘real deal’ liquor license; meaning, when you order a Bloody Mary – you can be sure you are getting actual vodka, and not that wine-based imitation nonsense that leaves you...dry.

The food is just as satisfying. Shrimp & Grits Maque Choux with shrimp, cheese grits, fried egg, and andouille Cajun sauce make good on the restaurant's namesake. Always a favorite is the Banana Bread French Toast served with maple syrup. Sure to please is Crabby Benedict featuring two all-lump crab cakes, sliced tomato, fresh spinach, two eggs and hollandaise sauce.

It is no surprise that Grits and Grind offers several South of the Border items. With La Cocina Mexican Grill and Bar and Grits and Grind sharing the same kitchen, the transition from Southern breakfast food to Tex-Mex lunch and dinner is a smooth one. Huevos Rancheros, Chorizo Sausage Breakfast Burrito, and Sombrero Omelets are popular items in this mix.

Leave with a cool Grits and Grind t-shirt, cap, or coffee cup…all emblazoned with the G & G Grizzly bear!

Grits and Grind breakfast is served from 7 a.m.-10:30 a.m. daily and is located next to La Cocina Mexican Bar & Grill in Seacrest Beach (just west of Rosemary Beach).
