The Yolk, a beloved breakfast spot formerly located in Rock Hill, is now open in the space formerly occupied by Local Loaf at 7th Street Public Market in Uptown.

The breakfast and lunch restaurant will have a limited menu for the next week before debuting dishes like their fried chicken and waffles and chorizo chili topped with queso and two sunny side up eggs.

If you’re going to get one dish, order their popular “Two If By Land” – cheddar grits, two eggs, toast ($8). The grits are heavenly.

The restaurant is owned by husband and wife team, Greg and Subrina Collier.

Hours are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Subrina shared with the Agenda that up and coming chefs and food truck owners may do pop ups at the location for a month or so at a time. “We want to help people looking to try a brick and mortar location.”
