Sad to say, but Skans is closed now. This was a great local place, not too expensive, with great breakfasts. Like many other local hangouts, this one is history.

Can be found here! I had a specialty dish of Chicken Souse (Soup) w/ Johnny Cake. We also had Omelets & Grits and Corn Beef Hash/eggs/grits. Service was great and we got out for around $32. We recommend!

Easy to find among downtown shopping. Clean, fast service and reasonable portions. Can't beat prices. Basic breakfast fair with no frills but perfect quick breakfast before the beach!
