(MSP) - Grits

I grew up in the South and have grown to love grits. I know there are quite a few people who don't like them, but there are many who do. It is a comfort food for me. I'm looking for a place that serves them for breakfast or brunch.... actually, I could eat them anytime of the day so just someone who serves a good food and has grits on the menu as well.

So far I have tried the grits from Cheeky Monkey, Brasa and Craftsman. I am not a fan of the grits from Brasa, I think they are just a little too rich for me. Cheeky Monkey so far has the best grits with the butter and bits of bacon. Sometimes the mascarpone cheese can be overbearing, but otherwise it is good. I just went to Craftsman this last weekend for brunch and got theirs, I think it comes down to the same issue with Brasa's... just a little rich. I grew up on classic grits and not a big fan of these hearty, "gourmet" grits. I can make them at home (which I do), but it is nice to just go out sometimes and see be able to get a good meal.

*All my opinions. If you enjoy the grits in these places that is good. The food in these places I do enjoy, just speaking my opinion on one item.
