Hidden under a bunch of trees in front of some train tracks on a side street, you’d probably never know Yellow Jacket Social Club was here. This divey spot isn’t just a great place for a low-key hang in the shade - they serve a surprisingly great brunch, with out-of-this-world shrimp and grits. Get the frozen mimosas if you’re looking to start the day off right.
