Skillets Café was established in 1993 as a small, family-owned and operated breakfast bistro, catering to breakfast customers at the south end of the island. After a fire destroyed an adjacent building, also causing damage to Skillets, the café shut down for nearly two years. In March of 2002, Skillets reopened. Now Skillets is located in a much larger and more attractive, free-standing structure with indoor/outdoor seating in a relaxed setting.
Because of the popularity and demand of our breakfast menu, as of October 2007, Skillets is now serving breakfast daily.
Owner, Amie Baima, local resident since 1977, can be seen seating customers, bartending or serving up delicious meals. Baima has had a long relationship with the food industry on the island, opening and operating Just Pasta and The Coligny Bakery and providing such services as Corner Market Catering and Hilton Head Wedding Cakes. Amie holds a food science degree from Winthrop University and received a culinary degree from Johnson and Wales.
