Amazing food and great outside seating area with a tranquil water fountain. It is tough finding a vegetarian restaurant in the Charleston area. Yet this one more than makes up for the lack of supply. Great tofu-stuffed wraps and delicious water infused with fruits or veggies (I have had strawberry and cucumber water there - it varies based on the chef's preference). Black Bean provides a much needed respite during my days downtown.
Thought this place was really good when I first tried it, a little pricey but the portion was big. Tonight, I got a Black and Blue that was quite small and had only a couple of pieces of chicken. For $9?? My son had the Turkey Bacon which was bigger and not skimpy on the meat. I live in the neighborhood, but don't think I'll be back anytime soon. Dellz has way bigger portions for less $.
BB Co is too expensive and skimpy on ingredients.
I don't see any reason for James Islanders to go there instead of Barberito's - BB Co. doesn't even offer Avocado as an ingredient! They only have Guacamole, which Barberito's also offers.
Great food, but definitely not for the cost conscious.
Black Bean Co. disappoints with its rice-heavy + spring mix-heavy burritos that are skimpy on the main ingredients like Black Beans and Guacamole. Also: last week I ordered a burrito that didn't mention sprouts on the menu - but I got them. Yucky discovery to make when you get it back to the office.
Since I discovered Dellz Deli last night, I won't be going back to the Black Bean Co.
A previous reviewer hit the nail on the head - BB Co. costs more than Dellz, gives skimpier portions, and is simply not as good.
More authentic what? Wraps?
Wow- Chef Ellis really serves great wonderful organic food- good for the soul! He cares totally about being LOCAL- using Thackery Farms- a local farm and goes out there daily and farms himself- he cares about his customers and that is his primary concern. If you are vegan or not- stop in for a treat for the best organic tasty food around and good for your wallet too! Can't wait for the James Island location- more yummy food for the area-
If you like Black Bean Co. (which is decently good) you will LOVE Dellz Deli, wayyyy more authentic, much much better, yummier food. The wraps are twice as big. The price is much less. The service is much friendlier and much better. I used to order from Black Bean Co. at least 3 times per week, although they are nice, I feel their efforts are for franchizes and expansion, not for serving their customers. Dellz is devoted to serving her hungry customers yummy food that is great for them, not expansion and $$$$. Black Bean is pretty great yes, but Dellz blows them out the water. True story.
Went in today after recommendations from 2 different people. Food IS AWESOME. Just unbelievable. THe people working there were EXTREMELY FRIENDLY and was a pleasure to talk to. The pumpkin pie was DELICIOUS beyond anything that we had hoped for. THANK YOU for recommending. No doubt that we will be there if we are ever in Charleston.
Surprisingly delicious. Somehow when I make healthy food at home, it doesn't taste nearly as good! And it takes longer. I ordered online on Sunday night - the site said the food would arrive in 45 mins. It came in 20!
Great to have a healthy delivery option with easy online ordering (add/remove ingredients) - just like larger cities!
This place is a new fave.
Awesome food---great, friendly service. The gyros are amazing but the cookies blew my socks off--and they are vegan! wow!
Chef Grossman your zucchini muffin is the bomb, thanks.
Fantastic!! Excellent service splendid food... The zucchini muffins are out of this world.
Thanks Black Bean Co.
BY FAR my favorite grocery store in Charleston. They have the freshest meat and produce in town. I know that anything I buy there is going to be of the best quality.
Vegetarian and health friendly, fairly priced, fun tastes throughout the store, fresh produce, an amazing cheese selection, good variety of fresh bulk spices and fresh wholesome selection of fish and organic meats (if that's your pref) Add free cooking classes ample parking and in town location, and that adds up to a review summarized by "thank goodness I found it when I moved here!"
Just had lunch there and the food was good. Fried shrimp were some of the better I've had and fish stew was average. Fried shrimp are $14.95, but you'll have to give them $1.50 more if you want some fries. I'm aware that you're going to pay for the organic ingredients, but $20 crab cake and $10 slice of chocolate cake on the menu for lunch...come on! Good atmosphere and friendly service, but you might want to bring about $30-$40 if you're having lunch for two! I wish them well, but they need to work on the pricing.
