I loved this restaurant. We sat outside and ate breakfast. The food was wonderful...especially the pumpkin and banana bread! The customer service was excellent. We will definitely be going back!
It's a good thing James Beard isn't alive to experience this "award winner." All hype. No substance. They spend more time on the logistics of filing busloads of tourists in and out than they do on their actual food. The biscuits are dry. The grits are bland. The food is overpriced. Not worth the wait even if there weren't a wait. It's the Hyman's of breakfast.
Is this place closed for good?
I love this place. So country looking, yet serving gourmet food, really. My favorite is the tomato wrap embracing sauteed spinach and cranberries, toasted pecans, and feta cheese. But everything is yummy and pleasing.
Fantastic breakfast. I had a poached egg over crab meat and a fried green tomato on an english muffin... I've been craving it ever since.
Awesome biscuits and gravy... be prepared for a short wait on weekends... well worth the wait :)
i have been in the restaurant business 35 years and there is nothing as frustrating as being busy , having people waiting for tables, and having "campers".
However, that's the business. These things happen and if you ask people to leave it is hard to beleive they will come back.
They lost these customers and with this economy i would be hesitant to lose any. If this restaurant is the one i am thinking of, it is large enough that something would have opened up for the people in the foyer.
Being semi-regular customers, my friend and I were having breakfast a few months ago at the Blue Rose cafe. We had been there less than an hour, had finished breakfast and were enjoying our coffee when the cook/manager came from out of the kitchen to tell us that they "don't usually let people stay this long". (There were two people in the foyer that we had not noticed) We were basically asked to leave. It was humiliating. I wrote them a letter and will not return to restaurant that values the bottom line more than the feelings of their customers.
Awesome food...shrimp & grits are especially good.
My wife and I frequent this place for dinner or some ice cream. Richard's staff is very accommodating, friendly, and eager to serve and socialize. The prices are excellent, and the sandwiches are very tasty. They were among the first in Olde North Charleston village to be a free WiFi hot spot. They even have a water dish outside for the doggies!
I love this little coffee shop! The first time I drove around Park Circle to look for a home, I stopped by this coffee shop and the owner served me and was so welcoming, that I felt that this community was the place for me to live. I moved to PC and two years later, Park Circle Coffee n more (plus the addition of the Doghouse- yummy hot dogs and veggie dogs too!) is the local Park Circle hangout for delicious brunches, excellent lunches, and gourmet dinners. This little eclectic spot is a must try place!
good hot dogs now that they expanded. cold beer too.
Best pimento cheese I've had in a long ass time.
strongly recommended, warm atmosphere and friendly staff (with wi-fi as well).. how can you beat that? don't miss out if you're in the area :)

If you ever have the need to go to James Island you need to stop here and get a lil pick me up!!! I am there every morning!!!
I stopped by for lunch last week. It really is located way back in the plaza. You can't miss it though. It's the nicely decorated building that sits alone in the back of the parking lot. The specials board listed freshly squeezed juices that you could have individually or blended any way you like. I grabbed a seat by the counter and looked over the menu. Most of the menu is dedicated to breakfast items. I went for the veggie burger topped with cheddar, with a side of sweet potato home fries. The veggie burger was a bit bland and needed some kind of sauce to make it stand out more. The sweet potatoes were very tasty. I noticed that they had a bread pudding on the specials board and I love some good bread pudding. Three little birds' bread pudding was amazing. The pear-raisin-almond bread pudding was covered with fresh blueberries, sliced strawberries, and fresh whipped cream. It was worth more than the modest three bucks they charge for it.
I'll be back to try some of their breakfast items.
My girlfriend and I just ate lunch at Blend and were blown away with the service and friendly atmosphere. I had the roast beef and boursine cheese sandwich and she had the seared tuna salad - I loved my sandwich and she said her salad was delicious. It seemed like a perfect neighborhood restaurant.
great little venue, good coffee and nice folks. Worth a trip to James Island.
Decent Southern fare for breakfast & lunch but it's usually too packed on the weekends to make it worth my while. Be prepared to wait or arrive early. Warning: parking lot is on the small side & fills quickly on the weekends. Enjoy most dishes I've gotten there but skip their shrimp & grits, though-too bland.
Reasonable prices for above par food, very relaxed atmosphere-this place is definitely worth a trip to Mt P. I've never had anything there I didn't absolutely love.
