Their insanely strong cold pressed coffee is pure rocket fuel. The crepe spinning guy (?) made us a tasty turkey, basil, and spicy chipotle treat with thin sliced apples. Fun place to hang out and chat. Highly recommended, and close to King and Broad Street. But beware of the cold pressed coffee... not for weaklings.
Don't bother. Coffee was ok, but our bagels for our bagel sandwiches were stale as can be. They were advertised as New York bagels... tasted like they took 2 weeks to get here from NY.
Tasty! Their breakfast and lunch crepes are fresh and healthy. Their ultra-strong local cold pressed coffee is addictive – perfect for a hangover. Very close to everything downtown. Highly recommend Queen Street Grocery and Crepes. Helpful wine and beer selection as well. Worth a try, on foot or via bike.
I had an outstanding chicken Caesar salad here.
Hard to find, but worth the effort. There's more than coffee...Good healthy food!
Bluerose cafe is awesome. Great fare, good local ingredients, and nice specials.
Friendliest staff in town.
Given my wonderful experiences there every time, I have a hard time 100% believing the first poster's account of things.
Bluerose has attracted quite a following, based on word of mouth alone.
This sweet little bistro offers delicious food and a comfortable atmosphere. We've eaten there at least 6 times already and loved most everything: the spicy shrimp sandwich, pasta salad, the quesadilla and the quiche are just some of our favorites. No miss out on this soon to be favorite local spot!
They serve up some truly tasty stuff at lunch time here. Great salad like the Daniel Island which you can add perfectly grilled seafood to. Or the yummy pasta with shrimp and scallops or crabcake openfaced sandwich. Also great sweet tea and chicken salad on croissant for old school perfection. Interesting drafts and wines as well.Can't imagine brunch could be a disappointment buthaven't tried it yet. Only disappoints were average tuna and shrimp and grits.
Wonderful staff who's charm still cannot offset the steep prices commanded by the "who do they think they are" owners. If you have money to waste paying a 40% premium for basic food then you may have found your Xanadu in this establishment.
While the food is generally "good" the drinks leave something to be desired. Alcoholically impaired cocktails are the rule of the day with prices rivaling if not exceeding those of the worst of the pretentious downtown clubs. The Parson Jack's experience can be summed up as watered down drinks served with edgy attitude by a socially unattractive and inept staff adorned in misguided jail bait uniforms.
Have new owners taken over the restuarant? Today we paid $4.29 for a BBQ, one third of the meat we have always gotten
prior to now. Asked if they downsized the portion of meat waitress replied "that is how much I was told to put on a bun" We have always gotten our money's worth there, I doubt
we will go back again. Very dissapointed I supposed the
great hamburgers you used to have have now gone to a much
smaller size also.
I have found this to be a nice little gem nestled a couple of blocks from the courthouse. In addition to the wonderful crepes and salads, they also have sushi and sandwiches in the back coolers. Makes for a quick lite lunch away from the hustle and bustle.
Small portions but pretty good food. Very good service and cute atmosphere.
Yum, yum, and Yum! This little place, tucked away in a back corner of a strip mall type place, next to Village Tavern, is a jewel. Have been 2 times, and was satisfied completely both times. The most recent visit included a wonderful salad of baby greens, asparagus, goat cheese, & topped with eggplant 'fritters', and accompanied by a 1/2 sandwich of the (turkey) reuben. I could have licked the pattern off of th eplate if there had been one. Try it, you wont be disappointed!
The best chicken salad I have ever had in my life, and the families who run the place couldn't be nicer people!
The best breakfast in Charleston-from a very picky eater!!!! Delicious shrimp and grits!!!
I love Bull Street Gourmet. It is a great corner store where you can pick up a coffee or delicious, moderately priced lunch. The wine selection is very nice and Justin, the owner, is very knowledgeable. If I lived closer it would be my daily hangout.
Unique deli with quality produce and fresh ingredients everyday. Also carry hard to find groceries.
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.
