Haven't had a bad meal yet. From their fresh crepes to the stacked Cuban sandwich are all prepared to order. Great selection of beer and wine. One of my favorite places to stop and have a good meal and a good laugh.
wow. i am cringing as i am writing this....see my other review on the page? I normally LOVE five loaves, everything is yummy and reasonably priced, but a I have to report a big fat BOOOOO & 2 thumbs down on your (lack of) service last night. Two if us walked in, about 7 pm on a Friday night, and yes, it was hoppin, as expected. Now, we honestly dont ever mind a wait for good food....but NOBODY EVER even acknowledged our presence!! We stood at the door, beside another group of 3 girls, for almost 10 minutes---never saw them get greeted either. So that's 5 people standing inside the door @ the Mt. P five loaves...if youve been in there, you know that 5 people standing at the door is pretty noticeable & obvious... We stood there almost 10 minutes, and nobody ever came by to say Welcome/Hi, or even something like "sorry it's crazy in here, it might be a few minutes". SUPER disappointed. Seriously, not ONE of the waitresses glanced at us, even when they came to the table right next to where we were standing, and the guy in the blue button down shirt at the bar seemed like he was so in the weeds he never even looked up anywhere in the direction of the door....
This is how you lose loyal customers!! W ended up over at Boulevard diner, where, even with 10 people waiting, we were greeted and our existence actually acknowledged. Might try 5 loaves again for lunch, but if that is how dinner service is run, i def. wont go back for dinner.....
Best crepes and Cuban sandwiches in the city. Home made spicy chipotle will clear your nasal passages. Cold pressed coffee is so strong I met Jim Morrison and Jimmi Hendrix on the same day. Their regular coffee could be better though. Organic wine selection is good.
This establishment is the only one in the Holy City deserving of the name "Recovery Room." Cold pressed coffee, Kombucha, and vitamin loaded vittles are the morphine of the liver battering lifestyle of Charleston. Honest music and even more honest conversation seal the deal as the misgivings of the late hours can be redeemed in the early ones. Great lunch spot, almost makes me jealous of those in walking distance. When voting your dollars, don't mind walking an extra street over.
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.
I agree, pretty good food and excellent desserts! I recommend the veggie curry and the chocolate cheesecake.
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!
