Re: “Ladles Homemade Soups

Used to love Ladles (W. Ashley)... went yesterday and the soup was room temperature and very bland ("loaded" potato -- though they left off the "loaded" part, and lemon greek chicken). The staff was friendly, but very confused and were messing up everyone's orders (it's just soup and sandwiches!).

Disappointing.

Re: “Ladles Homemade Soups

In a word... Disappointing. The good. Friendly staff, Greek salad, sandwich. The bad. Dirty tables, food on the floor, room temperature soup, plastic bowls and utinsels, one third of their soup selections not available. On the soups we had... Loaded potato was bland. She crab was floury (yes, that's a real word). One can only deduct that the soups that weren't available on an early Satuday evening are the only ones worth trying. Won't bother visiting again. This was the Mt P location.

Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

From all standpoints: excellent!

Downtown cafe last Wed: great, fresh food for good value ie ultimate BLT, light potato cakes over spinach; soups are awesome....a varied menu; half/full portions available; dedicated wait staff, cool interior and location.

Really, a joy to discover! Order enough to take some home...

Re: “Purée Café

I love Puree and I am not a vegetarian. Granted, my husband hesitated to go in when he saw the baby items for sale in the window, but they have changed it up a bit and added more seating and the food cannot be beat. We have been back many times since that first visit and we are never disappointed by the food. The Tempeh Burger is devine!

Re: “Purée Café

I disagree that that this is a baby centered restaurant. Not the case at all!! This is one of my favorite places to eat! Everything I have tried is fresh and full of flavor! They even have adult beverages made from scratch that will blow you away! Whether you are a vegetarian or not, this is not a restaurant you want to pass by!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

visiting from north Indiana, we were very pleased with the bb co. !!! we had eaten several local rest. and were staying on folly beach and ate almost all to their rest. and we would have gone back several times to bb co. it was that awesome! the cleanliness, to taste, to service, my husband didnt want to try it, because it was "healthy alternative" but after eating a breakfast wrap, the best yogurt/granola on earth, we wish we would have found it sooner in our vaca!!! we left the next morning! we have been home for 2 weeks, and we are still missing our best breakfast ever!!! thanks for the hospitality!!!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Pretty darn good. And they deliver! The sides are inconsistant but the wraps are good. They use some sort of cubed up deli meat as their protiens and at first it can be a little off putting if you're expecting fresher meat but I have grown to like it. The dif kinds of tofu are what I normally go for anyway and they are great.
Could be a little less pricey but I'll deal.

Re: “Village Bakery

I live in the neighborhood .. Staff service is uneven & at times the Mgr is haughty as if she is doing you a favor by serving you .. Don't go here at busy time .. Food is fresh & tasty but expensive ..

Re: “Baguette Magic

Was introduced to this place a couple of weeks ago by a friend. Didn't even know it was there. I bought a chocolate croissant that was to die for. Had to get the apricot for later. Wonderful! The baguette we took home for dinner was the best I've had in a very long time. My French mother, bless her soul, would have loved this place. Also, the customer service is lovely and refreshing.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Really tasty. I mean it, I enjoy their food. My problem is it is overpriced. I wish they could cut their prices by $2 across the board. As-is I almost never eat there

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Never consistent with food or service. Service is always rude. Always leaving something off especially on the salads. Gives a lot of greens but never enough toppings and for $10.80 let's get real. Would love to eat there again but being let down time and again I not worth getting angry every time!

Re: “Ted's Butcherblock

Ted's is off the meat rack. Excellent offerings from the butcher counter along with wines and cheeses. A sandwich never disappoints but am looking forward to a dinner there soon.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

While the food is good, they are extremely inconsistent. For example, on more than one occasion, I have ordered a spinach wrap and received it with no spinach. Also on more than one occasion I've ordered a Strawberry Fields salad and received it with no strawberries! When I order kids meals for my kids, they give me the drink that goes with it less than half the time. It just seems to me that there is an extreme lack of training that affects the quality of the food and service.

Re: “Baguette Magic

Today we had breakfast at Baguette Magic. We tried an almond croissant and the bacon, egg and cheese on brioche. Delicious! But the best was yet to come --- we took a baguette home with us. The bread was so good that we scrapped tonight's dinner menu and had bread and cheese instead. The baguette was indeed "magic".

Re: “Laura Alberts Tasteful Options

Close drive from airport. Friendly and outgoing staff knowledgeable on craft beer and wine. A quaint gourmet cracker-barrel (shop and eat: half wine/beer shop, half southern cafe)! Modest but stellar beer selection in back. Growler and bomber fills. I definitely will be back!

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

Not sure what happened to this place..I heard the old owners left and there's a new ownership in place. Really miss the old ones! The place is filthy and kinda ghetto now, the food dropped dramatically in quality, and got way more expensive! Not sure how these guys are making it..

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

I don't know what some of these people are talking about. I think the food and service is great. My only problem is the price--I don't want to pay 22$ for two sammies and two drinks. Also my BF has celiac's disease, bring back the gluten-free options! The "hipster/punk" guy has always been helpful and respectful to me.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

Wow! Really a shame to see such a great spot go to hell and a handbasket so quick. You can't really pin that on anything other than new personnel. I lived around the corner from there a few years ago and it really felt like a special time and place. The owners were very involved with the neighboorhood and were always trying new things. Ahhhh for the glory days.
Just a side note: I'd rather have the old owner make my food with his feet than the angry hipster/punk rock guy. Hygiene man

Re: “Sunflower Café

New to this state. Best hidden strip mall I have ever had the pleasure of going too. I started off by stopping for a Great Bloodymary next door, and ended with the most scrumpdillious eggs Benny I have ever tasted. customer 4 LIFE.
