It is wonderful to see a locally-owned restaurant in Summerville serving healthy food options. Summerville needed this! On my visit, I had a tasty strawberry and field greens salad. The two who joined me for lunch loved their dishes, too. Looking forward to going back!
For a measly $12, Friday night dinner at Ted's is probably the best dinner you'll have on the peninsula in that price range.
Love the fried mushrooms! Do think some of the girls need to check themselves before they put those shorts on though...
Hopefully you'll eat there when the woman that owns the place is in a good mood. The 5-6 times I"ve eaten there she's either very brisk and unfriendly or friendly. The food is a 4-5. Too bad since John Island doesn't really have many choices for breakfast. Also she is the only server but you often just order at the counter. I never tip her since all she does is run the food to the table. I bet that bugs the heck out of her but she deserves it. If she had been nicer I would easily leave a buck. The customer always has the last say thankfully.
I love Saffron. It's not "precious" but honest value for the price. We got my daughters b-day cakes here many years (chocolate mousse cake) and we also love the veggie curry. The owner is a kind hearted person who gives to the community.
The veggie pita was awful...a few veggies with spaghetti sauce poured over it. Just tasteless for around $9.
What's not to love about Mosaic? The menu does have a lot of selections, but that's a great thing. The food is prepared in unique and delicious ways with a healthy Mediterranean under tone. The staff go out of their way to be polite, helpful and quick. I've been eating there over a year and frequently take out of town family and friends. And, they always want to go back! Hopefully, they'll put the Mahi Club back on the menu. Good God that was a good sandwich.
can't figure out where this critic is coming from, but we love this place.
mosaic has been our sunday brunch spot for a long time, but we recently tried dinner there & enjoyed it just as much. great drinks & service, nice ambiance, & the fare has yet to leave us disappointed!
I completely disagree with this review. My husband and I eat at Mosaic several times a month. We like that there are so many options on the menu, many of them unique. The prices are reasonable. We are always trying something new and have not been disappointed. I don't get the reference to the '90s. It's a fun atmosphere and the staff has always been courteous.
I was told it was the "best" well I guess I've been spoiled by Great Smoky Mtns food and service, because I was NOT impressed! Nothing to write home about. I think IHOP would at least have omelets. So far, Folly Bch has not impress us with their food? Very dissapointed. :(
Awesome food---great, friendly service. The gyros are amazing but the cookies blew my socks off--and they are vegan! wow!
I eat here for lunch at least 2-3 times a month, but it was a recent stop for brunch that brought out the 5 star rating... incredibly good sides and sandwiches available then.
For lunch, you can't miss on their sushi specials, a caprese sandwich (best in charleston!), or the spanish antipasto board...
My one critique is that they over-truffle everything. I like truffles, but both the truffled mac and cheese and the twice baked potato are overpoweringly strong in a bad way.
Regarding the 'overpriced' comments... they have a drink selection that does seem a bit overkill ($3+ teas are common), but I think the quality of the food easily exceeds it's price points...
finally made it to Laura Albert's for lunch. Food was awesome! I got the seared tuna sandwich. nice, thick cut of tuna, seared wonderfully, piled high with fresh tomato. side of asian slaw which i did feel was missing a little something but couldn't place it. also, this was a little expensive for a place i could come on the regular (good thing it was a work lunch), $13 for the sandwich, but def worth it!
A friend recomended this place to us when we moved over to JI. We go every weekend. Yummy coffee!
Just fyi about common sense: don't walk in there before they are officially even opened and bitch about them needing to hurry up or you're gonna be late. Makes you look like an ultra douchebag!
This is an awesome place!!! Every time I've gone there, the food and coffee were great! I recently took my boyfriend there, and he said the quality of the food was exceptional. The staff is very friendly, too! You definitely have to stop by if you are on James Island! Looove the pancakes!!!
I love this place!! Aside from being able to support a local business, owned and operated by a local business person, I have always found the coffee and food at Cafe Kronic to be fresh and prepared to order. What a nice change it is to not be enslaved by the food chains that adorn Folly Rd. And talk about locals supporting locals, they even have brunch on Sundays featuring local musicians. Keep up the great service, Kronic!!!
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.
Felt a responsibility to set the record straight for this Cafe'. I am a friend of the person with the user name MASTERCHEF. He just got fired from the Cafe' and when complaining about it told me and some others he was going to bash them on review sites. I was curious so looked. I think that it's wrong. He has some attitude problems going on even with some of us so I am sure it was probably why he got fire but I am not sure on that one. Anyway, just trying to hold down some foul play.
I love this place. Food is great and the owner is so nice and just lovely! They also have free WiFi so its a nice place to drink some coffee or eat your lunch with your laptop. I ate there today and the food was delish!
