Re: “Black Bean Co.

Surprisingly delicious. Somehow when I make healthy food at home, it doesn't taste nearly as good! And it takes longer. I ordered online on Sunday night - the site said the food would arrive in 45 mins. It came in 20!
Great to have a healthy delivery option with easy online ordering (add/remove ingredients) - just like larger cities!
This place is a new fave.

Re: “Eclectic Chef

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!

Re: “Ted's Butcherblock

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.

Re: “Parson Jack's Café

Love the fried mushrooms! Do think some of the girls need to check themselves before they put those shorts on though...

Re: “Sunrise Bistro

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.

Re: “Saffron

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.

Re: “Saffron

The veggie pita was awful...a few veggies with spaghetti sauce poured over it. Just tasteless for around $9.

Re: “Lost Dog Cafe

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. :(

Re: “Caviar & Bananas

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...

Re: “Laura Alberts Tasteful Options

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!

Re: “Café Kronic

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!

Re: “Café Kronic

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!!!

Re: “Café Kronic

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!!!

Re: “Café Kronic

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.

Re: “Café Kronic

Great food and really, really good coffee. New beans in from the local roasters at Charleston Coffee Exchange make the coffee extra yummy! Check out the French Roast for a balanced dark coffee!!

Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

I eat at Five Loaves pretty regularly because on a student's budget you can't find a better place. They always have changing specials and I usually get at least one special each time I go. The only bad thing about the place is that it is regularly packed, i.e. people waiting outside in 100 degree weather for a table.. However, the true locals know to go at a slow time (around 3) and you will never wait.
