You should have known better. What do you expect from a place named Cafe Kronic?
I hope you're feeling better.
I agree with KristinB! It's not worth your time or money. The food I got was horrible, and didn't even have half of the ingredients that it was supposed to. The employee behind the counter was completely rude, and the owner didn't bother to do anything about it. 0 Stars!
I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at Laura Alberts. Not too long ago, I met my girlfriends for a glass of wine. They have quite a selection, but what I enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere and ambiance. I will be back for their Wednesday dinner! The menu looks fabulous.
I like C&B very much. I liked it the moment I stepped foot through the door. They offer prepared/packaged food and drinks I can't find elsewhere. Prices may be higher than your standard market or cafe but consider one thing. One being the "gourmet" aspect. One may pay higher prices for higher quality or rare ingredients. And, it's a price I'm willing to pay because I like it so much!
My personal favorite things is their house made hummus, orzo and lentil salad, and a mocha frappe with a dash of cinnamon! I've yet to try their brunch . . . maybe tomorrow.
To ddiey: The owners' number one priority is customer service. They want their staff polite, knowledgable, and genuine. I highly doubt anyone working there (least of all in their charcuterie section) would make a guest wait 30 minutes for anything! Period. I, however, can imagine "no cashier available" but I chalk that up to you most likely not being a frequenter of C&B . . . and not knowing how the layout works. When in doubt, pay at the espresso bar! I only hope you gave your feedback to a manager and didn't rely soley on the internet. Dearest ddiey, I hope you give C&B another shot. :)
My only complaint is no wine or beer on Sundays.
And to anyone reading this articale and/or the comments, when in doubt, pay at the espresso bar!
LOVE Caviar & Bananas!!! I have eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner there (sometimes all in one day)... Everything is made fresh in-house, staff is friendly & helpful, they have a great and reasonably priced wine selection, and the variety is great for a group of friends/family. It's such a convenient place and they also deliver (free downtown which is rare)! The prices reflect the quality, but if you don't care about that, just go to a chain place to eat. C&B is a must if you live in Charleston or just visiting.
Way too overpriced!!!
I can appreciate what they are trying to do... emulate a certain New York establishment but they have too much going on and not enough influence on the basics. A half hour to get a sandwich made, no cashier available and a premium price tag. Go down to Bull Street to get a better sandwich with no frills.
Ted's rules. I've been going here for years and even when I was a student, and they knew it, they still treated me like a real person. They always make an effort to have affordable bottles of wine featured at their tastings. Their food is fresh and well prepared and Ted is cool. A friend and I were out at Poe's in the middle of the day once and so was he. He recognized us from coming into the shop and, even though he was sitting at the 'outside' bar and we were inside, he bought us some drinks (delicious Delirium Tremens, actually).
Stopped in recently for a sandwich. Ordered the Italian w/ hot cappacola.
Usually when ordering a sandwich I expect to be disappointed, but not the case here.
Everything was tasty with a good amount of meat and cheese, the greens fresh...simply a very good sandwich. If they made hoagies/subs or if they remain consistent, I will upgrade to 5 stars. Thanks for the good service Ted. Keep it up.
Most definately recommended!!!
Ted's is know for incredible sandwiches and prepared foods, but don't forget about their butcher counter offerings! There's nowhere else downtown - and very few places in Charleston - where you can get the quality beef, all-natural chicken, pork and more that Ted's offers. Plus they make their own pancetta, roast beef and sausage and smoke their own salmon & ribs on the Big Green Egg that sits out in front of the shop. A great locally owned establishment for foodies!
blinding fluorescent lighting, average service, odd breakfast menu with no fresh fruit or typical fare. average food
Healthy, tasty, fresh and local, excellent food. Easy in and out breakfast and lunch. Convenient for families. So many good things about this place.
ok, so we gave 5 loaves (in Mt P) another shot this week for dinner. we were completely pleased. We were greeted promptly, had a pleasant waitress, and i got to have my fave--the 1/2 reuben with turkey pastrami and the sald with the asparagus/goat cheese/eggplant fritters. Teh two of us got salad & 1.2 sanwich with (non-alcoholic) drinks for $21. I think i licked the white off of my plate. thank you for restoring our faith in your eatery!!
I stopped to use the ATM machine and they wouldn't let me unless i purchased something. They need to take down the ATM sign. I won't go back.
I thank the City Paper for helping me find out about this place! Went there for breakfast this morning and it really hit the spot. It's in a very cute stand alone building and has a great atmosphere. Everything on the menu looked wonderful and included very fresh ingredients so it was hard to pick but we went with the eggs benedict over sweet potato biscuits that I read about here online and it was fantastic. We also got the Honey/Peanut Butter/Banana French toast which was a delite on the taste buds. It came with 2 large pieces of bread both were very thick and had a unique taste to them. I will certainly be back to try other breakfast and lunch items on the menu!
I've eaten at five loaves regularly, and my meal there last night with a few friends indicated nothing's changed... The price is EXTREMELY cheap when you consider the quality of food you're served... I've paid double for lower quality food on more than one occasion. I just wish the old millennium music location was still open so I could eat there for lunch more often!
My experience was okay initially. I stopped by for a drink or two and the house rum was terrible. I had to request another drink. After two drinks, I cashed out and paid my tab by credit card. Two days later I had another fraudulent bill on my credit card account for over 50 bucks. Needless to say after the owner said to me that I was asinine for calling my bank to find out how to proceed I will never return and for thinking his staff would steal. Oh well, I will never return!
Three of us had lunch there Sat, Apr 10, while visiting the Charleston area. Two of three had great food, one said "it was OK". We're from the DC area and really appreciated the fast service, hot food, and friendly atmosphere. We were in and out in less than 45 min yet we did not rush nor feel rushed.
I went for growler hour yesterday and it was a little overwhelming. The was no order. I sat outside, ordered a beer, waited about 20 mins, it never came. Got up, and went to get my growler filled. They filled it, I brought it home and realized that it was only filled 3/4 of the way up! I was kinda disapointed after i just spent $17 for a growler fill and only got about $10 worth of beer. The idea is great, just way to disorganized. Not sure if I would ever go back...
Great little place for a relaxing and delicious lunch! Definitely worth your time wandering a few blocks off the more traveled path to try this place.
Who knew?! This lil downtown gem is a miracle at lunch or an early supper bite. We had the tuna and cilantro sandwich, and a Sullivan's crepe. Truly a palette pleasing experience... Friendly place. Nice vibe from all kinds of people and students. Not your normal restaurant, for sure. Will come back again...
