The BEST vegetarian/vegan/gluten free joint I've ever been to. I literally could eat the "Snobby Joe" every single day for lunch. Also, check out the Jazzy Pizza.
Went expecting to highly dislike this place (NOT a vegetarian) and left there in love! I can not get enough of their portabello burger. Their salads are all good - I tried them all at this point. I actually feel good about what I ate when I leave and not my usual "Ugh should not of eaten that". This is a well needed break from my usual dining and I try to go at least twice a week lately. I recommend their brunch to everyone!
I really like the spot. They have great food and a terrific atmosphere.
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!
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!
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!!!
Five stars! This place has the freshest and most deliscious food! Not only is it healthy for you, but it tastes amazing!
Amazing food and great outside seating area with a tranquil water fountain. It is tough finding a vegetarian restaurant in the Charleston area. Yet this one more than makes up for the lack of supply. Great tofu-stuffed wraps and delicious water infused with fruits or veggies (I have had strawberry and cucumber water there - it varies based on the chef's preference). Black Bean provides a much needed respite during my days downtown.
Wow- Chef Ellis really serves great wonderful organic food- good for the soul! He cares totally about being LOCAL- using Thackery Farms- a local farm and goes out there daily and farms himself- he cares about his customers and that is his primary concern. If you are vegan or not- stop in for a treat for the best organic tasty food around and good for your wallet too! Can't wait for the James Island location- more yummy food for the area-
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.
Awesome food---great, friendly service. The gyros are amazing but the cookies blew my socks off--and they are vegan! wow!
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.
BY FAR my favorite grocery store in Charleston. They have the freshest meat and produce in town. I know that anything I buy there is going to be of the best quality.
Although I love the BB Co., they tend to be inconsistent with ingredients, and for the price you pay for their food they truly need to stay on top of things and deliver what customers order. I love that James Islanders can get healthy food on the go that's super tasty. Best wraps on the island since the Daily Dose.
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.
Vegetarian and health friendly, fairly priced, fun tastes throughout the store, fresh produce, an amazing cheese selection, good variety of fresh bulk spices and fresh wholesome selection of fish and organic meats (if that's your pref) Add free cooking classes ample parking and in town location, and that adds up to a review summarized by "thank goodness I found it when I moved here!"
I love going through the drive-thru at BBC, but the service inside the restaurant has been awful on the 3 occasions I've eaten there. I don't mind laid-back service, but in one visit, my waitress forgot multiple drinks, didn't put my order in at the same time as my dining companions', and wasn't at all apologetic. In an attempt to rush my food out, the kitchen delivered my "sautéed" fish almost entirely raw. To be fair, they did comp my meal - but I don't think I'll risk eating in, again.
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.
