An excellent place to shop but I seem to have missed out on the wind tastings.
If you're into processed, flavored oils, then this is your place. If you're looking for cold pressed, unfiltered traditional oils, then you'll be disappointed. But I guess like most of the stores on King Street, they cater to the tourists. I've been able to find traditional oils (filtered) just as good in local grocery stores (not Whole Foods or Earth Fare). Oils are like wine, its really a personal preference.
Great products! I love their store and the service is great! Def. a must see while shopping on King! Try the 18 year old and the Black Truffle Oil!
Amazing work Rebecca does. Can't wait for the workshop!!
Don't worry, we're still here!
Nice to find, friendly, accommodating, huge selections all types of music... and even used CD DVD and VCR sections. They'll order what you can't find.
Alas, closed before I could try them.
Step back in time and be graciously welcomed into this wonderful corner grocery. Fine wines, meats and cheeses for that special meal....or maybe just picking up fresh bread and homemade soup for lunch...or maybe you've run out of milk and need to run in fast and pick something up....there is something for everyone. but, more than that, it is the wonderful feeling of community and time gone by that no other local retailer can provide. Burbage's is a must!
I love Bull Street Gourmet. It is a great corner store where you can pick up a coffee or delicious, moderately priced lunch. The wine selection is very nice and Justin, the owner, is very knowledgeable. If I lived closer it would be my daily hangout.
Unique deli with quality produce and fresh ingredients everyday. Also carry hard to find groceries.
18 Year Old Traditional Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic EVOO was great for dipping fresh bread and will always be in my kitchen. Was a great suggeston from Melissa store Manager. King Street needs more stores like this. Thanks!!!
Bark local. Dolittle's offers Charleston's largest selection of top quality pet foods. Use the self service dog wash and find out why it's all the buzz at the dog parks.
Good luck! Some good grilling rubs..
Loved the soda fountain and all the retro feel. And make sure to take a family photo shot with the Moon.
I'm an olive oil freak, and this shop fills the bill quite nicely! I picked up the Picual oil. Apparantly, this olive will have an extremely limited pressing this season. Get it while you can!
A terrific store. A SC Boys dream - Moonpies, RC Cola, and Young Plantations Pecans all under one roof. Excellent ice crea, hot dogs, and gifts. Bought the kids Moonpie shirts.
Dang, Jim, tough review. I live here and got excited when I just read about the moonpie store. If it wasn't raining today, i'd be going down there to sample some delicious favorites or try one of the newbies.
You go because it's a unique store and hopefully has some unique offerings. Moonpie is awesome and I hope it makes a serious comeback.
Nice to duck into for air conditioning, but now that anyone can buy Moonpies ANYWHERE in the world, I am not sure why I want to spend a ton of money to buy them on a vacation in Charleston SC - so that then I have to ship them back home... or put them in the car for the drive back home...
And, sitting in there to eat and drink expensive food that is bad for me is not exactly a good investment of my time on vacation in Charleston...
Still, the store itself is nice... just not sure WHY I'd ever want to go again -- or why I went in the first place.
Went by there this weekend and they had just opened up. Wonderful choices of oil, vinegar and rubs for meat and fish. Great that you can taste anything, even the rubs. We bought some oil and vinegar for ourselves and also for a hostess gift. I think this store is a bonus for King St.
