Tasty! Their breakfast and lunch crepes are fresh and healthy. Their ultra-strong local cold pressed coffee is addictive – perfect for a hangover. Very close to everything downtown. Highly recommend Queen Street Grocery and Crepes. Helpful wine and beer selection as well. Worth a try, on foot or via bike.
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 have found this to be a nice little gem nestled a couple of blocks from the courthouse. In addition to the wonderful crepes and salads, they also have sushi and sandwiches in the back coolers. Makes for a quick lite lunch away from the hustle and bustle.
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.
grab a coffee and pastry and hit the beach, my sunday morning thing. I wish I lived on SI so I could stop there on weekdays as well.
Love this place!! Can't get enough of the Wednesday wine tastings!!
i am now a regular customer at elysium in brickyard plantation. the staff are always welcoming and comfortable to be around, and i always know that i'm in good hands when i come to get a haircut. this is the best salon that i've run across to date, and i have short hair, so i've been around! =)
