I haven't been to the square onion in years - and for no particular reason other than I'm not usually nearby at lunchtime. But it was always delicious and the first summer they opened I was adicted to their Caprese Sandwiches. Heavens knows how many of them I ate in those 3 months. Anyway, with the recent weather having been hotter than the hinges on the back door of hell, I thought a cold summer sandwich would be just the thing. So, I stroll into the Square Onion with my mouth already watering. Then, I notice the daily special, and I ordered that instead. It was the most delicious heirloom tomato sandwich! There were juicy and flavorful bright yellow heirloom tomatoes layered with softened goat cheese, fresh basil, really good quality olive oil, and balsamic vineger. All of this lovliness was inside a perfect roll -- soft and chewy on the inside, crusty and lightly toasted on the outside. I had planned on eating 1/2 today and saving the other for tomorrow, yet I found myself stuffing my face until the entire sandwich was gone. I am now sitting back in my office chair, groaning, and wondering how I'm going to face a full afternoon of work. By the way, the side I chose today was edamame salad. It was solidly good, light - yet filling, and so much healthier than usual side choices that accompany sandwiches. So, 5 Stars to the Square Onion!!! I'll be back next week!!
Both Muddy Waters provide some of the best coffee and just plain good fellowship than those other places. Prices are right and the west ashley one offers great sandwiches. Visit one today!
The atmosphere is otherworldly which accentuates the therapeutic experience. I had an amazing foot bath which cleaned out many toxins in my body. I also enjoyed the "sampler" night which is more social than the private experience though it allowed me to see many other facets of what this great place will do for my body and soul.
i just stepped into seeking indigo the other day and i have been counting the moments until i can get back inside those walls. i have been looking for place just like this in the charleston area for some time now. $20 miguns! you can't get that anywhere. i immediately felt my worries lift. i spoke to very intelligent people willing and wanting to help me with any problem i have. my lower back with always be appreciative but my mind and my soul, now that it understands peace, will always seek it.
I love H&L and shop there all the time. And the variety...how much more could any one person want? That store is loaded. I walk the aisles everytime I am there. Amazing. I always go in the daylight though and do know that they are open until 8pm in the evenings. Never have seen any sign of a problem.
I hate to say it but H & L blows away Quyen for authentic Vietnamese. The pho broths are similar but when you compare the freshness and quantity of the herb condiments there is no comparison. And they are fast!
52.5 fills the gap left by all the big stores, i.e. more obscure music for true music nerds, of which I am one. It is not designed to fulfill the needs of people seeking their Top 40 fill. It is where I found Tom Waits on vinyl and a collection of Mark Ryden prints. It is where I can see cool artwork and buy used CDs and vinyl, plus the latest cool and more difficult to find indie stuff. Whenever I actually have money, that's my first stop!
One of the finest gems on upper King.
The best Cupcakes & Pies I've ever had. If you ever need a good treat for a special occasion or for no reason at all, this is the place to go. I've tried a lot of the other highly talked about places in town and so far none of them can compare. I highly recommend the chocolate bourbon pecan pie.
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.
Greatest Fashion Week hangover solution in town... we had crepes, super strong coffee, and lots of Aspirin packs... thanks to the heavens and stars for this sweet little place... and so Charleston hospitable : )
I came up with the name 'Porter, Smoked' and now I've been banished to the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands, very far from all that delicious beer. Wish I'd thought of a more creative title for such a heady brew. All they have out here is San Miguel and Red Horse. Maybe I can find some fresh tuba on Guam... I <3 Saipan! Cheers Dave & Jamie
So many great gift ideas! I got my mom a great birthday gift. Also, I brought my niece and nephew when they were in town and they loved eating hotdogs and icecream at the lunch counter. Great place for tourists to get some relief from the heat! alassor, Charleston
Thought the store was real unique. Lots of food items and toys, etc that reminded me of when I had young children. It is a dream world for a chlld with all the neat toys and candies. The food from the fountain was great, especially the ice cream.
Still freaking out from the Cold-pressed coffee rush. Fresh plate of crepe and spinach salad with homemade spicy chipotle was delicious. They could use more seating. All around great little downtown joint. Chef is kinda cute, too!
I love the Yorktown! This WWII ship was in the Battle of Midway. They have an amazing Medal of Honor Museum on board..
This place is pure delight, downtown crepe cafe with soups and hot tea at low prices. Wish the outdoor seating area was in season though.
Best crepes and Cuban sandwich in Charleston. Organic wine selection is tops as well. Highly recommended any time of day.
An excellent place to shop but I seem to have missed out on the wind tastings.
Haven't had a bad meal yet. From their fresh crepes to the stacked Cuban sandwich are all prepared to order. Great selection of beer and wine. One of my favorite places to stop and have a good meal and a good laugh.
