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 is vital to the Charleston/King St. shopping experience, as it is one of a handful of businesses preventing the district from turning into an outdoor mall.
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.
I disagree with the above review. 52.5 is a great, funky, local place to poke around in and see what you can come up with. i have found some great obscure records in the 25cents bin and some fun nostalgic bday presents for friends. Its not a place to find everything that you are looking for, but something you never thought to find.
SUCKY LITTLE OVERPRICED PLACE NEVER HAVE ANYTHING I EVER WENT THERE FOR I AM SURPRISED IT IS STILL THERE.
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...
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.
Fantastic moonpie ice cream. Brings back great memories of my Dad's store. Great place to shop for stocking stuffers. Very friendly staff. Love those mini moonpies and the mint cookies are out of this world.

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!
Kisses will be shown at 6pm ~ http://ballycahillfestival.com/
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.
