Don't let the busy nature of the place discourage you. Five Loaves has too good of a sandwich at too reasonable a price point to have it ruined by a bunch of tourist mouthbreathers and indecisive college kids blocking up the sidewalk and entrance. Shoo them away from the door like flies if you must, or glare at them in a threatening way. If push comes to shove, initiate a fist fight with the self-righteous guy from Maryland who doesn't understand why anyone would ever tell his busted wife to allow others to enter the restaurant. Whatever it takes to mark your territory. Or so I've heard.
Anyway, that's how good Five Loaves' sandwiches/salads/soups are. Don't take shit from non-locals and this place will be your bitch in no time.
I recommend the Pork Loin sandwich (formerly known as The Parker), the arugula salad with goat cheese/candied walnuts and the Ultimate BLT on croissant. Get everything on croissant. Can't go wrong with any of them.
Nutella, PB and Marshmallow or grilled PBJ....simply the greatest. Don't care how long it takes, I will wait for my fix. Also, I never catch attitude from anyone here.
I love Cory's Grilled Cheese! They have the best bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich in town. It's no contest.
Hidden gem of the city. Ultra cool atmosphere, excellent food, first class service and, thankfully, off the beaten path. Best appreciated at night when you approach through the gas lite courtyard, walk through the cozy kitchen, step down into the intimate bar, slip into the adjoining restaurant area or proceed up to the lounge rooms bathed in candlelight. As a Charlestonian, it's my go to place to impress friends, clients and dates. My only hope is that the locals don't find out about this place, which I might have just done with this review.....
Best biscuits and gravy I had, anything from their specials to regular menu it's always good!
Had an outstanding meal here last week. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to try new, interesting and fun food. The service was great and all in all one of the highlights of our trip! Can't wait to come back and try the new dishes as chef mentioned they change weekly.
tasty, light fare with lots of veggies, nice decor, good service, reasonable prices, easy seating, no tourists.
Wonderful hospitality, fabulous ingredients, exceeds expectations!
Completely original cafe tucked in a garden near Shem Creek. It's mellow vibe makes it okay to kick back and relax as long as you want with friends, family, wine, and their delicious home made foods. Soups, salads, and panninis and daily specials.
Great light fare. Fabulous wines . Friendly folks that hold many fundraisers for those
In the community .
Recently ate at Eclectic Chef... WOW! All I can say is WOW! What a wonderful sandwich. I ordered a sandwich and salad combo - nothing like any combo I've ever eaten. So much food for the money. Everyone was so friendly.. Great food and Awesome service! How can you not go back?
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.
This is my favorite Summerville restaurant. I have never had anything bad there. The customer service is great as well. Great soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts.
Cade Style was awesome! Blues, jazz, Motown, our feet were tappin' to the music while we joined in singing to old familiar songs. Great performance.
We love it, great food and good prices for lunch. To many places now are overcharging for lunch but I can get a bag of chips and a sandwich for 8 or so dollars. I can get it delivered too!
Love it!!! When it comes to fast food...your options are usually pretty limited to low-quality/low-grade food. Persimmon is not only fast, but has an incredible array of options that are healthy and fresh. The soup happy hour is a great deal too on the way home from work.
My favorite burger place in town! Go for the "Spicy Southerner" YUM
Great food, great service and huge portions!
From all standpoints: excellent!
Downtown cafe last Wed: great, fresh food for good value ie ultimate BLT, light potato cakes over spinach; soups are awesome....a varied menu; half/full portions available; dedicated wait staff, cool interior and location.
Really, a joy to discover! Order enough to take some home...
