YuM! Best bakery and coffee shop in Charleston, sooo good.
My husband and I had food from here twice for takeout and once to dine in (in the span of about 2 weeks). We've tried a variety of the items on the menu, and everything has been terriffic. The service was more than fine the time we ate there. I highly recommend the Pad Thai and the Laos Egg Noodle Soup with Braised Pork. You can't beat the food for the price! It's one of our new favorites.
Great food for a great price.
I love Macintosh for Sunday brunch and for dinner. I am always pleasantly surprised with my dishes and great service.
I hear what others are saying about it being loud and dim. I haven't had a problem reading the menu, and enjoy the active atmosphere. Romantic its not, so if that is what you are looking for, I'd try some where else. But if you are looking for an energetic scene and some seriously good food, this is a great choice.
Tilefish - YUM!
Mexican restaurants come in a variety of styles and flavors and this is a much needed addition to the Charleston food scene. This is Baja Mexican style which I have spent a fair amount of time sampling in the San Diego and Baja Peninsula of Mexico. Charleston finally has a fish taco done right with stand out guacamole and filling salads as well as lots of other options as well. I have not tried everything yet but what i have had is really very good and value priced. Great place to bring kids and did I mention that the beer selection is solid as well. This is the type of place my family and I will eat at often. Please open one in MT P area.
Damn tasty food. Try Bon Banh Mi only if you want some food that excites your taste buds. Every sandwich and taco is packed with tantalizing flavor. Service is quick for takeout, and they do deliver downtown. Parking sucks on Spring street.
Hey Adam83 - Sorry to prove you wrong, Mr Conspiracy Theorist: I am in no way affiliated with Sweet Ce-Ce's and I have posted other reviews. Good job with your fact checking. Why don't you spend your time going through the Warren Commission Report with a fine toothed comb while you're at it. Really, that's fine, don't go to Sweet Ce-Ce's - they'll be more for the rest of us!
I really wish I lived closer to Castaway's because it is such a chill, spacious bar for happy hour or to grab a bite. They have the usual pub fare but fancy it up with pasta dishes and a pork chop entree. I always make sure to go once a month on the Tuesday when they have a stand up comedy night. I'm usually not a big fan of stand up, especially when I'm not familiar with the comedians because I hate when I have to force myself to awkwardly laugh, but I've been three times and they've never disappointed! It doesn't hurt that they have super cheap beer and a $2 vodka special. I'd highly recommend!!
Simply the best frozen yogurt in Charleston!
So glad we have Sweet CeCe's in the Holy City.
At Sweet CeCe's on South Market right now watching the Super Bowl on their big TV, using their free WiFi on my computer, and eating a huge cup of Charleston Chocolate flavor frozen yogurt with brownie and cheesecake bites. Can't get too much better than this. Aren't too many frozen yogurt places like this!
Kind of hard not to write a good review on this place. It's WAY over the top! Just amazing, and glad Charleston has Sweet CeCe's. Quality, quality, quality - and, the prices are good. They also have specials too which make it even cheeper. I work about 1 block away and go several times a week its so good. I really try to get either their vegan flavor or gluten free, and I try (not always) to put on a delicious healthy topping - they told me there are almost 50 of them. sometimes (fridays) i cheat! Anyway, highly recommend Sweet CeCe's in the Market. You can't be disappointed.
My wife and I just read the other reviews, and we agree. There are a lot frozen yogurt and ice cream places in Charleston now, so we imagine there is more competition. Not really sure there is any competition for Sweet CeCe's. Can't add much to this review; but, just try it. You will see - its very different, and you do get a lot for your money which is important to my wife and me. We like it.
So glad to see it listed in City Paper! It's kind of new in Charleston, and my family and I love it. We go all the time to Sweet CeCe's, and have never been disappointed. Great flavors, amazing atmosphere, and its just a fun place to be. It's next to Bubba Gumps sort of. The Charleston flavors are great by the way - French Quarter Praline is totally addictive.
Out of the ballpark! Sweet CeCe's is nothing like the other frozen yogurt places we've been to in Charleston. It's fro-yo on steroids! Staff was well trained, the place was spotless, the selection was huge, and the flavors were unbelievable. It tasted like rich ice cream; but, they said it was gluten free, and non-fat. We're definitely going back - loved it!!! VERY CHARLESTON!
My new favorite, recently discovered, take out spot! I order out and get the basil rolls, green papaya salad, and chicken curry - all are great! They have a nice dining room and one day I'll make plans to dine in.
It would appear all of these reviews were written awhile ago right within the first few months of opening. I have to say Hom is now my favorite burger place in town. Not only that, it is now rocking the best brunch in Charleston. The burgers may seem smaller than average but they are packed with great ingredients that are rich in flavor and super filling. For those who shy away from beef, they offer a whole range of veggie options and an skewer of mini chicken sammies. They have the best shoestring fries and their smoked onion remoulade is orgasmic.
Their brunch includes burger benedicts and duck hash but by far the best dish is their Fried Chicken BLT. Served on Texas toast with fried chicken thigh, its the most delicious chicken sandwich in town.
My favorite burger place in town! Go for the "Spicy Southerner" YUM
I have celiac disease and I still eat here occasionally. That should tell you something.
Let me start by saying I am rather disgusted by the fact that someone has enough hatred for EVO to "dislike" any positive review or comment on here. Really? What did this restaurant do to you? I won't let that affect my review of what I consider the best pizza in Charleston.
Why is this the best pizza in Charleston? Why does my opinion count? Actually, pizza taste is more subjective than any other food out there. It seems that some people think the best pizza comes from NY. Other people only like the thick Chicago style deep dish pies. I can appreciate all styles of pizza, and I used to make them as a part time job as a teenager. However, my true pizza purist side really appeared while living in Italy for 3 months (and during multiple return trips). While I lived in a little suburb of Torino called Venaria Realle, I learned that most popular pizza in Italy was Pizza Napoletana, which originated from Naples. This style had thin crust with light toppings, and was cooked in a wood fired oven. The wood fire always added a wonderful touch of smoke to the crust, while providing a high heat level to crisp things up. When you ordered a Pizza Margherita, you would get an 8" pie with a light covering of sauce, frest cut tomatoes, house made mozzarella cheese (I preferred to opt for Mozzarella di Buffalo), and just the lightest touch of seasoning from a couple basil leaves. This was pizza perfection to me. I tried this pizza from many places during my stays, and it was always delicious.
Now that I live in Charleston, I often miss this Napoletano pizza experience. Then, I discovered EVO. Extra Virgin Oven (EVO) takes pride in producing the most accurate representation of true Italian pizza you will find in this part of the country. They offer the same fresh ingredients and even feature a true wood fired pizza oven. The crust is always cooked to a perfect crisp level, and they even seem to have the dough chemistry worked out to match EU. To add some American spice to the traditional dish, they offer something called a Pork Trifecta. Sweet Jeebus, the Trifecta is delicious. I am still an American, and I love bacon. The PT gives you the bacon fix you needed, along with some house made sausage and pepperoni. I think the combination of tradition with an American pork lover's wet dream make this the best pie in CHS.
Aside from the orgasmic talk about the pizza, EVO also delivers on beer selection and service. I have never had an issue with the waitresses, as they are quick to take orders and deliver food. The craft beer selection had slacked off for a while, but seems back to normal. I also have enjoyed the breads I have tried from their bakery.
While there may be many NY pizza purists on Citypaper, if you love fresh ingredients, you really need to try EVO for yourself. I don't expect it to be #1 on everyone's list, but I would hope the flavor might convince you that these guys know what they are doing. All this pizza talk is making me hungry! Cheers!
Wow, wow, wow! I was initially intimidated by the set up of the Grocery's menu, but a friend had been raving about it, so we broke down and went for restaurant week. So glad we did! After reviewing the menu options, we opted to order off the regular menu. The clam appetizer with merguez sausage is an excellent combination of flavors. The bacon wrapped duck breast combined two of my favorite things flawlessly, without seeming fatty. My only complaint is that there wasn't more butternut squash! For dessert, the Banana Pudding Parfait was a perfectly elevated rendition of a southern classic. The Churros, which the server mentioned was the signature dessert, were awesome, and big enough to share. Not only was the food outstanding, but the service was impeccable. We will definitely be back!
