Re: “Milkshakes bring everybody to the yard

How much marijuana must one smoke to make a fruity pebbles or twinkie milkshake seem delicious?

And a deli.

Re: “Milkshakes bring everybody to the yard

There is always a trend in Charleston where the same type of something opens (in this case burger joints)and they make a go at it and within a year or two of struggling they close, leaving vacant buildings once again...We need dining options that have substance. Some great breakfast spots are what we need currently...

To 11dogboy11, you are right! Dana (chef,owner,operator) noticed the exact same thing and we are changing it immediately. Thanks for the imput.

Re: “Hubee D's plays with puddin'

We got our dessert and I thought the proportion of fried batter in relation to the other components was too much. My daughter loved it though...

Re: “Pastries come to those who wait at Macaroon Boutique

Discovered this place on my last visit to Charleston...LOVED IT! The service was outstanding (don't know where these other unkind posters are coming from). They were gracious, kind, and happy to serve. And whatever you do, DON'T MISS THE RASPBERRY MACAROON! You'll love it. Will definitely put this place on my "to do" list every time I return to Charleston.

Re: “Pastries come to those who wait at Macaroon Boutique

The baked goods are amazing but they are not personable which is expected in our culture. Maybe they could stay in the back baking and hire the locals to serve the customers. We might let them stay.

Re: “3.14 Pies fills its crusts with organic, local, seasonal ingredients

To Jschumacker:

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Good, bad, ugly. However, making broad statements about something isn't very helpful. What could use improvement, friend?

Re: “3.14 Pies fills its crusts with organic, local, seasonal ingredients

I have not historically been a pie person but a few months ago I attended a pie tasting at a friend's house where 3.14 showcased some of their tasty pies. I was HOOKED. Just prior to the July 4th holiday weekend, I saw a FB update about ordering for the 4th and decided I needed to get on that train. I ordered THREE and thank goodness because my in-laws came in town for a surprise visit... Needless to say, the pies were devoured before the weekend ended, and I got major brownie points from the in laws for being "so prepared" and "thoughtful" with desserts (thanks for making me look good!). Where pie consumption is concerned, there is nothing worse (to me) than eating something that just tastes "manufactured" and stuffed with ingredients that you are not sure you want to know about. 3.14 pies exude Charleston flavor and you get the sensation you were sitting in the kitchen while Lindsay and Brett baked their magic.

I can't say enough about the goodness of these pies!

"Mouse." Rats. Corrected. Gracias.

Re: “3.14 Pies fills its crusts with organic, local, seasonal ingredients

I usually try to go for everything local, but unfortunately, I've had 3.14 pies at Cafe Medley and at Caviar and Bananas and it has been very disappointing.
There's plenty of room for improvement but in the mean time skip the pie

Pie. It's what's for dinner. My dinner.

3.14 pies sell themselves. You don't need my opinion (though it's a favoring one) about the pies. I work for one of the retail stores. I see a customer looking puzzled as to what to order. Taking this opportunity of indecisiveness, I put my two cents in, "Get the pie!" Sold. Another satisfied customer. I don't have to describe the pie - they just see it and know I'm right.

PS. Get the creme anglaise on the side (for the blackberry cabernet) and dip your bites... more creme-i-ness in each bite :)

You had me at "pie" and lost me at "mouse."

Re: “3.14 Pies fills its crusts with organic, local, seasonal ingredients

I'm not a dessert person (give me another filet instead please), but these two have definitely converted me into a "pie appreciator." My favorite so far is the Salted Rim Lime Margarita - followed by the Blackberry Cabernet (and it's not just because there's quality alcohol in both of them I swear..)
I've heard so many people comment on how fantastic the pies taste so I know that this company has found a place in an already culinary enriched city! I wish them the best of luck as they are two wonderful people as well!!

Re: “3.14 Pies fills its crusts with organic, local, seasonal ingredients

Anyone who hasn't tried this company's pies because they're "cake people" and "don't generally like pies," you must! I was converted after trying some of their Blackberry Cabernet Pie at Caviar & Bananas. This enticed me to try a different pie (the Margarita) at Triangle Char & Bar after I was pleasantly surprised they sold their pies. 2 for 2! Can't wait to try some more.

Re: “Pastries come to those who wait at Macaroon Boutique

Both of the owners been incredibly friendly and gracious every time I've stopped in. And, of course, the pastries are superb!

Re: “Pastries come to those who wait at Macaroon Boutique

The fargarence is wonderful the... however Macroon Boutique is THE WORST thing to have EVER come to Charleston!!!! The owners are the rudest, most insulting store owners every to open a business. They need to be reminded that this is Charleston, not France. Go home!!!!
