I don't have high hopes for this cafe. They're not open because they didn't get the proper licenses but they continue to solicit donations via their newsletter and promote their Christmas party (that they can't host). It would have been nice to be notified they weren't actually open before making a several hours trip to Charleston to check them out.
I sorely miss the original flatbread, the briskit burger, eggs benedict, and meatloaf(special). The newer items on the menu are good-ish, but not to die for like those referenced.
I used to eat there a lot, but now only once in a while. AND my favorite bartender Paige hasn't been there for a while.
@Abby, this isn't a review. It's a blog post.
I truly enjoyed my meal in the Charleston, SC restaurant. Their collard greens are, without a doubt, the best I've EVER had in my life. I would go back in a heartbeat. My only suggestion is that they put cornbread on the menu!
Wish I would have been impressed, but I wasn't.
Just looked like the old Charleston Beer Works with a paint job, colored lights and overpriced drinks
Dinner was also served to Chef Dennis. In fact as you watched the episode, many of the chefs deferred to his judgment on flavor and authenticity.
What about the spacious atmosphere, food menu, attentive service, and what type of music and special events? I'd like to see better reviews than two sentences of what this venue hopes to accomplish.
Just had to add this.
OMG! 3 for $5!! What a STEAL! LOL
hollyplay, you can actually buy three biscuits for $5 at the King Street store.
So ironic that Ms.Morey's grandmother was so poor she had to make her biscuits from whatever possible, out of necessity. Now those same biscuits are being sold for $5+ EACH to Charleston's tourists.
This place is going to be filled with dudes thinking it will be filled with women.
If all are welcome, what makes it a women's bar except the color. Seems a demeaning come-on.
What!?! Just what Charleston needs a place for all them vodka drinking simple bitches to gather without all that complicated stuff like choices... This post make women look fragile and stupid.God forbid we have a brain and drink whiskey....
Google "satire", you knuckleheads.
It wasn't so much the choice of the place that I found off-putting, I can understand wanting to bring in some historical context, and I can even trust Tom C that they're going to deal with the whole issue over time. The moment that struck me negatively was when Padma referred to the location as a place where "people worked and toiled in times past" as if it was just a job that they happened to take. It felt a bit tone-deaf to the location.
Just gonna go ahead and put this out there for the next person who thinks the author of this article is serious.....
She's not. :-)
Oh pleeeeeease tell me that there will be a dress code requiring we all have our ankles and wrists covered at all times!
Thanks Michelle. I thought the same thing. Make mine a bourbon, neat.
