Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

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...

Re: “Bluerose Café

A friend and I recently went to the Blue Rose Cafe. We were there for breakfast. The server made us feel very welcome and was attentive. The blueberry pancakes were delicious. The server informed us that the owner made all the desserts and specialty breads. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. It was a total delight and I will return for a visit. West Ashley has a true treasure.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

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 : )

Re: “Eclectic Chef

My wife came home one day telling me of this restaurant and how good it was. I couldn't wait to try it. I really enjoyed the outdoor seating and the friendly way we were greeted as we walked in the door. The owner was at the register taking orders and was very nice with a large smile on his face.

The food was okay, at best. I had a sandwich with turkey and bree cheese that was a little too much like one I've had at vickerys right down to the sweet, herbed mayo. I did like the cripsness of the granny smith apple and the fresh flavor of the bread it was on, however. My wife had the chicken salad with a really good pasta salad as the side. I had the potato salad and found the potatoes a little undercooked and way over seasoned, tasting a bit like seafood for some reason. The chicken salad and pasta salad, however, were good enough that I will come back the next time I'm in Summerville, just in hopes that the turkey sandwich was just not to my liking.

I was not overly impressed with their desserts, however, as I was told they were fresh and some of them were bought in, as was apparent by the pieces of paper between the slices.

Overall, I will come back, even if just to be greeted as warmly as we were again. Few places are like that anymore.

Re: “Bear E Patch Cafe

My dad loves this place. We come in once a month or so for him to have pancakes and me to have the corned beef hash omelet. The staff is always friendly and I love watching the cooks in the open kitchen.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

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!

Re: “Bluerose Café

Incredibly delicious food that feels like it's made from the heart. I have been numerous times for meals at all times of the day (and Sunday Brunch - AMAZING!) and the people have always been wonderfully friendly. Thank you Blue Rose Cafe for being a wonderful addition to Charleston! I will continue to recommend you to all of my friends who come to visit the city!

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

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.

Re: “Caviar & Bananas

I just have a problem paying as much for an iced tea as I do for may be good, but WAY overpriced!

Re: “Caviar & Bananas

Favorite place to run and grab lunch. My roommates and I can never agree on where to go, but there are so many options that no of us are ever disappointed at Caviar and Banana's. There are also so many services- wine tastings, sushi-making lessons, delivery, validated parking, and you can even swing by the store and they will hand your order to you while you remain in your car.

Re: “Saffron

Saffron used to be a lot better. Past times I have been it hasn't seemed very clean. The menu is okay. I just never feel like the food is that fresh. The day old bread is a nice touch but definitely tastes like old bread.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

Best crepes and Cuban sandwich in Charleston. Organic wine selection is tops as well. Highly recommended any time of day.

Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

We have been there quite a few times and the only time I ever had a bad meal was when I ordered the steak from the menu. It was grissle and not good. You learn, order a steak at a steak place. All the other times it has been great. I highly recommed it and it is a great value for the money. Gnocchis are some of the best I ever had.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

Haven't had a bad meal yet. From their fresh crepes to the stacked Cuban sandwich are all prepared to order. Great selection of beer and wine. One of my favorite places to stop and have a good meal and a good laugh.

Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

wow. i am cringing as i am writing this....see my other review on the page? I normally LOVE five loaves, everything is yummy and reasonably priced, but a I have to report a big fat BOOOOO & 2 thumbs down on your (lack of) service last night. Two if us walked in, about 7 pm on a Friday night, and yes, it was hoppin, as expected. Now, we honestly dont ever mind a wait for good food....but NOBODY EVER even acknowledged our presence!! We stood at the door, beside another group of 3 girls, for almost 10 minutes---never saw them get greeted either. So that's 5 people standing inside the door @ the Mt. P five loaves...if youve been in there, you know that 5 people standing at the door is pretty noticeable & obvious... We stood there almost 10 minutes, and nobody ever came by to say Welcome/Hi, or even something like "sorry it's crazy in here, it might be a few minutes". SUPER disappointed. Seriously, not ONE of the waitresses glanced at us, even when they came to the table right next to where we were standing, and the guy in the blue button down shirt at the bar seemed like he was so in the weeds he never even looked up anywhere in the direction of the door....
This is how you lose loyal customers!! W ended up over at Boulevard diner, where, even with 10 people waiting, we were greeted and our existence actually acknowledged. Might try 5 loaves again for lunch, but if that is how dinner service is run, i def. wont go back for dinner.....

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

Best crepes and Cuban sandwiches in the city. Home made spicy chipotle will clear your nasal passages. Cold pressed coffee is so strong I met Jim Morrison and Jimmi Hendrix on the same day. Their regular coffee could be better though. Organic wine selection is good.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

This establishment is the only one in the Holy City deserving of the name "Recovery Room." Cold pressed coffee, Kombucha, and vitamin loaded vittles are the morphine of the liver battering lifestyle of Charleston. Honest music and even more honest conversation seal the deal as the misgivings of the late hours can be redeemed in the early ones. Great lunch spot, almost makes me jealous of those in walking distance. When voting your dollars, don't mind walking an extra street over.
