Our favorite place for espresso martini after dinner. Lunch was delicious. Appetizers very delicious. And you have to try chocolate cake.

Visited the East Bay Meeing House on our final day in Charleston while looking for a quick and easy lunch. The place looks OK from the outside and my girlfriend had been on a previous visit and really enjoyed it. First thing that she said when we walked through the door was 'this place has changed', and it appears that... More

Awesome, awesome, awesome. We went on a late Sunday morning before the shops on King Street opened. We wanted to just sit and enjoy the morning, and it was perfect for this. We sat outside, and ordered a mimosa (wife), espresso (me) and an apple juice (daughter). We were glad they had outdoor seating, because it was classy and quiet... More

Have had breakfast, lunch, after dinner drinks and happy hour drinks at this wonderful neighborhood place. So cute and intimate inside, with great doors that open to the sidewalk. Ecclectic menu. Fabulous staff. Everyone is so friendly.

This is our favorite place to enjoy a glass of wine and some excellent food in the afternoon when taking the break from a busy day in Charleston. The staff is excellent.

Our waitress the first day was outstanding. The owner was very engaging. The food was good and the drinks were just as good. Another easy to get to location

Get there early in the morning and start the day with some people watching. The coffee is good and the food is great.

For some odd reason, we were able to drift into the cafe and get a table during the height of brunch. Very simple menu, not a bad thing, since everything was delicious. Relaxing, convenient and a good value ($18 brunch with cocktail). Perfect for a break from the action.

My friend and I stopped by for a drink after doing a lot of sightseeing. Robin, the proprietor, could not have been nicer or more welcoming. We each had one of their specialty cocktails - grapefruit vodka, st. germaine, soda, and lemon, which Robin had recommended. It was so refreshing! We also split an order of their meat tapas-nothing too... More
