I love this charming spot on E. Bay St. It has everything you need. Fruit for something healthy, 10 layered cake for something decadent and a wonderful atmosphere. Tapas and plentiful food is available. I'm giving it 5 stars in spite of the lack of smile on the staff. If they were a little bit friendlier this would be a... More

I stopped here during happy hour a few nights ago, intending to have a light supper and a glass of wine. Portions looked generous, so I opted for an appetizer of spinach dip with roasted red peppers and pita bread. It was perfect! Wonderful friendly atmosphere made me feel very welcome.

We stumbled upon this lovely french bistro and fell in love with it. During our three night stay in Charleston we dined here three times. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner tapas. A great intimate setting.

Stopped in here while walking around Charleston on Sunday morning. They have a limited menu. We had the French Toast made from croissant and the bagel with smoked salmon---both excellent. The coffee was just what we needed to recharge our batteries!

My wife and I found the East Bay a great place to relax and have a drink during our visit to Charleston this past October 2014. Maybe it was the disappointment with all the hype about the Charleston that made difference, but the East Bay was a relaxing spot. Never too crowded, good service and great drinks.

We decided to stroll down East Bay Street and stumbled upon a quaint Cafe with wonderful staff and drinks. Wish I had a East Bay Meeting area in my town as I would be a regular. Was very relaxing, had fresh baked food and Britt behind the bar was welcoming and informative. The Meeting House is reminiscent of a French... More

Great spot in charleston. Went multiple times during my stay. Delicious breakfast and coffee and just as good to stop in for dessert and a cocktail! Awesome staff and clearly a local's favorite.

We stumbled upon this quaint Cafe after a day of exploring Charleston. The staff was very friendly and we felt free to stay as long as we liked. We each got a coffee drink and they were delicious. This experience leads to the desire to go back and try the food, the next time I visit.

The East Bay Meeting House is located in the French Quarter. This establishment is reminiscent of a French café and offers a good but limited selection of items for breakfast, lunch, and small plates after 4:00 p.m. Fresh baked goods, espresso drinks, wine, beer, and spirits are also available. The place is very nicely appointed and the atmosphere is very... More
