Stopped by for a quick breakfast. Croissants were amazing and the croissant breakfast sandwich was about as good as it gets: fresh, perfect temperature, nicely served. Coffee was good and service was delightful. We'll be back!!

We stopped here for lunch on the day we were gallery hopping. The food was a wonderful surprise! The pork tenderloin with goat cheese and capers was as good as anywhere we have eaten in France. The accompanying chutney was the best I have ever tasted. The chef is going to send me his recipe! We went back over for... More

We ate here for lunch and it was great! We each ordered a hot panini and the portions were satisfying. We also ordered the crème brûlée...it was delicious!

The decor and menu offerings immediately reminded me of the little street cafes in the center of Paris. The croissants and pastries displayed on the counter inside are irresistible and a perfect savory compliment to the best latte and cappuccino I have tasted in all my travels. All the coffee and espresso offerings are made from locally roasted organic coffee... More

The atmosphere was nice and peaceful. But the desserts were sub par. My husband and I had a scone and a Danish and they were dry and overpriced.

What a lovely place. My wife and I happened upon this cafe during an afternoon walk around Charleston. We enjoyed the quiche and salad, and latte, and the quiet surroundings and tasteful decor. Our host was friendly and unassuming. We would certainly make a return visit to the East Bay Meeting House if we are in Charleston again.

I regularly travel to Charleston, and I make a point to always come back to East Bay. From my very first visit, East Bay was a perfect blend of conversations and cocktails. Whether you want morning coffee or an evening night cap, East Bay is the place where you can have conversations and hear each other, enjoy good food, great... More

We had a great sandwich and drink here for lunch. Seems to be a family run place. Definitely recommend for lunch or a late night drink.
