We recently moved to Charleston from the Atlanta area but as visitors we had had numerous visits to Five Loaves Cafe and had always found the food to be excellent. Last night we went to the Mt. Pleasant location with our family who were visiting from San Francisco. We had raved to our family how great Five Loaves was and... More

Stopped here for lunch and found interesting lunch specials and soup, I addition to the regular menu. I chose a soup sampler to try three of the soups offered. All sounded good so how could anyone choose just one. I also had one of the featured salads which was really great. For vegans, vegetarians, and those in need of gluten... More

I really like Five Loaves because the food is fairly priced and delicious. I first went during a restaurant week and everything was great except the dessert. I've determined they don't know what cheesecake should be like. The second time I visited, I ordered off the regular menu and it was wonderful. There are a lot of vegetarian options, gluten... More

We were in town for my son's wedding and we had rented a house on Coming St. What a surprise when we discovered that FLC was walking distance from the house! We went twice for lunch and the server even recognized us. Excellent soups, salads, and sandwiches. If you are in a gluten free diet, this is the place to... More

Five Loaves never disappoints. Anytime I'm there, I always go with the Parker sandwich on a croissant. A massive slab of delicious pork loin, spinach, tomatoes, and a spicy bleu cheese sauce. SO. GOOD. The broccoli cheddar soup is so good and comforting during the colder months, and the focaccia with olive oil and balsamic is always good. This might... More

This was our first meal in Charleston - it was lunch with friends. It was casual - all of the food was fresh, flavorful and tasty. Loved the idea of being able to mix and match everything on the menu! All in all, it was a wonderful first meal in Charleston!

My husband and I regularly visit this restaurant. We always have wonderful food, wonderful service... We love trying the specials and have tried most things on the menu. However, they have recently implemented a completely new menu that we think falls short. We came in for dinner hoping to have some Five Loaves classics that never disappoint, such as the... More

We decided to try five loaves when we were in the area and couldn't decide where to go. We went to tripadvisor.com and saw the restaurant was close to where we were. The portions were great! My husband got a roast beef sandwich and I went for the portobello & goat cheese sandwich with a small spinach, mozerella and onion... More

This restaurant is a 10-minute walk from the "main action" on King St., but well worth the effort. Many previous reviews seem to have been at lunchtime, but we were there for dinner. Healthy, refreshing offerings. All 4 of us enjoyed our choices. Arriving early worked perfectly; when we left, there were a lot of people waiting.
