Excellent choice.

Wonderful fine in Charleston. Casual and comfortable, affordable and unpretentious, with a great menu. All of our party of 10 enjoyed our meals. We will return.

Met here with another family the night before heading out on a cruise. Nice choice of beverages, I had a mimosa flight that was a good celebration choice. The food choices were pretty diverse. I ended up getting a variety of soups and a half sandwich. Kids had no trouble finding something to suit them as well. Service was nice,... More

Second visit to five Loafs and will return. I had the chicken Marsala, daughter had the chicken parmigiana, wife had pumpkin sees encrusted salmon. Everything is so fresh. Place is very clean, quite, and dimly lit. Love this place.

Lots of choices and friendly service were found. I had chicken salad BLT which was great. My daughter had trio of soups and a salad. We ended with a huge and dark delicious brownie. Looking forward to eating there again on my next visit.

We had an egg plant appetizer and a salmon entree we shared! They both were absolutely delicious! The salmon was cooked perfect! The bread they give you was very good as well! Good attentive staff.

We were just looking for reasonably priced food near our hotel but this was quite lovely! The restaurant has a very nice athmosphere with many young people and the food was really good. I can especially recommend the mussels, yum! Would return anytime!

Great stop for soup and a sandwich. The food is consistently good with some inventive sandwiches. Dinners are good as well but we tend to stick with lunch at 5 loaves. Would recommend for a quick casual lunch with friends or family.

Five Loaves really is a favorite place to go to for a special lunch with my daughter who lives in Charleston. I appreciate that they "buy local" whenever possible and everything I've had certainly reflects that kind of freshness. The eggplant fritter salad with white balsamic is my favorite. Everyone in our party of four enjoyed what they got a... More

Came a bit before 11am - seated quickly and every bite from every plate was eaten with enthusiasm. You know, when you take that first bite and realize you're in for a treat? That's Five Loaves. From a ham/Brie spinach wrap with green tomato jam to eggs Benedict ala Charleston (crab cakes instead of Canadian bacon) to shrimp n grits,... More
