We ate a late lunch here after arriving in Charleston. Not the most prime location, but an okay walk from the visitor's center parking area. The sandwiches are huge! We had the chicken salad and turkey and split so that each of us could try both

This restaurant is located in a strip mall off of highway 17 in Mount Pleasant. Well worth trying to find because the food is excellent. It is usually filled with locals so during lunch you may have to wait for a table. (And it's well worth the wait!) They serve soup and sandwiches which are usually made of unique combinations...

This little restaurant is tucked at the corner of Cannon & Coming Sts. It is a little hard to spot. Parking is a premium as it is anywhere in Charleston but they do have a small lot directly across the street. The food is very reasonably priced (between $11 & $17 for entrees). The have pasta with homemade fettucini, pork,... More

Despite having the address and knowing we were nearby, we drove right by without seeing this little charmer on the corner. Chosen based on TripAdvisor reviews, we were quite pleased with the Five Loaves. Group of 9 for lunch... 3 collegiates, 2 middle schoolers, 4 adults. Everybody found something on the menu that they liked or loved. We were just... More

Five loaves brings the above elements together in nice proportions. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The cuisine takes the expected values and elements of Charleston fare and kicks it up a notch. You'll find the expected seafood and chop offerings but with sides and approaches that will surprise. There is more than a nod to vegetarian offerings. Great beer... More

A very nice spot for sandwiches and soups for lunch. Small space. Didi not look at the dinner menu. A little off the beaten path, but not too far away. Friendly service. Deserts looked very good as well.

Fresh fare, creative menu and attentive service. It was exactly what we were looking for on a hot Charleston afternoon. Our meals were absolutely delicious.

Outstanding lunch spot--well deserved high ratings. Many daily specials of soups, salads and sandwiches. Many are offered in half portions--my daughter and I both had half sandwiches and small salads. Staff was excellent. Small off-street parking convenient but filled up fast.

We ordered two appetizers - the goat cheese gnocchi and the Greek quesadilla. Both were excellent! My meal (butternut squash ravioli) was good but not great. Quaint little restaurant with many interesting options. Very vegetarian friendly!

They had a good variety of beers, most of them good. The good was excellent as was the wait staff. I would recommend it to anyone. Parking is on the street.
