Don't dare go to any chains. Go here for good coffee and breakfast. Cookies looked good too! Neat place with outdoor seating.

I cannot even remember how we discovered Kudu, but I am so glad we did! We went for breakfast today before heading to the Saturday market at Marion Square, which was super convenient as Kudu is pretty much across the street from the square. We took our pooch with us, so we had to sit on the patio, but the... More

Knowledgeable and friendly staff prefaces this comfortable, yet professional space. Fresh baked goods from myriad sweet and savory croissants and paninis, are easily paired with a respectable, but not overwhelming selection of craft beer, wine, and coffee. The coffee is fresh and the beer taps clean. However, my compatriots was of the opinion that the latte she ordered was a... More

Enjoyed sitting outside, enjoying an iced coffee and a massive chocolate croissant after a day of shopping on King Street. Right near Marion square. Relaxed vibe. Shady courtyard perfect for relaxing.

Found this place on a walkabout around town. Stay at the Francis Marion. Very nice staff and a great courtyard. The cask beer was soooo yummy! The beer is close to $6 a pint but a nice place to stop and chill out for a beer.

The place that saw us the most is Kudu, a nice little spot to kick back with coffee or craft beer. Being within close proximity of the College of Charleston, it's difficult to miss the students and lecturers winding up or winding down over a cup of the fair trade Counter Culture coffee from North Carolina. And these guys really... More

we went twice. It was on our list from the get-go. Near College of Charleston. The usual funky clientele engrossed in their iPads, Mac's, or a group of students listening to a professor pontificate on something... Coffee was very good. We went back 2 days later for craft beers. Very good but small selection. Good selection of food out of... More

I have had coffee all over the country, and I have to say that this place ranks towards the top. Their espresso is excellent. The menu is varied. And the prices are normal coffee-shop prices. But the atmosphere was incredible. We went on a perfect 75 degree day in February, and the doors were open allowing the amazing weather inside.... More
