This place had wonderful food - I went for the eggs benedict special - avocado, tomato and bacon. Only complaint is that we had to be seated outside which was a little warm and the place is small so space is tight.

Visited this place because of the reviews on trip advisor. This cafe did not disappoint. The crab soup was hot, fresh and tasty. I also had the crab cake sandwich which was great also. This is a little cafe that is worth the trip in, I will be visiting again.

Stopped here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. What a wonderful gem located in my favorite beach spot in the world. The biscuits are the best I have ever had! Also enjoyed the blueberry walnut French toast which was a game changer! Reminder - cash only!

Went here on a recommendation from a lady downtown. Crowded, poor(read that as rude) service. Food was decent, but too long a wait and poor attitude by staff and especially the management. Too pricey as well. I hear from several locals that this place has kind of gotten the big head after some good reviews and now is a little... More

A small cafe that serves deliciousness! The tomato pie is worth the calories, go ahead it's vacation. Bring cash they don't take credit cards ( I think there's an atm out front, though.) We went in for a late lunch so it wasn't crowded. Great food, nice folks, extremely quaint; hard not to love this place!

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We were not overly enthusiastic. The blueberry walnut French toast was yummy but the eggs benedict left much to be desired. Both were served with delicious fresh fruit. Restaurant was very crowded - you get bumped a lot while eating so just be forewarned. The waitresses were friendly but not too quick... More

I hate the term "charming", but it fits. The restaurant is small, you sit close to everyone in your party and at the tables around you without being crowded. The menu is affordable and has something for everyone but our group especially liked the pancakes and Shrimp & Grits (some of the best in multiple trips to the Charleston area).... More

Stopped here for breakfast on our way out. Waited about 15 minutes. Good menu and lots of specials. Enjoyed pancakes with delish fruit and hubs had an omelet. Highly recommend breakfast here!
