Great little bistro for breakfast or lunch. Food is wonderful! Couples or small groups seating is limited.

You wouldn't think that a place in a strip mall on four corners of a highway would be anything but a breakfast/lunch "joint". Well, we were visiting Charleston and visited the Charleston Tea Plantation down the road from the Bistro. Looking for lunch, we tried several places (one closed, one just a market), and then spotted this place. Wow!! What... More

Amazing breakfast & super friendly staff. My husband and I are part time residents here and this is our first stop the morning after we arrive. I always get the Jessica Ann omelette (basil, tomato, feta, purple onion) and my husband alternates between a breakfast burrito and a couple other items. I believe the bread is homemade...everything is always so... More

Its hard to bring myself to write this, as you always hope places don't get too "discovered" because its pretty damn perfect for what it is. After driving past many times - it's a tin shed next to a tax office, a chiropractor, on a crossroads for goodness sake - we tried the Bistro for breakfast and were immediately in... More

We were told by a local to make sure to give this a shot. My wife and I tried each of the specials and the kids had biscuits and gravy. The food was fresh and very tasty, the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We will definitely go back!

The Bistro as our daughter calls it.... is our favorite place to eat on the island. Their food is excellent quality at a good price. I love that its still a locals spot. A nice break break from Kiawah area in the summer months. Although we now find our self eating here most of the time. BBQ sandwich is a... More

I have driven by this place hundreds of times but never gave it a try - my mistake. My wife and a friend of hers went there for breakfast and my wife raved about it so we visited the next day. Its very small and stays packed but once you try their breakfast its obvious why the place stays busy;... More

Have been here many times. When I want a great place to have a nice leisurely weekend breakfast this is my go-to spot. Food is always good and the place has a warm, casual feel. Also has lunch items, which family members have had and liked, but I am a big fan of breakfast food.

Great place for Breakfast or Lunch. It is hidden away but worth the effort to find it. Eclectic menu and helpful service. Can't wait to go back!

Stumbled onto this place when searching for a quick breakfast. I had the tomato melt, which was on a bagel that was a bit under cooked, cheddar, tomato and scallion cream cheese . My husband had an egg sandwich which enjoyed but also thought the bagel was a little too doughy.
