Easy to find near Hwy 17 in Mt Pleasant. Extensive breakfast menu with traditional and nontraditional fare. Unusual rendition of Croque Madame. A modest breakfast for two was $30+. Average food and preparation.

We came here on a busy Sunday afternoon and there were many people waiting outside. We had a party of six, so we did a call ahead and only waited for a table about 10 minutes. Once we were seated and had beverages, we put in our orders and the food seemed to take forever to come out. Luckily, the... More

While visiting our son in Mt. Pleasant this summer we ate breakfast several times at the Charleston's Cafe. It is a favorite of locals and serves some very interesting creations for breakfast. You can get standard breakfast items also and they also have scones, fresh fruit, yogurt parfaits, and homemade muffins. At with most Charleston eateries, portions are plentiful.

While in town by myself at breakfast I decided to try this cafe based on all of the positive reviews. I have never written a bad review but decided to post after my experience. I ordered the corned beef hash and eggs. Unfortunately I cannot find anything positive to say about the meal. The hash was dry. The biscuit was... More

Spouse and I discovered this delightful little bistro when searching for a breakfast place before doing the Fort Sumter cruise. Our server didn't seem particularly happy, maybe he was having one of those days. The food was wonderful and the prices were reasonable. We'll be back when visiting Charleston in the future.

YELP drove us crazy trying to make it be on Johnnie Dodds Blvd. NOT SO!!! It is in Anna Knapp Plaza OFF of Johnnie Dodds at the intersection with Anna Knapp Blvd. It is within 100 yards of that intersection. We went to try the shrimp & grits which had sort of a tomato bisque sauce.

Not a ton of options if you want to stay East if the bridge a have a bor breakfast. My daughter had a beautiful waffle. Pretty good prices, especially compared to the Courtyards by Marriott cafe. Definitely a good choice.

My wife and I found this cafe online and wanted to keep to our tradition of always eating at local places while on vacation. The reviews all showed to be good. Our experience however was not. The staff was not very friendly at all. Unfortunately my wife does have a dairy allergy, which we know is tough with southern food,... More

Came here after I found it on TripAdvisor before our journey to charleston. Our hotel charged 15.95 for breakfast buffet. My husband and I are picky eaters so that was not an option. Very happy we decided to go! Sunday AM was a good time bc of all the church goers. Had the flavored latte of the week - amazing!!... More
