Really huge fatty breakfast. The food was not bad, just not great. They are more concern with quantity than quality. For these prices I expected more.

There were so many delicious things on the menu, it was hard to decide. I had the Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits & was thoroughly satisfied. Come early! This place was packed by 10am.

When we were in Mt. Pleasant for a summer wedding, we woke up Sunday morning hungry for a good breakfast before our drive home. After search TA and finding Charleston's Cafe, we decided to give it a try. Reluctant of finding a long wait time, we went anyway. We got lucky and only waited 10 minutes since we were a... More

Breakfast here is such a treat. So many different options. They have the most creative breakfasts that I haven't given there lunches a chance. The place is comfortable but not overly done up. The Amber by the way starts with a Crab cake, topped with an egg and hollandaise and sprinkled with sausage and shrimp. It's awesome. My wife changes... More

We visited this little cafe twice on our 4 day mini vacation to the Charleston area. Simply the best breakfast with fresh local food. The Chef's Special was a grit cake with blackened shrimp, poached eggs, andouille sausage gravy, asiago cheese, and green onions and it was incredibly amazing! Crawfish seafood omelet with goat cheese was incredibly good. Caper Island... More

Went for breakfast and had the chefs' special (a stack of 2 eggs, crab cake, andouille sausage gravy, grits, cheese and with blackened shrimp - are you kidding? Fantastic), and banana pecan pancakes with caramel sauce. Coffee tasted fresh ground, flavorful. The menu has something for everyone with some creative selections. Very friendly staff. Nice artwork around the restaurant. Get... More
