If you are looking for a typical low country breakfast when you are in Charleston, you need to swing by Charleston's Cafe. Order the shrimp and grits - some of the best in town. Plus, the other breakfast items are also so worth it! Not low on calories, but worth the splurge!

Everything was amazing. I visited this cafe with my husband and we cant be more pleased. We ordered a Salted Caramel Mocha Latte, Pumpking pancakes and Salmon and Crab Griddle Cakes, and OMG, were they good. The service was great and even though we went in rush hour (Sunday at 1100) we got a table right away, catered by our... More

Recommended by our hotel, we gave this place a visit for breakfast and were delighted. Outstanding French toast, and lots of other great goodies. Service was great as well, and we left very full and very satisfied!

I love this place! Where the locals eat - great food, great service - sometimes a wait but it's worth it. The menu is perfect - something for everyone - gotta try the oatmeal they make - I tried to duplicate it but no luck!!

My six girlfriends and I tried everything from the shrimp and grits to the fried sweet rolls to th pumpkin pancakes, the sweet potato rolls, the eggs Benedict and honestly everything was absolutely delicious. Better to call for reservations as people are outside waiting for their time for a table...but they know it is so worth it.

Nice place for breakfast, great menu items and wonderful wait staff. We went there with a party of 6 and we were seated promptly. I suggest on the weekends to go before 9:30 am as the place get's pretty busy. While your waiting I did notice they have outside complimentary coffee and ice water. I had the traditional eggs benedict... More

I get excited about a good breakfast. And good breakfasts aren't that hard to find. A great breakfast, however, isn't that easy. A memorable breakfast is an even more elusive thing and when found, is something to be coveted and revered. I found that memorable breakfast at Charleston's Cafe. Wow. First of all, the service was spectacular and attentive with... More

Charleston's Cafe is one of the best places in Mt Pleasant for breakfast or lunch. Have been there several times and it is always good. I had the Eggs Benedict with crab meat/shrimp/sausage. It was fantastic. The pancakes are home made and excellent with local pecans and strawberries. Just a great old school cafe with fabulous food and friendly service.... More
