Try the Hangover Hashbrowns even if you aren't hungover...LOL. I asked to go here for Mother's day & quite a few others had the same idea. We had to wait for awhile (as any other place would have been the same) but, it was very good. Have gone back at other times & the food was just as good without... More

We ended up at Cafe Strudel when we mistakenly drove into Columbia around lunch time. We wanted something brunch like and cheap. From the area where this place is i would have never expected such a great experience. The place was packed and we waited 45 minutes, and it was worth the wait. Everyone in this place is a little...

We were there for Sunday brunch. It was very busy, with a waiting list for a table, but we opted for immediate seating at the bar. Service was great, the bartender on duty who waited on us was amazing, taking orders, mixing drinks, as well as espresso, preparing the decadent desserts for service. (Including large servings of strudel, which we'll... More

My wife and I went to Cafe Strudel for dinner after visiting Riverbanks Zoo. The seating was quick and the atmosphere delightful. Our server was new but she handled our orders and kept the drinks refilled like a pro. The food was hot and very delicious. I had the Seafood Mac and Cheese and she had Battered Cod with duck...

Great food, great service, great little location. There's just nothing to complain about here. Met there for a birthday lunch with a friend and we had a good time and a wonderful meal. I had the Low Country BLT wrap and an orange-carrot soup, both of which were great. Also a good choice a beers and other beverages. I highly... More

Had a great lunch here. Imaginative menu, great waitstaff, good coffee, and though I didn't have desserts, their pastries looked amazing. Many of their ingredients were fresh and local! (Great antique store right beside it too!)
