It seems to be a trendy place for the younger crowd. That was the feeling we got as our waitress ignored our many attempts to get her attention. She told two handicapped people, that she would not serve us coffee. We had to maneuver through cramped tables to the back of the restaurant to a self-serve coffee stand. I burned... More

Another one of my favorite places I now miss when I used to work in West Columbia. One of the best places to get a smoked salmon and bagel in the Midlands, plus for lunch great homemade soup and great sandwiches. I love the atmosphere inside. If you go at lunch, expect to wait for a table. Parking is also... More

Whether you go for brunch, lunch or dinner, you will leave very satisfied with the great drinks, food and service. Nice outdoor patio for enjoying the beautiful spring weather too. Love all the healthy options they offer!

We were visiting my daughter and family in SC for Easter. Km kept on saying we had to go to Café Strudel for the hangover hash browns before our long journey home to NJ. She was right! The hash browns and fresh bagels were awesome. We all enjoyed our breakfasts. The service was fast and with a smile. I really... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant while in the area to pick up a car being repaired at a local shop. We enjoy trying local restaurants that are not chain restaurants We were not disappointed! Place has a bohemian feel to it, as it was very crowded that day at lunch time. All different age groups present. We ordered... More

One of our favorite breakfast locations in the area and the best part is we can avoid having to drive into Columbia. I always order the Classic 2 egg breakfast with bacon and a side of hash browns,its huge and filling and with a drink will only set you back $10. The dessert cooler is always full of delicious looking... More
