Love this little coffee shop/ bakery/ gourmet grocery/ lunch spot. Cool, casual, and convenient! I ended up there several times!

“Nice hang-out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Adjacent to College of Charleston, this hipster coffee house/deli is the place to grab a coffee or quick bite to eat. It's also a great spot to people watch.

“Great sandwich choice in City Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Wow... a duck confit sandwich with fig jam for $9??? The club sandwich was really good too! Great bread, awesome ingredients. Definitely worth the bit of a wait for a hot, well-prepared sandwich.

“Really fresh gourmet salads and sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I have been here for a quick lunch on many visits to Charleston. The options in the deli case vary widely. Some are terrific, some just so-so. But you can't go wrong with the sandwiches and salads. The food isn't exotic, but there are lots of interesting ingredients, prepared well, and no more expensive than chain restaurant lunches.

“Gourmet cafe - perfect for coffee, lunch or take out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have been to Caviar and Bananas many times (my daughter went to CofC) and I have never been disappointed. It's great for coffee and a simple breakfast (baked goods, yogurt, fruit, etc.) in the morning, design your own salad at lunch and delicious prepared take-out at dinner. Everything is fresh, wonderful and well-priced given the quality of the food you get!
