I chanced upon this cafe in Charleston on the morning of July 4th, when many other restaurants were closed. I'll admit the location was a little off-putting initially, as the cafe occupies an area within a laundromat, which was a first for me! My husband I I walked in and spoke to the owner, who was just opening for the day. We were looking for breakfast, which they don't officially serve. However, the owner graciously offered to make us a panini breakfast sandwich of ham and gruyere, which we gratefully accepted. The sandwich was yummy - had a nice hint of maple, was perfectly grilled, and the ham and cheese were of great quality. I also ordered a rosemary iced tea with agave. When I mentioned the tea was a little too sweet for me, he quickly made a new one using less agave. While this cafe has a limited menu due to it's location, the quality of what they do serve is excellent and the service is absolutely wonderful. You can also add "I had a meal at a cafe in a laundromat" to your list of firsts.
