“Great Soups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Five Loaves Cafe has two locations in the Charleston area: one near the College of Charleston and the other in the northern suburb of Mount Pleasant.

They feature a selection of home made soups daily. Try the sampler which gives a small cup of three different soups. The regular cups are generous and the bowls are a meal in themselves!

The servings are very generous allowing most diners to take home a second serving for the next day. The restaurant is very popular, and it does not take reservations...so arrive early!

“Hard to find, worth the search”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We chose 5 Loaves after looking at the online menu and seeing the TA rating. It is located in the corner of a strip shopping center with a tree growing in front of the sign, so if we hadn't had GPS I really don't think we would have been able to find it. It is a very small restaurant, but the food was very good and reasonably priced. Where else can you get beef medallions for $16? Our group of 4 had beef medallions, blue crab pasta, shrimp with gnocchi, and spaghetti with meatballs and all were well prepared. Cheesecakes must be a specialty for dessert, because there were 4 kinds being offered the night we were there. We chose the Charleston cheesecake, a caramel cheesecake, and we didn't leave a crumb behind. We were very glad we chose to visit 5 Loaves, and we'll go back when we visit the area again.

“Delicious food and warm atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We sought this place out based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. The ingredients were fresh and well prepared. I guess if I had to complain I would say the pork loin was a little overcooked.

“Great food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Went in on a busy night so we had to wait less than ten minutes for a table which was nice. Offered many specials for the day and the menu had many gluten free options. Atmosphere was cozy and comfortable, out door seating was available. Food took a reasonable time to get to the table. Everything was great with the food. While we understand that we picked a busy night to come in, the service could have been a little better. We felt passed around by the servers because we did not have one consistent server through the meal. However, everyone was extremely nice. Overall we enjoyed our experience and will be back.
