Cru is a locals hangout with coffee, small meals, ice cream, sandwiches, etc. that has that real coffee house feel. A must for visitors to see how Beaufort really is. Music every Friday and Saturday night,coffee house style,no cover charge.

Coffee good, bakery items tasty. But I am reviewing our lunch here today. Miserable Italian sub. Bland, stale bread. Tasteless meats. No garnishes. Chips were OK. Just go for breakfast.

U can find great coffee, wine, oce cream, mixed drinks, or beer here. Service is excellent. One of my favorite places in Beaufort. Great ambience. Good bands are here normally Friday or Saturday. Ask for Ash.

On my July visit I had the grilled pimiento cheese sandwich and an iced mocha coffee. The sandwich was done to perfection and the iced coffee was the perfect "dessert".

We went here every day during our stay in Beaufort. Coffee is pretty good, but a little pricey. On the wine shop side they do food that you can take out - we went twice and had the pizza and chicken quesadilla both times. Pizza is decent enough, but the quesadilla was delicious! They'll also chill down a bottle of... More

Good place for coffee too. But Friday night they had free wine tastings . They certainly give a generous pour also. And have a quite a good select of wines from all over.

The coffee is delicious and one of the few places I could find nearby to get really good coffee. Loved this place, but the lady who waited on me each time was not very customer oriented-I thought the first day maybe just having a bad day, but nope-she was like that each time.

There are times when this place can be a good hangout. Generally it's just an expensive bar with a loud refrigerator running in the background. The food is basic; there is no kitchen so pizza from a small behind the bar oven, or a way overpriced plate of cheese etc. is about all you'll get. It's a bar, and expensive.... More

My husband went in for wine and a snack. When we arrived the guy at the bar said someone would be there in a few minutes to help us. The lady arrived and we ordered our wine. Later we ordered a second glass and said we wanted to order a cheese plate also. The bartender replied okay poured the wine... More

My group enjoyed an evening out with live music, drinks, and amazing pizza! Visited a second time and was equally impressed.
