A cozy little place with great food. Went for restaurant week and really enjoyed it. Appetizers were great. Entrees were excellent. I had the beef bourguignon and it was excellent. It came very hot and stayed hot and delicious. Others had the shrimp over angel hair pasta and the other menus entrees and they all enjoyed them. Took a look... More

This was a great place for brunch, very cozy and comfortable with a French cafe vibe. The food was simple and good. This cafe would be best for small groups.

This is a relatively small and quiet neighborhood restaurant and bar. For those of us who treasure good acoustics and good food, it's heaven. I live in Charleston, and I often recommend this place. Go there; it's great.

Just out for a walk with my wife and dropped in because it looked so cute. We split a smoked trout plate--it was superb. Hit the spot. The decor and atmosphere was sophisticated yet inviting and casual. Will happily return.

Great Atmosphere and good food and service!! We were celebrating a sibling reunion and felt safe without the accompany of a man, since our brother had a medical emergency and couldn't join us in Charleston at the last minute!

My boyfriend and I have been frequenting this location for almost 5 years now. It has always been a great spot for an after dinner dessert and coffee, after work drink, or a light bite to eat. Recently they have added a Chef who is preparing amazing brunch dishes and dinner. We tried the eggs benedict and a traditional breakfast... More

Went to Charleston last week and stayed right downtown. It's a great city and we found lots of great restaurants! This was one of our favorites, we wanted a brunch one day and they had their inviting doors open on Bay Street. We walked in, sat right down and were given 2 menus. One was for lunch and the other...

We only stopped after lunch for drinks but wished we would have been there for lunch. The menu looked very good. They also do an afternoon tea which looked like fun but this would be something you would need to plan in advance. The bartender was very pleasant and friendly. It was obviously a favorite of business people in the... More
