We met a friend at Five Loaves for lunch during our long weekend in Charleston. The menu was full of things that sounded so good. The Arugula Salad was delicious. I also had a sampler of 3 soups and the only complaint was that it was so hard to choose 3 from those that were offered. They all sounded really... More

So glad we discovered this place on TripAdvisor! Fun and funky and the food is incredible. Service attentive and portions very generous. Now a must stop every time we visit Charleston. And the one in Mt Pleasant is great, too!

This gem on Cannon St beats the hordes that patrol King these days. The food is all good....soups, salads, brunch items. It was worthy of a return visit the next day.

Visited with my family (3 Celiac). Great variety and food. HUGE portions. Food is tasty, family like dining in the moderate price and style range. It's not Michelin star, but a really solid product. Was amazed by the prices; extremely reasonable. Amongst the 5 of us we sample a pretty solid cross section of the menu ranging from the gnocchi... More

This is a fabulous little cafe nestled in downtown Charleston! I loved the healthy options!! I don't drink coffee, so I went for the chia tea latte with almond milk. Perfect place to grab breakfast or brunch!

I am vegetarian and if possible only eat organic. The five loaves cafe has all I desire. Many vegetarian choices made with locally grown produce. It tastes wonderful, is presented beautiful and you sit in a very homely feeling restaurant and are waited by friendly staff. For the meat eaters you will find antibiotic free meat choices like everything in... More

But very worthwhile. Had lunch here and my wife and I each went with a half sandwich. A good choice as the sandwiches were huge - the half sandwich was as big as most "normal" whole sandwiches. Also had the peach gazpacho, chips and two excellent beers. Service was friendly and very helpful with the menu. A really nice find... More
