Found this place by just walking. We love it so much we returned three times. Great food love the half sizes. We felt very welcomed and enjoyed every meal. We are from Boston if we lived in Charleston we would make Five Loaves Cafe are place to go at least once a week.

We had the three course meal special. All three courses were exceptional! The regular menu had good variety at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere was casual and service was great.

Ate at the Cannon Street location on 9/2/16. The menu was a refreshing surprise. The food and service was wonderful. The eggplant fritters are a must. If I could I'd give Five Loaves 10 stars!

My friend and I ate at Five Loaves on Cannon St. He had Saltimbocca and I had chicken paillard with prosciutto and.parmesan. Both were terrific! Saturday's it is half price wine bottles as well. Everything was delightful and quite reasonable. A must when you visit Charleston!
