Breakfast at Charleston's Cafe was absolutely delicious! They have a great menu, with really interesting selections. The shrimp & grit cake was delicious. The jalapeño bacon was as well. The servers were fantastic! Very friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely recommend it!!!

We make sure to come here every time we are in town. No matter what you get, you can't go wrong. I think the last time we were there I had shrimp and grits....yes for breakfast. Their coffee is phenomenal too. Everything about the place is quaint and lovely from the artwork for sale on the walls to the staff,... More

Had a great breakfast here one Saturday on our way to Charleston. It is located in a small shopping center off Johnnie Dodds Blvd. in Mount Pleasant, SC. We arrived around 9 am and were seated immediately. Upon our departure there were many people waiting for tables. So the earlier you go on a weekend the better. They have an... More

As visitors from out of town (and Internet research) for a nice breakfast establishment, we were a bit underwhelmed. The staff was wonderful but the food was par, unfortunately. I had an omelette that was dry & dull. The fruit on the plate was garnish & not edible. The French toast was undercooked. Best was the kid's meal of pancakes,... More

Although famous breakfast and brunch, we had really good salads there for lunch. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are ample. I had a salad with shrimp, bacon and avocado for about $10. My friend had a grilled salmon salad and both were delicious. I love that they serve breakfast at lunch too! One of the only places... More

Greeted and seated right away. Service was great and so was the food Very generous portions. Interesting and unique breakfast dishes at a good value.The right side of the cafe is definitely brighter and cheerier than the left side. There was only one bathroom so it was interesting when a Mom and her three kids piled in ahead of me.

We stopped for breakfast. Food was great but went a long time without seeing our waitress. Definitely ok when we don't mind waiting.

We stopped in on a Tuesday morning around nine. There was no wait to be seated. The establishment is a bit dated and in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you. The food is excellent. We had a great meal. I had the Amber's Choice-crab cake and shrimp eggs Benedict. It was the best I've ever had. My... More

The service was a little lacking or else it would have been perfect review because the food stands on its own. Very good southern menu with a flair.

This is my husband favorite place for breakfast. He comes he several times a week for the Lattes and Oatmeal! I thought I would join him this weekend. Located in a strip mall off Johnny Dodds Blvd, its not much to look at, but is known locally for great food, family friendly atmosphere and service. The with daily breakfast specials... More
