We just got to Mt. Pleasant and excited to be here and visit our favorite restaurant. I ordered something new, Shrimp and grits version 2.0. Wonderful. My wife ordered an omelet with crab meat also wonderful. The waiter was personable and represented the place well. Coffee was good. Great visit.

The food is average. Be ready to pay for each item. We went there after looking at the reviews. What are some of the people drinking??? This place may have started out as great but is now overrated. God help the wait staff. Not friendly and borderline racist... Be on the look out.

Stopped at the Charleston Cafe for a quick bite to eat. Appeared to be a local favorite and offered all the basics for breakfast. Recommend for those on the go with friendly staff.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel we stayed at. The food was delicious and the wait staff were great. Had the deep friend cinnamon roll (best cinnamon roll I've ever had)!

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!!!

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.
