Waiter was good, efficient and helpful. Introduced to Grits (tasted like sweet corn). Coffee was good - had an espresso machine and tea was acceptable. Specialist breakfast cafe with large following. Parking available - very popular.

We love to get brunch at Charleston Cafe. They have sweet and savory items. They have a good selection and it is always so good. They handle small or large groups.

The menu offered so many great choices. I really enjoyed the potato casserole- Kiawah style. Very thin potatoes fried crisp- think breakfast nachos! Coffee was typical diner coffee. I would definitely go again.

Good menu selection in a very casual atmospherer. Nothing fancy and parking can be a challenge in this small strip mall. Great place for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. No dinnernservice.
