This is a really cool spot with a great menu. Brooke was our server and she was the best! Very helpful and polite. The hangover hashbrowns and the breakfast burrito were both awesome. Would come back to this place on any visit.

We stopped in here for dinner after a fun experience at The Final Door (an escape room experience which is only a few minutes away). My husband had the seafood macaroni and cheese with goat cheese and I had the chicken piccata.

I had to reserve a place for lunch for +/- 25 women for after a meeting. Cafe Strudel was less than a mile from our meeting place. I asked to book the inside room, rather than the patio, as it's in the 90's here. The room holds 18 but we squeezed in 26. The restaurant is very popular and it... More

Located on State Street, a short walk from the Meeting Street intersection and the Meeting/Gervais Street Bridge. Convenient to The Vista area of Columbia and the State House grounds and USC. In the heart of Cayce. The food is absolutely excellent, Wifi accessible, and a great place for date night or girl's night out. A former first place winner for... More

The hangover hashbrowns are my favorite. Great menu with lots to choose from. Great place for brunch too.
