Love the spot here on East Bay street, and I love that they have wide-open seating when the weather is good. However, the coffee is mediocre and definitely an afterthought. I actually thought it was a bar when I went there, not a coffee shop by any means. But if your standards are not super high for espresso, you will certainly enjoy the setting.

This little French style Cafe is a wonderful place to go, for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine ! It's open door style setting provides for a way to sit and admire the architecture Charleston has to offer ! Just stop in and speak to the waitresses and the owner who all are very hospitable ! When your visit is over you will feel like your leaving family behind ! You will never forget East Bay Meeting House !! Your Heart will always be there !!!! :)

Elegant bistro in the French Quarter. I had the salmon on bagel and my husband had the french toast. We were not disappointed. Both were very tasty and the service was wonderful.

This section of downtown Charleston is the French Quarter because many French merchants had businesses here through it's history. The Meeting House is designed to be reminiscent of a Paris bistro because the owner loves the idea, and it works. As soon as you sit down, you can relax and enjoy the refined comfortable atmosphere. The coffee, wine, and drinks are all fine, and the pastry chef who makes all the cakes and treats, is very skilled. There is no rush here, and that is what reminds me most of Paris.

This is a small elegant spot to have a sandwich or coffee while shopping or sightseeing. We had coffee and wine here and returned for a light lunch the next day. The prices are a little expensive. A club sandwich is nine dollars. However, it isn't rushed and part of what you are buying is the chance to relax and enjoy the Charleston life.
