Persimmon Cafe has made such a new for themselves in the short amount of time that they have been open! They use fresh and local ingrediants that you can really taste in every bite! The menu is slightly limited but each item is guaranteed to be delicious every time. They are rotate daily specials including blow torch ahi tuna tacos which are like heaven to your taste buds, I wish these were a permanent menu item! Persimmon always offers a variety of drinks included iced drinks,coffee,and specialty drinks like vanilla lemonade! Unfortunately they do not have an expresso maker so no dirty chais etc.. The staff if always friendly and efficient and Robert the owner is passionate and you can tell he loves what he does! I would reccomend trying Persimmon out if you havent yet!

This is an adorable little spot with awesome sandwiches and soups. I got the Caprese plus tomato bisque--it was amazing. Definitely check it out!

While waiting for my clothes to wash n dry, this convenient little sandwich place was in the laundromat. Really good but they should expand their menu.

We were in town for only a day and needed a quick lunch spot. Found this place on Yelp. I couldn't have been more satisfied. The sandwiches were some of the best I've ever had. And, the season pumpkin caramel custard sent our experience over the top. The staff was super nice and personable. Made you feel more like a friend than a customer. If in Charleston, make an effort to stop in this little cafe.

This place is great and don't let the fact there is a laundry mat in the building bother you. It just feels right, being between MUSC and the College of Charleston . Any of the paninis are good and the nutella shake is what you think it would be. Just try it and then sleep on it. This is a great quick lunch when you need to be around MUSC and a really quick walk from campus.
