We had a great lunch at five loaves. Tasty and very reasonable. We were staying near Frances Marion Square and this gave us a chance to walk to a different area of Charleston but anyone staying further away could get there easily with the free trolley. The food and service were excellent. Feels like a neighbourhood restaurant. Superb restaurants in charleston and this felt like a break for our wallets without sacrificing quality.

The only good thing any of us had was the potato and broccoli soup. The pork tenderloin was dry. Nothing had flavor. It was not worth the money they charge.

Ouch! This hurts to hear you had such a bad experience. I appreciate your honesty, and hope you consider giving us another chance. Which location did you dine at?

We chose this place based on the reviews and the location away from the crowded downtown core, and we were not disappointed. The food was truly brilliant; a good value and well worth the relatively long walk from our hotel near Broad Street. It was still busy when we arrived, but the "community table" in the back was wide open and turned out to be a great place to enjoy our dinner.

My mother-in-law and I just had lunch at Five Loaves. We loved it!!! We shared a bowl of tomato tarragon soup with a crab meat garnish. It was delicious. I had half a portobello mushroom and goat cheese sandwich and my mother-in-law had half an eggplant and asparagus salad. We enjoyed these very much too. There were many sandwiches, salads and soups to choose from and we especially appreciated the fact that we could choose a half sandwich or half salad. So, we were able to try more. In addition to several vegetarian friendly choices, there were plenty with meat that I know my husband would enjoy. Our waitress was very efficient and knowledgable about the menu. And, there was a convenient parking lot right across from the restaurant. The restaurant had a funky, neighborhood atmosphere. We will definitely return on our next trip to Charleston.

We loved the inventive taste combinations we found at this little neighborhood place. Get there early since they only take reservations on Valentine's Day and fill up quickly.
