We had a delicious meal at this popular spot. We did not have reservations, but only had to wait a few minutes on a busy night during restaurant week.

Driving by this place is very easy to miss. It is tucked away in a strip mall and does not appear to offer anything special. The interior is also no frills but the food is excellent. As they say do not judge a book by its cover...

Although I found the food to be good, the overall impression I get of this place is 'more is better'. I don't subscribe to that school of thought when dining out, however. Sandwiches are large but served on way too much bread. Soup, although good, I'd would not rave about my tomato-basil bowl nor the blue-crab-meat soup we had on this occasion. I don't get the 5-stars that so many 'size' conscious diners find so attractive about this place. Wine by the glass is a good value. There is way too much other creative places to find a lunch in Charleston or Mt. Pleasant.

A modest litle restaurant, seemingly run by young people and students has the perfect lunch. Choose three sampler-size soups from a list of five-10, and a half sandwhich. The tomato and crab is my favorite soup. Along with the BLT, it can't be beat. There are value-priced wines thad add to the experience and still leave you with something in your wallet. Charleston's restaurants are great, but not always cheap. Five Loaves is a good deal.

midweek lunch during our vacation in South Carolina. Five Loaves was recommended by a local friend. We had a lovely healthy lunch without losing any of the Yum. It was raining and chilly enough for soup - we tried 3, all of which were delicious. They offered quite a variety We also shared some sandwiches - ingredients were fresh and flavorful. Just the right fuel for more King St shopping. Lovely staff too.
