Consistently this restaurant prepares great food at reasonable prices. Lunch is so fun..always great sandwich specials and fresh soups. Half price bottles of wine every Tuesday and Friday nights until 8pm. A warm neighborhood restaurant.

This restaurant offers a great selection of soups, salads and sandwiches. The location in Mount Pleasant is dog friendly for sitting outside. Have eaten at the downtown Charleston location as well and it is outstanding also.

Based on reviews we decided to try Five Loaves. It's a cute little place with a nice dining area and bar. I think that their sandwiches and salads are probably their strong point. Dinners were very mediocre at best. We both had pasta dishes that were very bland, not much flavor. The high point was the dessert. The waitress told us they had recently hired a pastry chef. We tried the raspberry cheesecake and it was excellent.

The service was good, and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. I think we'd try it again for lunch, but there are too many other places for dinner in the area.

Five Loaves is not a large place and takes no reservations, so the wait times could be long if you want a table. However, we were able to find four seats immediately at the large bar, which offers the same menu. Wait time for our food was a little longer than we prefer, but the very good house wines and special beer selection made up for the wait. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. You can choose small or larger versions of the same dish, depending on your appetite. We had the salmon salad with crab tomato basil soup, which was a great combination.
Atmosphere was noisy because of the small size and the large number of diners. However, the reasonable prices for the high quality of food and beverages makes this place a best buy for the area.

We were looking for a really good dinner place in Mt. Pleasant. I wanted so much to like Five Loaves Cafe! It had great reviews on TripAdvisor, great menu descriptions, and lots of locally sourced food. However the tastes were really disappointing. The sauteed crab pasta was fairly tasty, but somewhat under-seasoned and with very little crab. However, it was better than the special of fish (tilapia?) with potatoes gratin. The potatoes were so undercooked that they were almost inedible. The fish was very ordinary in preparation. Best thing about the meal was the homemade focaccia bread. And at least the meal wasn't overpriced, so we didn't feel ripped off.
