The food and service is exceptional! We finally decided to try dinner and its frankly impressive. The expanded menu offers something for everyone. The least expensive thing is the truffle popcorn and its so delicious.

We loved the lobster quesidilla, steak various seafood dinners and even the burgers.

The problem lies with saving room for dessert. I'm ok skipping the sweets but everyone else wasn't. Creme brûlée was apparently fantastic. We had several people and still didn't wait long on our food.

This little cafe plates food with big taste. Fresh ingredients and new approaches to old favorites made my experience so enjoyable that I wanted to go back again, and soon! A lot of Charleston natives frequent the more popular bistro across the street with its larger bar area, but the cafe is not to be missed for its food selection and comparative price points. Also open for lunch and dinner, the cafe's food does not disappoint. The service is not as efficient as other places, but they will accommodate requests to be quick, for example if you need to get to another event. The specialty cocktails are divine. The dessert selection could be broadened, but who needs the calories? Have another glass or wine or aperitif and enjoy!

They were really very slow, (oops, had to take a 2-hour lunch) but I understand the kitchen was working on 4 catering jobs that day. Food was exceptional. Our group of 5 tried multiple appetizers that were all very good. We had a variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches, and all were very good. I had a coffee to go that was quite weak and not very hot. They have a good selection of bakery items; I tried a 7-layer cookie - it was good but not great. Good selection of beers and wines. Parking is limited and the restaurant is small.

This cafe in Charleston is absolutely worth trying. We were so delighted with the food quality, selection and service. This is just a little spot that is comfortable. Kick back and relax here with good teas and wine. It left us with a great impression. I don't think it will disappoint you. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
