Charleston's mini answer to Dean and Deluca. Very good light menu for quick bites, lunch, sweets. All in a typically cool Charleston 21stC, Manhattan-like decor--no wonder since the place's creators came straight from the Big Apple.

It seems like it's frequent by locals. The salads definitely fresh. The cuban panini was very close to authentic. The French dip very tasty. The carrot ginger soup fell flat. Overall, for the price this place is worth the stop. They have a coffee bar.

Great place within walking distance of our hotel. Some fun options for breakfast and super coffees. They even had a gluten free muffin for my wife. Extra bonus!

I had a quick lunch here between business appointments and while it's not as good as their other locations, it's great to have a healthy option! They pre-cook the shrimp at main locale and bring over every day.

What an awesome concept. We went for early breakfast and it was outstanding. If I lived there it would be my regular morning stop for breakfast. The concept of a market/deli with everything from basic fruits to high end foo-foo selections such as proscuitto wrapped...More
