We were delighted to find this spot after Magnolia Garden. The menu was small but done well. The service was the bartender. Overall a nice meal with vegetarian options.

Went here for brunch and sat outside. This place focuses on organic and local and the pizza was great. The atmosphere was very nice and comfortable. The service could have been a bit better, but it was a bit crowded and it is not necessary a huge place, so it's a fair trade. Will definitely go again.

We stumbled upon the place on a drive out to Magnolia Plantation and what a great little stumble it was! We both had scrambled, mine was the Greens and Grains Scramble and my companion had the salmon. The food was great and the service was excellent!!

This organic based comfort food is the best! We went there for breakfast two days in a row. I had their fresh squeezed orange juice and steel oats with blueberries, seeds, and honey. My husband had the turkey sausage egg scramble. All were outstanding. The cafe was clean and the servers were very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this... More

We had a small layover before going on a cruise and decided to eat here because of the previous reviews for GF meals. We were not disappointed, the food was very good and the service was fantastic. Meals were a little pricey ($15ish / meal)but in our opinion worth every bit of it

I'm not really into the vegan/vegetarian scene but my wife is, sooooo..... I must say, this place was awesome, the food, the service, the atmosphere. I am actually looking forward to going back and trying something else.

Stopped in on my way home this evening. Jazz playing, doors open, not overly crowed tonight, but it is a Thursday. Had a Mediterranean style bowl, served over couscous. It was very fresh and an ample serving. Topped it off with their homemade ginger cake. It was served warm and topped with whipped cream and a strawberry. Always friendly. Great... More

We met family for lunch at this place. It was a real surprise that the "healthy" choices were actually delicious. Loved the spaghetti squash and fresh fruit. Other in out group had the wraps. Great service and healthy, tasty food!

Good wine list, excellent food served by nice and friendly wait staff, in an informal and cheery place. Nothing fancy here, but great salmon, good chicken curry on rice, terrific side dishes, marvelous salads and best chicken salad sandwich on toasted whole grain bread in the area. You will enjoy this spot, which is also open for brunch and breakfast.

We were staying in Charleston for 4 nights, and the 3 of us ate here the first night. It was SO GOOD, and friendly service by Aria, that this is the ONLY place that we came back to eat again during our stay. Two of us eat Whole Food Plant Based (like vegan but NO processed foods, no oils), so... More
