The food at this restaurant is not only fresh but it is also delicious! I love the fact that they offer a soup sampler because I could NOT choose just one. The salads are very large with fresh ingredients. I have been twice and have...More

I love that Five Loaves is not in the middle of touristy Charleston, but an easy walk to get to from all the hotels! This is a well run cafe with fresh food-soups, salad and delicious sandwiches all very reasonably priced! I love how unique...More

We checked into our hotel quite late and found this terrific restaurant right down the street. The food on the menu was unique and intriguing. My favorite was the sweet pea falafel. Delicious! Despite being tired and starving, the atmosphere in this restaurant put us...More

I sent my meal back, for perhaps the second or third time in my life. The grits were inedible, dry and tasteless. The garlic mashed potatoes were unsalted, completely bland mush, must have been made from a box. The tomato soup with crab tasted like...More

Although portions may be a tad small - we had salads - but sandwiches seemed decent in size. We had great service and enjoyed our meetup with friends. Charleston was a halfway point for all of us so this worked well.

The portions are small and it was too expensive for what you get. I got a sampler of soups and the flavors weren’t very good. More like watered down vegetables and cheese.
