Six of my family went to the Charleston's Cafe for Sunday brunch. The food was deemed fabulous unanimously, and the service was great. We will definitely go back again.

We purposely went there for breakfast as it is close to Boone Hall Plantation. From cooked sausage dipped in pancake batter, French toast and shrimp and grits (with eggs of course), no one was disappointed in their choice. They also serve American Classic Tea which is grown on Wadmalaw Island on the Charleston Tea Plantation. If you miss it in... More

Charleston's Cafe is fantastic! The menu represents a creative take on local cuisine, but they also offer traditional breakfast staples. They are popular among locals and tourists (sometimes the wait can be long)!but cleverly combat this by offering coffee, juice, and water for those waiting for a table. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and casual. For me, the service is... More

The only reason this place does not get all five stars is its shopping mall location. After hearing really good things, four friends arrived here for an early Easter morning breakfast. SInce the parking lot was already full, something told me that we might be in for a treat. We were! After a 20 minute wait, complete with free mini... More

We had passed up going back to Another Broken Egg to try this restaurant. We were sort of disappointed. The french toast I had taste average. The eggs were cafeteria syle. The sausages were great. They got pretty crowded after a while.

We found this on Tripadvisor and thought we would try it out before a day of touring Boone Hall plantation and Charleston. We walked right in and were seated right away. We were a party of 6. There were a few tables outside to eat. The décor is eclectic and is in need of a redo. Kinda looked run down.... More

We stopped on our way to Boone Plantation and we're glad we did! My biscuits and gravy were wonderful. My husbands omelette was huge and also very good! Wonderful little cafe with large menu to choose from, a daily special board and great food

Forget your diet, this is a southern breakfast at its best. My favorite is the Southern Benedict with fried green tomatoes, but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We have always had excellent service.

Enjoyed breakfast at the Charleston Cafe. I had the Ambers Choice Benedict. Seafood for breakfast is my kind of low country food. Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Will return on our next visit to the area.
