Meals were excellent. Had the salmon, it was cooked perfectly. Service was great too. Cozy little place, doesn't seat many so probably hard to get a table during peak times.

With SO many restaurants to choose from in Charleston it can be a bit overwhelming. Im certain you will be pleased with the Cru Cafe. It is a cozy little restaurant in a renovated historic house. We had a salad and sandwich for lunch and both of us ate every last morsel on our plates and even ordered dessert. Staff was friendly and efficient. We didn't have reservations (lunch) but they were able to offer us porch or bar seating. Yum!

First time here. It is a smaller place in a restored home. You can still see all the old charm of the house. You can see into the kitchen. Our meals were wonderful. We had the special, which was fabulous.
