Our family dinner was delicious! When we walked in all the servers have big smiles and warm greetings. Our server was Melanie and she was excellent! Each of us order different dishes, and all couldn't have been better. A little side note, there is a little parking lot right across the street with free parking. We are local, so finding free parking is an added bonus in our book!

This neighborhood bistro is a VERY popular place any night of the week--and worth the wait (no reservations). Every dish is artfully prepared, and the staff genuinely cares if everything is to your liking. We were three couples enjoying select wine and beers, with appetites for an array of seafood and steak enters, as well as a couple house specialties.
The seafood and steak plates were prepared to perfection! The Cajun risotto from the "specials" board, however, smacked of having been "stretched" to meet demand by being diluted with broth. However, out of two visits, that was the ONLY glitch, and when it was brought to the server's attention, the charge was removed from the bill.
On to dessert. The coconut cake is primo, even for those who are not cake fans. The key lime pie was inconsistent--unremarkable the first night, and deliciously zest the next. Of course, you can't miss with fruit crumble or anything chocolate. Go!

I always enjoy going here . The food is reliably good. The service has always been good. I believe the coconut cake is the best in Charleston.

This is a very casual, small dining venue with only about 15 or so tables on a neighborhood corner. Parking may be dicey, and waiting must take place outside, But it's worth it, in my opinion.

My wife recommended this place because she has celiac disease and it was on her gluten-free-friendly list. For example, all of their seven soups are gluten-free. The menu is also vegetarian-friendly. Tomato soup with crabmeat is excellent. Portabella goat cheese burger is very good. In fact, all of their at least 8 salads and 12 sandwiches are outstanding. Many different types of bread. They have interesting daily specials. Rreasonable prices.

I highly recommend this establishment.

A delightful start to our Sunday in Mt Pleasant. We sipped on mimosas and enjoyed and wonderfully prepared brunch. The mushroom soy dressing for our salad was very tasty and unique. Pleasant atmosphere and great service as well. Win win situation.
