Enjoy $3 house wine with your meal and save the cost of a tip. They don't allow it. Very small with limited seating. French inspired food, mainly breads, meats, cheeses, soups and salads. Popular with locals.

Specials of the day with soup or salad and a glass of wine $10! Communal tables, fun to meet people. No tipping allowed. Meal was fantastic, coffee made in a french press was amazing.

We went in here because it was close and it had started to rain. What a gem! We had soup and salads, plus house wine. This is a French place. It is very tiny with a small kitchen. Everything we saw and tasted was just wonderful. Service was good, we were not rushed. Seemed to be a good number of... More

Not really sure what I expected but this place was kind of funky. Food was good, service was just OK. Seemed a little understaffed for lunch time. Had a bean soup that was very good and a delicious sandwich which was nicely toasted but the cheese was melted on top of the sandwich which I thought odd but figured maybe... More

I was in Charleston with my husband and children (16, 12, and 5) and finally had lunch at Gaulart & Maliclet. Not sure why I waited so long! The kids all had Ham and Cheese Croissants, which were a big hit. I had a most delicious sandwich that is not on the menu they give you at the table, but... More

After reading TA reviews about Gaulart & Macliet, I knew it would be a good place to get lunch while we were in town. TA did not steer me wrong and this was easily one of the tastiest lunches we have had in a long time (and didn't break the bank!). We both had the ham and cheese sandwiches, but... More

Busy, crowded and communal tables are always a dining turn off for me but they don't bother others and can be a selling point for some. We waited 15 minutes for a table, oops, for our three chairs as you do not get a table in this overpacked establishment. Service was extremely efficient and friendly and food was pretty good...

When you walk in it's super cute! And I never say the word cute. So trust me its eclectic-ly cute. The staff is super nice. They say not to tip there (it's like their slogan) but I always do because they're just super sweet. The have great teas, cheeses, sandwiches, wines...everything for relatively cheap. It's a great stop for that... More

Located near the south end of the main shopping area - Broad and King, this very small restaurant offers a French - ish flair for food. Offering just a few dishes with a daily special, you can get a very good meal here. Staff is very friendly. I went here mainly because when looking at the menu, the Gazpacho struck... More

This is a great local find - with a great friendly attmostphere. No reservation was needed, however it is not a large place. We sat with some locals that gave us good guidance on what to order, however I believe you will not go wrong with any meal they prepare. We will return!

Thank Suzie C
