Jessica took care of us - was attentive - helped with suggestions - and along with the... More

On a road trip, it's not always easy to find a restaurant with gluten free options. I was thrilled to find Five Loaves. The service was quick and friendly; the food delicious. The place is small and appears very popular as it was packed on a Thursday night. They don't take reservations but will put your name on a list... More

We are visiting Charleston and opted for a late dinner here and it was the right choice. Our entrees included Roasted Pork Saltimbocca, chicken Paillard, and Chicken Cobb Salad with half Chicken Salad Croissant. Praises go to the Paillard and the Saltimbocca, but the chicken salad was less than perfect....too dry and too heavily seasoned for our Southern tastes. We... More

Fair prices, generous portions, and good food. My mother and sister had soup and sandwiches, which they enjoyed greatly. I had a delicious chicken dish with mashed potatoes. The severs were knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. All in all a great place for lunch or dinner in downtown Charleston.

Started off with their soup, I had the mushroom and my wife had the tomato tarragon w crab, neither of us were overly impressed. Not the best, but not the worst we've ever had. We then tried the pork sandwich, special of the day and once again, same comment from both of us. nothing special. I guess with all the... More

My family and I visited today for lunch. The food was amazing! Everything was fresh, the fruit was ripe and sweet, even the kids tortellini was delicious! The servers were friendly and attentive. The only downside was the lack of parking spaces, but it was worth driving around a few blocks to find a spot.

We stopped in for lunch with a large party. We had to wait, but I wasn't upset once I was done. The food all looked great and mine was great as well. All fresh ingredients and a fun atmosphere. Don't miss out on the dessert! Good place to grab a bite of really good fare.

I have had lunch at Five Loaves a couple of times and the food is consistently good. The wait times on Saturday can be a deterrent and I'm not sure it's worth a long wait especially with so many great restaurants in Charleston. But each menu item is as good as it sounds!
