Excelente!! Visited this place many different times during my recent trips to SC. Coffee is the best in town and the food has a lot of Caribbean in it. Don't miss it!

I am not sure... there are black beans, plantains, and some other "sides" that could be your main meal, but not sure if they are cooked with a meat stock or not. You could always go there for a coffee and dessert - rice... More
