Great service: friendly and fast. Enormous menu with all the standards plus daily specials. Fair prices for the quality and quantity. We tried the shrimp and grits. A+! The hollandaise in our Benedict was perfect.

Love going here for breakfast. Lots of great choices. It's really crowded on the weekends, but the service is great and they seem to turn tables quickly.

The avocado toast is wonderful. They know how to cook an egg, which is rare in Charleston. Nice atmosphere and good service. Oh, and EXCELLENT coffee.

Excellent food and quick service. This is the best breakfast restaurant in the city. Also, good coffee and always a spare paper laying around to read.

Menu has lots to chose from, with some healthy options as well. Servers know there stuff and they are always smiling and very personable. At times it can be very crowded. Prices a little on the high side.

....expensive. This is THE go-to place to go and be seen by the local power players. Servers are great but management can sometimes be too impersonal and uncaring about customer service. Food is cutting edge and "big city". Often crowded.
