We were greeted and seated right away. The staff were friendly and very attentive to us for our lunch. We ordered the BLT and the club sandwiches. Both of these were solid hits!

With a great location, a cozy/intimate atmosphere and old world charm we excepted to have a wonderful evening. Almost every aspect of our experience was a huge disappointment. First we arrived about 10 min before our reservation time but we're seated promptly. Great start. Then we waited 20 min for someone to take our drink order. That set the pace... More

This was a great place for brunch, very cozy and comfortable with a French cafe vibe. The food was simple and good. This cafe would be best for small groups.

After walking all day,this was the perfect place to stop after lunch,they offer teas,coffee,and of course if are ready for a glass of wine or your favorite drink,they have it all.We order one of the special coffee and dessert(they have many),and was absolutely delish .The service was great,and the atmosphere is very romantic.Just like a french bistro.

This is a relatively small and quiet neighborhood restaurant and bar. For those of us who treasure good acoustics and good food, it's heaven. I live in Charleston, and I often recommend this place. Go there; it's great.

Just out for a walk with my wife and dropped in because it looked so cute. We split a smoked trout plate--it was superb. Hit the spot. The decor and atmosphere was sophisticated yet inviting and casual. Will happily return.

Great Atmosphere and good food and service!! We were celebrating a sibling reunion and felt safe without the accompany of a man, since our brother had a medical emergency and couldn't join us in Charleston at the last minute!
