This place is like a Panera Bread on steroids! Super tasty food, great quality of ingredients, awesome service. I cannot say enough about their soups and entrees. Been to both locations (Mount Pleasant and downtown Charleston) and both offered the same experience.

Stopped for dinner on the early side which was good because by the time we left it was packed--on a week night. Great chicken marsala, everyone enjoyed their food. A bit crowded and noisy though.

Soups are very flavorful! I especially loved the Mexican Chicken Chili with the Chicken Salad Club as a combo. So many great items to pick from!

We had lunch here before we left Charleston. I tried the trio of soups, and every one was delicious. I also appreciated that they offered gluten free bread for my turkey sandwich, which was very tasty. Our only complaint was that my husband's roast beef...More
