Find this place in the Great Hall at the City Market. Always busy because the food is good! We inconvenienced the two gals working tonight and asked for a Cubano panini and a Cobb salad about closing time. No problem. Our food was freshly prepared...More

The Cuban panini sandwich is our favorite item on the menu. The menu consists of many sandwiches, salads, and many various healthy items. It's a great place to grab a bite on the go. You can find a snack counter and tables in close proximity...More

Charleston's mini answer to Dean and Deluca. Very good light menu for quick bites, lunch, sweets. All in a typically cool Charleston 21stC, Manhattan-like decor--no wonder since the place's creators came straight from the Big Apple.

It seems like it's frequent by locals. The salads definitely fresh. The cuban panini was very close to authentic. The French dip very tasty. The carrot ginger soup fell flat. Overall, for the price this place is worth the stop. They have a coffee bar.
