The food was awesome. Service was good. It's a perfect low-key Cafe. During weekends expect to wait for a table.

Stopped for lunch after visiting plantation. Spaghetti special, salads, and burgers were all delicious. Excellent service. Will try dessert next time. Highly recommend if you are looking for a casual place to eat. Locals favorite.

This is a very casual diner type place. We waited for maybe 30 minutes for a table. It was Sat around noon. They serve breakfast items all day. We both had a lobster omelettes. Excellent!!! We will go back when in the area again.

We ate here two mornings in a row. We left our hotel early to beat the traffic to the Planation and the Gardens and ate here. Food was good. Service was good. Almost no one else when we arrived at 7 a.m.

We stopped to have lunch after a plantation tour. So glad we did! Breakfast served all day and so many daily specials to choose from. Large portions! Homemade bread! Nothing fancy, but a great place to eat!!!

Most excellent brunch today at the Bear E Patch Cafe. Our friend loved her sausage gravy and biscuits. Hubby was thrilled with this sausage, scrambled eggs, French toast and grits. My Virginia Omlet was terrific and big! They were happy to substitute Cheddar for Swiss. I don't know where they get their grits, but they're exceptional. Biscuits were not perfect... More

I have passed this restaurant countless times and never considered it until some work colleagues wanted to stop for lunch. I had no idea that this is "the" place to be in West Ashley! Good food and service.

The BEST potato salad ever. I am never disappointed with the food or the service. Lobster bisque is phenomenal, along with the egg salad BLT.
