Just another breakfast to me. Maybe I should try the Chicken & waffles next time. The chips were a unique twist.

Some friends and I found this place about 4 years ago. The food tasted great then, and after being deployed for a job in Savannah where I was two hours away, some coworkers and I decided to take the 2 hour trip so they could try it. It was still just as good as it was the last time I... More

Found this cafe by chance on our way to Florida. Had a late breakfast. I was with the others and we all were very pleased with our meals. Some unusual items on the menu, I would suggest the corn beef hash...delicious. Also the ice tea is brewed in house with a hint of cinnamon and orange peel. We thought at... More

We have visited Charleston's Cafe three times for breakfast and we will go back again! Everything is freshly prepared and their sweet potato biscuits are a treat. My husband had the Ravenel breakfast sandwich and it was huge and delicious. I had an omelette that was perfectly prepared. The fruit was fresh and the coffee was strong! All in all... More

Charleston Cafe is the absolute best! We love their atmosphere, staff, service and food. Our go-to is the Shrimp and Grits. Best in town by far! So good we had them cater our wedding and we try to go on breakfast dates to Charleston Cafe every weekend (though lunch is just as amazing). ❤

Delicious breakfast. Everyone had something different, grapefruit granola, eggs Benedict, omelette, corned beef hash. We all shared the fried cinnamon roll and the biscuits & gravy. All extremely tasty! Family friendly too!

Heading home to Murrells Inlet late one morning and was looking for breakfast. Found this on Trip Advisor. Went there and could see it's where the locals go to eat. Very friendly server and very friendly owner, Amber. Been opened for ten years so must be doing something right. My omelet was delicious and my wife had French toast. But... More
