“Cute little chill spot with amazing food.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

My friend and I wanted a quick bite to eat before we got tattoos and came across this little needle in a haystack! The music was great and so was the service. The atmosphere is even better! Definitely visit while you're here!

“Diamond in the Rough”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Our B and B host said this was a great spot. While the setting is a little odd the staff are friendly and engaging . Lobster roll was killer maybe the best I have had. Our son declared that this was his favorite place to eat! In all of Charleston!

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

The zucchini sandwich is my favorite. Delicious! I am usually a "meat-atarian" but I will get the zucchini sandwich again as soon as possible. My new favorite spot for lunch.

“A Laundromat Diner to Love”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This place is located in the front of a laundromat. Do NOT let that put you off. This is an amazing place for lunch. Everything is prepared fresh and is excellent. The caprese sandwich with fig balsamic jam is special. Try it with their basil limeade that is a nice riff on lemonade. It was so good we went there twice in the three days we were in town. The only regret is we didn't have room to try their custom custards. Don't miss this place for lunch!
