no frills, patchy service, noisy, tripped over a bike parked inside the front door, coffee not great, but then, they are basically on a college campus catering to that crowd.

If you're tired of seafood and would like to eat cheap and local, go try Jacks Cafe on George and King. Cafe juicy burgers $4, cafe style breakfast cheap! Jack still cooks behind the counter at the griddle. If you're looking for fancy, or updated, don't eat there. It's where alot of the college kids eat for great food and great prices and no reservations. One of the waitresses even used her tip money to pay for a local mans breakfast because he had no money.

We felt like we had stepped back in time when we entered Jack's Cafe. The atmosphere was nostalgic and Jack himself was working the grill. The waitresses were friendly and helpful I ordered the turkey sandwich with giblet gravy and it was excellent. The prices were reasonable. It was a very pleasant experience for my whole group and we would definitely go back next time we visit Charleston.

First of all if you saw what the bathroom looked like you wouldn't even eat there. Unfortunately I didn't see the bathroom until after I was done with my meal. The breakfast sandwich was made on a lenders type bagel and not tasty at all. The meal for two was $14, way overpriced for what we got and how poor things tasted. The waitress didn't even offer to provide us a refill on coffee.

Jack's Cafe is a great breakfast restaurant near the College of Charleston that offers wonderful meals at an affordable price. Also, I would recommend their milkshakes
