4.5 Stars on Yelp

If you are a fan of paninis, wraps, or salads then look no further than the Persimmon Cafe.’ It is described by one yelper as a “lovely hole-in-the-wall, trendy, hipster (but in a good way) little sandwich shop.” Makes you want to go, right.



Cru Cafe

18 Pinckney St, Charleston, SC l 843-534-2434

4.5 Stars on Yelp

Self-described as “Charleston’s home to some of the best gourmet comfort food in the Lowcountry.” Sounds good, right?!

A yelper had this to say about the atmosphere - 

This restaurant exceeded my expectations. I love the homey environment-- it feels like it's in an old house.” And apparently, from the other reviewers, this is the place to go if you are a foodie. Oh and the website mentions that reservations are strongly encouraged.



Five Loaves Café

43 Cannon St, Charleston, SC l 843-937-4303

4.5 Stars on Yelp

Vegan and gluten-free options may be found here. There’s even a juice bar!! Described as a “quaint café, great service, and excellent food!” I think we know this is definitely one to try!



Brown Dog Deli

40 Broad St, Charleston, SC l 843-853-8081

4.5 Stars on Yelp

From the website they describe their signature dishes in the following way: “The Muffaletta is un-paralleled in the city and his Curry Chicken Salad is another top menu item. In addition, he loves to incorporate great Asian influences and, most importantly, the great Southern BBQ cooking he grew up eating.”

And we simply must share this Yelper’s review. It’s too good not to share –

“Holy sandwiches, Batman. 

I always dreamed that a perfect sandwich utopia existed. A place where you can sit down, be totally confounded by what to order because literally everything on the menu sounds incredible and, when it arrives, it's everything you hoped it'd be and more. A place that has perfectly build sandwiches and a comfortable atmosphere, but that also supplies your favorite local beer to sip on while you come to Jesus over a sandwich.  

I never thought I'd find such a place, but heaven is real and it's in Charleston.” Micah N. Asheville, NC 4.20.19
