We wanted to grab a quick sandwich, and Caviar & Bananas is always the perfect spot for that. We had the Cuban and an Italian meat combo (can't remember the name) and both were fantastic. Shop is super cute with all kinds of goodies that you can take home for yourself or as a little souvenir to take home (bourbon... More

This place gets packed so people must love it but I didn't see its charms. I was super excited to try their gluten free pastries but they weren't that exciting and they both had almonds on them which I shouldn't have (I'm not allergic, I just scraped them off the top). Their coffee was okay too but it's served so... More

Passing through thinking about lunch. We had the Italian and cuban sandwiches. My wife liked the Italian but I raved about the Cuban. Best sandwich I could have had. The people behind the counter and making food were the happiest people in the Market. What a gem of a place.

We were told to go here by our concierge because it was on our way to our waking tour. It is a market that sells fresh local food and great coffee. I asked Joe who was working behind the register about sandwiches on their menu. He suggested the duct sandwich. It was awesome. We also had chicken salad and a... More

We didn't actually eat here. It is in the city market and I was looking to buy Caviar. They don't sell Caviar. They also don't sell Bananas.

I don't usually return to a place because I'm looking forward to having a salad again, but almost every time I come to Charleston I make a special trip here! The salad bar is divine, and everything is always so fresh! However, although I came in expecting to get my usual salad, they had a brunch menu up and I... More

This is a most amazing store, deli and take away. I ate here 3 times while in Charleston for the weekend. Truly beautiful displays of food with a deli, coffee shop, catered salads and fabulous splits of champagne and wine to enjoy with your meal at grocery store prices!

The wait for a sandwich was a little long. The food itself was great though! Nice fresh snacks that are not cheap grab-and-go type items.

They provided catered salads and sandwiches last week. Really good and I would have picked one up in the City Market but never got time.
