We will never visit Charleston again without stopping here! I felt like I had been transported back to France.

I enjoyed their weekend dinner special - glass of house wine, salad, bouillibase and french bread. $22 I think for the meal and it was excellent. Also indulged in a freshly made croissant filled with the homemade dark chocolate filling. Decadent and so worth it!!
