Friends from out of town came to visit Chas over the weekend. It was MUSC graduation weekend and we were afraid many places would be booked, so we chose the Five Loaves since they do not take reservations. Good choice. We showed up at 6:30...More

We stopped in on our first day in Charleston. I had a half portion of the ham and brie sandwich with a cup of broccoli and cheddar soup - it was a great value, comparable to Panera, but SO much better! The baguette tasted fresh...More

We enjoyed our meal so much at this cafe, we returned the very next day. Fresh, delicious, healthy ingredients that tasted fantastic. Try the chicken salad on your choice of bread and the tomato crab soup. Outstanding! Excellent, friendly service too!
