School was out today so me and my one and only granddaughter and her other grandmother. The food was superb! We both had the surfside omlet, my baby had the chocolate short stack. The portions were large enough for leftovers. OMG we will come again

Found this coming back to Charleston from Magnolia Plantation. Small diner type restaurant. Service was both friendly and excellent. My wife (gluten free was necessary) enjoyed her salad while I had a burger. Were too full to try one of the scrumptious looking deserts.

We found the cafe on Yelp and it was rated well. Not hard to get to. Pretty popular. Crowded on a Tuesday morning after Labor Day. We were seated without any trouble. Despite being extremely busy, our server was fast and took care of us....More
