Coffee: You may have heard of Bitty and Beau’s when it’s founder, Amy Wright, was named CNN’s 2017 Hero of the Year. They recently expanded a shop in Charleston and not only is the coffee delicious but I dare you to find a kinder and sweeter staff.
Lunch spot: Verde. The salads are great and you can get them made into wraps, which is good for days that I have to eat on the go (aka in the car). On days when I have time to sit down and eat lunch – Five Loaves Cafe is in regular rotation.
Pizza: Tie between Crust and D’Allesandro’s. Both serve pizza but they’re uniquely different which is why I cannot chose just one place. D’Als also holds a special place in my heart because their classic cheese pizza kept me fed during my college days and Crust has delicious food with killer daily specials.
Happy hour spot: Barsa. $2 off glasses of wine for happy hour? Sold!
Happy hour spot with a view: The Watch. Awesome
Brewery: Low Tide Brewing. Great selection of beers, dog friendly and they almost always have a food truck serving up delicious food.
Italian: Wild Olive – Best. Gnocchi. EVER.
Seafood: Bowen’s Island – Between the food, casual atmosphere and gorgeous views, it makes for a fantastic dinner spot.
Mexican: Zia Taqueria – I’ve never had a bad thing here but their queso cannot be beat.
Sushi: Aji Asian Bistro – They have some of the best specialty rolls that I have ever had (and I’ve eaten a lot of sushi in my day)
Greek: Stella’s – Whether it’s brunch or dinner, everything here is superb.
Breakfast: Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit – Two words: Biscuit bowl
