Local Favorites

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 viewThe Watch. Awesome 

BreweryLow Tide Brewing.  Great selection of beers, dog friendly and they almost always have a food truck serving up delicious food.

ItalianWild Olive – Best.  Gnocchi.  EVER.

SeafoodBowen’s Island – Between the food, casual atmosphere and gorgeous views, it makes for a fantastic dinner spot.

MexicanZia Taqueria – I’ve never had a bad thing here but their queso cannot be beat.

SushiAji 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)

GreekStella’s – Whether it’s brunch or dinner, everything here is superb.

Breakfast: Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit – Two words:  Biscuit bowl
