Excellent choice for lunch or brunch, all dishes excellently prepared with amazingly creative soups! A must stop for us whenever in Mt. Pleasant or Charleston.

First there was the 30 minute wait. Then we finally got sat down. Ten minutes till our existence was acknowledged, water arrived and order taken. It was another good 20 minutes before we got our food on the table. Food was ok, but nothing close to the hype. Not coming back.

The food was good and organic. However, being nickel and dime charged was a bit shocking when we got our bill. I ordered a half croissant sandwich and was charged 25 cents for a "half" of croissant. Then my dad asked for Dijon mustard and was charged 25 cents. Never were we informed of the little charges. 50 cents is... More

I came to Five Loaves for brunch one day with a friend and we loved it! We went not knowing much of the hype around it and what we got was a quaint restaurant, with a line out the door waiting for them to open, and delicious food to boot. The service was a little slow at first, but I... More

Small place though so going early or just not prime time is a good plan as the line is often out the door.

Fifth visit over three years, this time on a Saturday night. Compared to visits 2, 3 and 4, this fifth at Five was the best. First, they offered 1/2 price wine bottles on a Saturday night, certainly the best wine deal in Charleston as Five's bottles are priced near retail to begin with (we google).

We were heading back from Disney and I did not want fast food so we drove out of our way to eat here (based on TA reviews) and it was SO worth it. The food was excellent and the staff very, very friendly. We can't wait to go back!

Me and my friend came to have dinner. We got mussels in white wine sauce as appetizer. I got shrimp gnocchi and my friend got bistro steak everything was excellent. Jessica took care of us, she was really nice and friendly, we got salted caramel cheesecake for birthday of my friend. Great price for the quality
