We stopped in here for coffee and danish one morning and it was really great. They warmed the danish up, and the coffees were incredible. Would come back. Great setting, great service.

Coffee, craft beers, local art, good music, and a beautiful courtyard all in one great location! It's like a real life Central Perks-a place to grab a beer or coffee with friends or get some work done in a cool atmosphere. There's no wifi so bring your own hotspot or enjoy some good old fashion conversation!!

Stopped by to have a iced tea and a cookie. My granddaughter had a turkey sandwich. They are premade but it was good. Due to college area they have to have things ready.

I love the decor and location of Kudo, but the coffee and food just left me wanting. The staff seemed very harried. The customer service was lacking, and I felt like taking my order was an inconvenience for them. My friend ordered a Ham and cheese croissant. It was microwaved prior to being served to us. Which left it a... More

We have been visiting CHARLESTON every year for the last 10 years and were excited to find this little coffee shop that we instantly fell in love with a few years back. The coffee/lattes were exactly how we liked them- a dark sweet roast espresso with perfect froth and beautiful latte art. We made our yearly visit only to find... More

Really good coffee and espresso. They play pretty good music and have a nice patio also. Sometimes the baristas seem miserable.

Just off Marion Square, Kudu is just the place for a decent coffee or beer. Hardly worth going anywhere else!
