“Great place to hang out and watch all of Charleston go by....”
Review of Taylor Books Cafe

Taylor Books Cafe
Ranked #3 of 7 Dessert in Charleston
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 October 2017

Everyone is welcome at the Taylor Books Cafe. Great coffee selection along with homemade scones, muffins and the like (the cheese and bacon are to die for) along with a few sweet treats, a few lunch plates and salad, but mostly just a place to get something to drink, spread out, do some work (or not) and enjoy the atmosphere. Live music on weekend nights, plus beer and wine you can have there or take downstairs to the Underground Cinema. Charleston is incredibly lucky to have Taylor Books.

My nephew performed here and a lot of the family came to support him. They have plenty of seating and it was a relaxing late afternoon. They have great pastries and beverages along with books, etc. The staff is very friendly.

Okay, it's a book store, but it's also a coffee shop and, my favorite, a wine bar at night although they do have some craft beers. Hang out amongst the books, strike up a conversation, isolate yourself in your own thoughts. This is the place to do this and more. Has pastries, chili and a whole bunch of other stuff if you're a mind to want that ....

I absolutely love this place! I might be a bit biased though because there's not a bookstore I won't call home. I especially love the local art. It's interesting, and at times, disturbing. It's wonderful!

Taylor Books is such a unique little place. I stopped in to kill time between meetings and ended up perusing for an hour looking at books before getting a coffee. Would be a perfect place to camp out with a laptop if you needed to get work done, or to meet up with friends. Likely would also make a great date location, with plenty of conversation starters surrounding you on all walls. Definitely worth stopping if you are in town.
