Dining out can be very expensive in Charleston. For lunch, visitors usually don’t want to spend a ton of money, yet they don’t want to go to a chain restaurant either.
Here are my top 5 favorite places to go for lunch in downtown Charleston:
Centrally located on Broad Street, this quaint cafe serves French classics at low prices. Dining is European, meaning the space is crowded and most likely you will be sitting at a bar top knocking elbows with a stranger. But the food is so delicious. I’ve ordered the ham croq’ monsieur on sourdough with melted cheese ($6) and an Earl Grey iced tea ($3). Vegetarian and vegan options are available.
