    Wonderful little place. Good was delicious for sure. Definitely a must try if you are in the area. A little off the beaten path so the atmosphere isn't very touristy, which was nice. Everything is a la cart so I ordered a half sandwich and a cup of soup and it was the perfect amount. The half sandwich on Udi's GF bread was actually a whole Udi's sandwich, guess they figure the Udi's bread is too small. Haha. Waitstaff was very knowledgeable and made sure to confirm my request for gluten free was due to an allergy not a preference. Will definitely be going back!

    Loved this place! Ended up eating here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner because we enjoyed it so much. They were very allergy conscious and had plenty of gluten free options on their menu. I did not have any issues with cross contamination either. Also they have half price bottles of wine on Wednesday nights which is an added bonus!

    I gave two stars just because the kitchen was way off the day I visited. The food however was yummy. The waitress brought out my salad with a piece of bread on top. And, I had requested hold the blue cheese, a request that was ignored. Probably need to be very careful and stress your allergies.

    We were incredibly impressed with everything at Five Loaves! This is my first time in Charleston, but my fiancé is here for the Navy. We saw the ratings and the marks of safe for Celiac and had to try it out. I've got Celiac and DH so I'm really sensitive. We had delicious food and great service. They even made sure to give us gluten free bread to dip in the olive oil/balsamic combo. We will be back, thank you for the great experience.

    Their SOUPS are awesome! All are gluten free and they usually have a vegan choice as well. I've tried the Mexican Chili, Tomato Tarragon with Crab, and Vegan roasted red pepper and black bean. All super yummy. Order the soup trio and try all three! They have gluten free breads for their sandwiches and amazing salads. A 1/2 salad and 8 oz soup was a great lunch portion.

    I was in North Carolina for the holidays and we were driving around looking for a place to eat and we found five loaves. They were very careful. I had the best pork loin sandwich there. It was so good I had to order another one! The kids menu is kind of iffy for gluten free options.

    The staff was very knowledgeable and food was good. However, we had to wait around 45 minutes for our sandwiches and when mine came it was wrong. They did quickly fix this problem and did not charge me for my meal. I am not sure what took so long for the meal to arrive, but they were very apologetic.

    Excellent! The best meal I had in Charleston--certainly for the price, but perhaps period. Lots of GF options too.

    Lots of gf options! They seem to be very knowledgeable about keeping things separate. Had a half sandwich, which was really a full-size Udi's sandwich, and a soup sampler. All three soups were great, and the chicken salad sandwich was yummy! We'll be regulars when we're in Charleston!
