We went here for Sunday brunch because there are so many positive reviews, but I failed to notice that most of the reviews were about soups, sandwiches, and other non-breakfast food. I was not very impressed with breakfast. They do have items marked as gluten free on their menu, but not a lot of breakfast options. I decided to go very basic and get scrambled eggs, bacon, and home fries. Most of my food was cold when I received it even though it came out fairly soon after we ordered. I really disliked the home fries especially. They are made with onions and peppers and covered in a reddish seasoning but still had almost no flavor. I am a potato lover and for me not to finish them really says something. I’ve had better breakfasts at Cracker Barrel (pre-diagnosis). On the plus side, I did not get sick and our server was understanding when I explained the gluten situation. The best thing I had, honestly, was the coffee. I have to give this place 2 stars because the breakfast food just wasn’t worth it. However, based on the other reviews I have read, I think I would try it again in the future, but just be sure to go around lunch time.
I loved this place so much, we went back the next day!! They have a soup sampler, which is the greatest because I wanted to try ALL THE SOUPS. and they were all worth it. Their salads are amazing as well. They're super cute and friendly :) The menu was labeled with GF, vegetarian, and vegan options
On our first trip to Charleston, only a month after I found out I was Celiac, we we're lucky enough to stay next to Five Loaves Cafe. Thank goodness! We went in there several times and not only was the staff friendly and knowledgeable but the food was fantastic. I highly recommend.
Great food and service! I had the roasted turkey sandwich with the Udi's sandwich bread. I'm not a big fan of their sandwich bread so I only gave 4 stars instead of five. A freshly made gf bun or bread would have been better. But I highly recommend their gluten free raspberry almond short bread! Amazing!
We went to both Charleston Five Loaves with 2 GF people, 1 of whom is also allergic to tree nuts & dairy & both places had great service, ideas and options. Wonderful fresh food & attentive kitchen & lots of GF sandwich & soup options! Plus they give you a "double sandwich" since Udi's bread is so small!! Half sandwiches available-LOVED It!
Our server, Steven, was very knowledgable and so helpful! He showed us which soups were GF and helped us order accordingly. Very friendly and gave us some tourist spots to see. He made this a carefree dining experience for all of us. The sandwiches were amazing and such a great value for your money. We were full and had to take our left-overs with us.
Went there twice. The prices were super reasonable. All of their soups were GF. They've got real GF bread for the sandwiches (I think it might be udi's white bread). We had a group of 21 people and only 1/3 of us were gluten intolerant. The restaurant got All of us right and for really inexpensive. Quite impressive. :-)
