Hours: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner
We’ve often thought the owners of Caviar & Bananas just might be the smartest proprietors in Charleston. Located in the midst of 10,500 hungry undergrads on George Street, the to-go gourmet shop was great from the beginning. But what’s kept C&B humming is their reliable quality. From fresh salads to sushi, pre-made mac ‘n’ cheese to specialty products like Jack Rudy Tonic, this tony market is the easy solution for a quick bite when shopping downtown, heading to a Spoleto show, or en route to class. Plus, they have Saturday and Sunday brunch, a must for any college-friendly locale. And when you have a busy work day ahead, you can pop by the restaurant as early as 8 a.m. to grab a salad and an iced latte on the go. —Kinsey Gidick Dish (Winter 2015)
This specialty grocery store also has an extensive selection of custom sandwiches, tossed-to-order salads, fresh sushi, and prepared foods. Plenty of space for dining in, plus wine, beer, and coffee.
