Ever since Park Circle Coffee n' More closed back in 2009, Park Circle locals have been without a proper coffee shop. Now, Richard Campbell is back with a new shop aptly dubbed Richard's Coffee n' More.
Located behind the now closed Aunt Bea's in the village, the small white building boasts a tree shaded patio with lots of tables and has room for four 4-tops inside. The building is owned by North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey and Campbell credits his help with making the shop a possibility.
"When I started Coffee n' More, I did with a lot of money and by myself. Now, I'm starting again on a shoestring with the help of many many friends and Summey's support. I couldn't have done it without them", said Campbell.
The kitchen is smaller than before, but he's still going to serve up a variety of deli favorites as well as breakfast fare like waffles, egg sandwiches, bagels and muffins. His former cook Gloria is back, to the delight of many regulars.
He'd like to serve Sunday brunch soon, but is just focused on the opening for now. The shop will be open Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. The official address is 1050 East Montague Suite D, but keep in mind it's off the main road.
