Charleston (a week with group with vegetarian friendly options)

Two years ago I posted a similar post. Needing an update.

We will be there for a week over New Years and I would love a few suggestions.

Repeats on our list include Basil's and Mustard Seed. This time I will make reservations for SNOB in time for New Years.

Can you suggest any other casual early dining places for a group of bridge players that need to return to a bridge tournament at the North Charleston Convention Center by 7:30 pm?

  1. I would recommend Daily Dose in James Island, just off Folly Rd. They have lots of great vegetarian options. It is mainly wraps and pitas and the like, but quality ingredients and very tasty too. They also have a good beer list.

    Three Little Birds Cafe on James Island (behind the South Windemere shopping center) only does breakfast and lunch, but they've earned a lot of praise for their organic options and have lots of vegetarian items.

    Hope this helps!

    1. Definitely make reservations at SNOB, you won't be disappointed. I would also recommend Cru Cafe, but from what I remember they seem to have more vegetarian options at lunch...make a reservation for either.

      If you are looking for places close to the convention center, I would go to either Sesame or EVO Pizza. Both are about a 5 minute drive away, and both have veggie friendly items. Sesame has the option of ordering any burger as a black bean burger, and they make everything themselves down to the ketchup, buns and pickles. EVO is wood fired pizza, they have personal sizes, and specials featuring local ingredients. Don't miss the pistachio pesto pizza. I would definitely call first to verify this info and when they open for dinner. Just as a side note, there is nothing worthwhile by the outlet mall and convention center.
