    My whole family is vegetarian, and it seems like a majority of the better restaurants in Charleston, the only option was to order sides, which didn't sound appealing.
    Five Loaves was great for lunch
    Outside of southern style, Basil Thai is great if you like Thai food, plenty of vegetarian options.

      Any of the good places in Charleston will acomodate vegan-vegetarian needs. I have a vegan friend, and when we go out, she explains it to the server and the chef fixes her a special plate. The less upscale places often use meat or dairy in their prep of the sides. You have to ask.

      The ONLY truly vegan restaurant in Charleston is LE Juice on Savannah Hwy in West Ashley, approx 10 minutes from downtown Charleston. They serve really really really good salads, hot soups, smoothies, juices, killer desserts - choc mousse, pies, etc. All the food is organic, kosher and extremely healthy. I love this place and recommend it to everyone! It's down the street from Gene's Hoffbrau on Savannah Hwy - entrance is on Daniel Street. The website is here: http://www.lotusestleene.com/le-juice/

        The Daily Dose is a pretty cool vegetarian spot on James Island worth checking out

          Loaves & Fishes is more vegetarian sandwiches and salads but it's great,, and cheap.

                ummmm I feel really dumb. It's called Five Loaves Cafe, not Loaves & Fishes. The one I went to is on Cannon St near downtown and CofC - here's their website: www.fiveloavescafe.com
                It has their location.

                The only upscale one is SNOBs. All the others are totally casual. But, Aluette's is pricey.
