I reallllly try to eat at new spots as much as possible, but with Five Loaves nearby it’s an entirely different story. I’ve eaten at this cozy cafe more than anywhere else in Charleston (besides Jeni’s Ice Cream, but that’s a given). Their sandwiches are so. damn. good. My all time favorite has to be the hot ham & brie sandwich: hot ham, melted brie, green tomato jam and mustard vinegar slaw on a fresh and buttery croissant. Another favorite is the portobello goat cheese burger with spinach, tomato and sweet basil mayonnaise on top of thick cut multigrain bread. I usually go with a few people, convince everyone order different sandwiches and share between the group. It’s a great way to try multiple sandwiches without eating them all to yourself. Though that wouldn’t be too terrible….
If I’m feeling extra wild, I order the soup sampler with my sandwich. This comes with 3 different soup choices (my favorite is the creamy parmesan asparagus soup) in 3oz sample cups. It’s only 4.50 and worth every penny! Click the photos below for more info on their delicious choices.
