Happy Wednesday, everyone!
We spent this past weekend in Charleston, and it was one of the most perfect weekends I’ve had in a long time! Charleston is seriously beautiful. Every street and every house is amazing. I don’t know how you can come to Charleston and not fall in love or say, “Babe, we have to move here!” I think I have told that to my husband over and over again. You must visit to say the least. Just take it in and enjoy! And make sure you go with empty bellies because you will literally eat your way through Charleston. The food is just amazing. Here are some of my favorite eateries and coffee shops.
Black Tap Coffee
We actually came here a couple of times during our stay, and their lavender latte and almond croissant are a must-try! Not to mention the Banana Nutella turn over. So so yum. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff are very friendly. Would be my local if I lived in Charleston. This coffee is literally the best I have ever tasted.
Stopped in for a quick latte here. It is gorgeous inside with marble counter tops, white tile floors and a big window with sun shining in. We tried the vanilla latte and it was amazing. If you are visiting Charleston make this place a stop!
Cafe Framboise is a little gem, tucked away on Market Street. When walking on Market Street, look for the raspberry (framboise) colored walls inside this charming little French cafe. It’s just so pretty. We had a great quick late lunch here after just arriving in Charleston. Their chicken paninis were fantastic. Their vanilla latte and pastries were amazing as well. Highly recommended.
Everyone I know raves about this place and yes it was great. My husband and I both agreed that this was the best meal we have ever had in Charleston. Poogan’s Porch serves traditional, southern food and you definitely need to try their Chicken sandwich, sweet potato fries and my absolute favorite pimento cheese fritters! I loved the ambiance too. They have a gorgeous patio and balcony seating as well.
If you are wandering downtown in Charleston near the waterfront, Belgian Gelato is in the perfect location. We both got the Vanilla gelato on a waffle cone. Portions vs. prices were decent, and the single scoop serving is very generous. Definitely worth a trip (or two!) when you’re visiting Charleston. It’s a small store front with very limited seats, but walk over to the Waterfront park and enjoy the scenery and fountains while indulging your taste buds.
If you’re looking to treat yourself with ice-cream you can’t get just anywhere then Jeni’s is the stop for you. They offer some unique flavors and a wide variety of ice creams. We sampled three of them and they were all phenomenal. I ended up choosing the wild berry lavender and sweet cream. Natural ingredients, cool store design and very friendly staff, make this a not to miss stop in Charleston.
Coming to my outfit- I love pretty much any clothing that’s blue and white… so I’m over the moon for this blue and white cold shoulder lantern sleeve top. I love the ruffle, the cold shoulders, everything about it. I paired it with white denim leggings that I got from Express and grey wedges from DSW which are absolute spring must-haves.
I will be sharing some of my favorite places to visit in Charleston in my next post. Have a great week ahead, loves!
