Erik and I met up with several of our friends at Five Loaves. It was so nice to catch up with everyone. I think living in the Upstate is going to make staying in touch with high school and college friends much easier!
They have a wonderful variety of soups, appetizers, sandwiches, salads with homemade dressings, entrees, and pastas!! And everything is BEYOND affordable! You can choose any two from their soup, salad, and sandwich menus for $7.50!
The soup selection changes daily. When we were there they had about 8 different varieties. I wanted the Mexican Chili with lime but decided to go with a salad instead. Last time we were there I had an amazing Tomato Basil soup!
They have SOOO many awesome salads. I always have a hard time deciding which one to go with. This time I tried the Tomato, mozzarella, roasted sweet peppers, asparagus and baby greens salad. YUM! And Erik had the spinach salad with grilled polenta "croutons," fresh mozzarella, pearl onions and toasted almonds. Delightful! They have a list of different homemade salad dressings. I have had the Balsamic and roasted garlic, Sweet basil and honey, and Wild mushroom and soy. All were fabulous.
I love their sandwiches too. So far I have tried the Tuna salad sandwich with red grapes, aged cheddar and tomatoes, the marinated chicken breast sandwich with fresh mozzarella, raspberry vinegar marinated tomatoes and a basil pesto sauce, and the Turkey reuben with homemade thousand island, sauerkraut, and melted provolone on rye. All were great!
Throughout the restaurant they have gorgeous local art. The paintings are very affordable and are all originals. I fell in love with the one below of Shem Creek. So we got it for our new living room!
If you happen to be in Charleston on a Tuesday or Friday night, make sure you hit up Five Loaves because you receive half off bottles of wine!! You can't beat that. Check out their website HERE!
