Majestic live oak trees with sprawling branches dripping silver Spanish moss surrounding stately white-columned mansions. The dazzling Ashley and Cooper Rivers meandering their ways to the sea. Long-necked, lanky egrets perusing the swampy marshes where cypress knees eerily protrude from the murky water. Alluring gardens with fragrant flowers bursting forth no matter the season. When you envision Charleston South Carolina, is this what you see?
Sprinkled along this museum mile are many galleries, cafes, and beautiful historic churches to satisfy the interests of any age.
Charleston, South Carolina is a food town. Good old southern cooking is available, but so is fresh farm to table cuisine. Located at 18 Pinckney Street in the historic district is a charming old house off the beaten path with culinary magic happening inside.
Dixie Supply Bakery & Cafe has etched itself into my heart with one single taste of their creamy grits, cooked to perfection, without any pretention. When facing the multitude of options in the culinary capital of the South you may be tempted to overlook a humble storefront bakery cafe sharing parking lot space with a gas station.
