Morning Y'all!

I am doing something a little different over here at RosesandRainBoots.com. Today's post features all our favorite restaurants that B & I ate at while in Charleston. All photos are submitted c/o (courtesy of) the iPhone. Some people work magic on their iPhone, I am not that person so I apologize in advance for the poor quality. While on vacation, or just living my daily life, I'm working on capturing more of our experiences, so I'm excited to start it off with some of the cutest places we discovered while in Charleston. All of these places had a great atmosphere, which is partly why we picked the place, the "vibe" of a restaurant is so important to me. And they all kill it with their food or drink presentation. Sorry in advance that I wasn't able to snap a picture of everything, but here's a glimpse into a few of my fav's.

And, as always, definitely be sure to let me know what you think of today's post!


Kudu Coffee & Beer- 
Kudus was a big hit for us because I got my "Instagram worthy" coffee and B could grab a beer... since he doesn't drink coffee. I know, weird! I keep trying to convince him he needs too but so far he will only drink tea on occasion. I liked Kudu's because it was directly across from the park and had a really chill/relaxed vibe.

This super cute coffee shop was a winner in my book as it was conveniently located near our hotel. They also have a really chic interior with a marble ledge for people to sip and enjoy their coffee. However, they only serve their coffees in takeaway cups, so not as Instagram worthy as others. They also have additional seating outside with lots of greenery. This coffee shop is in my top ten because it offers specialty lattes like honey lavender.

This place was DELICIOUS. Our hotel offered complimentary pastries in the morning and I still ate my entire meal. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal and this did not disappoint. They also serve a pretty great iced cinnamon dolce latte. ( I know, I drink way too much coffee.)

82 Queen- 
B & I stopped for lunch and opted to eat outside on their back patio. They have the whole patio enclosed so it almost feels like you're in a secret garden, so cute. I added chicken and the grilled bread to my salad, splurge for the bread. It was amazing! They must have grilled it in olive oil (or something) and added sea salt, it was the perfect addition to my already delicious lunch.

Sugar Bakeshop-
I mean this is basically my love language right here. They serve pretty "Instagram worthy" treats, coffee and more. I have to admit I am not normally a cupcake person, but these are hands-down some of the MOST DELICIOUS cupcakes I have ever had. I ordered their fan-fav the vanilla with blueberry toppings and the Thursday special of the day, almond flavor. So. Good.

Magnolias is a signature restaurant in my eyes.  It's one of those places you HAVE to visit while in Charleston. It is known for its authentic southern cuisine and located just a short walk away from Rainbow Row and the Pineapple foundation. Be sure to check the times before attending to a late lunch, most restaurants stop serving between 2:30 and 4/5:00pm. We ended up stopping in for dinner after enjoying a lovely carriage ride tour. Be sure to try the fried chicken!

The Mills Hotel-
We stumbled upon the Mills Hotel (which is one of the most Instagrammed places in Charleston) and decided to pop in for a quick snack. We hoped to eat outside on their patio by the fountain, but they weren't serving outdoors because little did we know in less than 10 minutes we would be greeted with a massive downpour. While at the hotel's restaurant, we both enjoyed sweet tea and their chicken sandwich. Both were perfect for a light lunch.

Right up the road from Magnolias is Blossom, a quaint restaurant that has a lovely atmosphere and tasty food. I didn't realize until after our trip that they are actually owned by the same people as Magnolias. Think of Blossom as the more "informal" version of Magnolias, offering a variety of foods like spinach and artichoke dip and wood oven Pizzas. They also have a pretty posh brunch menu that looks amazing! I'm definitely putting it on my list for when we go back.
Swig & Swine-
On our first night in Charleston, we stopped at this place, enjoying a drink and snacks on their second-floor patio. I loved all the lights, it created a really fun atmosphere. Plus, at the time of our trip, this place was the number one recommended restaurant on Trip Advisor. We also ended up enjoying their treats in a traditional southern buffet on our dinner cruise, and it was amazing. We both had seconds!

The Pavillion- 
We opted out of eating at the Pavillion and went for drinks on the rooftop bar instead. It was a little chilly that night, but each little section had its own outdoor heater. It was such a fun way to experience and see some views, Charleston.

I hope Y'all enjoyed today's post. B & I had a lot of fun trying new places to eat and I'm excited to share it. I already have a list going for places I want to visit again and new places I want to try for our next visit. Where are your favorite places to eat in Charleston?
