Charleston Eats: Queen Street Grocery

Imagine a cute little corner store, selling a fantastic array of local products, produce, and beer, and also cooking up sweet and savory comfort food; this is Queen Street Grocery.  Just north of one of my favorite Charleston strolls, off the beaten path, in a cute residential area, Queen Street Grocery is super laid back and not too touristy.
They offer breakfast all day (omelettes, smoothies, sandwiches) and everything is fresh and made to order.  Charleston is definitely known for its comfort food, and what I love about Queen Street is that anything you order tastes just as comforting as any other Lowcountry favorite, but you can feel good about what's going in your body.  Everything is so fresh and light: salads, crêpes, and hot-pressed sandwiches.  My favorites are definitely the Murray crêpe (turkey, brie, green apple, spinach, basil pesto, and sriracha), Hail Caesar salad, and don't forget a sweet banana, brown butter, and brown sugar (the Johns Island) crêpe for dessert! 
While you wait or after you eat, don't forget to head to the back for "Groceries and Specialty Beers."  They also have an array of wine and non-alcoholic beverages to bring home.  
Now I'm dreaming of sitting outside at Queen Street for lunch - yum!

Sounds like an awesome spot! Will keep it in mind as I'm really hoping to make it to Charleston this year for a ladies trip! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
