In the words of a former Gourmet magazine writer, the restaurant is "...up by the College of Charleston, near the 18th-century campus on George St. and not far from Marion Square, which is home to the burgeoning Saturday farmer's market, a bellwether of epicurean interest has opened up in the form of Caviar & Bananas. A bit like a mini Dean & Deluca, its a cafe and specialty foods shop that sells everything from sea salts and soft cheese to prepared things such as ossobuco..." This upscale specialty food destination has brought a metropolitan shopping experience to downtown Charleston, offering a diverse selection of gourmet prepared and made-to-order epicurean edibles, including sandwiches, salads, sushi, artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, boutique wines, an espresso and tea bar, gourmet packaged products and more. Caviar & Bananas uses only the freshest ingredients sourced locally and from around the globe, and is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and a cheese board, a full dinner with the family or a simple breakfast and a cup of coffee. The Caviar & Bananas experience is filled with a love of best-of-breed products, sourced locally and from around the globe. Our gourmet market and café is designed to indulge and gratify the five senses with all things gourmet. Bring an appetite. Bring a friend. Bon appetite.
