Cru Cafe
You'll get that nostalgic feeling when visiting Cru Cafe in an 18th century old historic Charleston single style home in downtown Charleston. It's just a few steps away from the City Market, tucked back near some of the horse carriage buildings. Cru Cafe was opened in 2002 by Chef John Zucker.

Famous for their four cheese macaroni and Thai seafood risotto, you'll also find fried green tomatoes, smoked salmon appetizer, shrimp BLT, General Tso's chicken, capellini shrimp pasta, fried goat cheese salad, grilled pork chops, pork schnitzel, and grilled NY strip on their menu.

The indoor area is charming, set in a vintage Charleston home, as well as outdoor front porch seating, and an additional outdoor patio area.

We see some made up list prices on homes for sale, since some sellers think they can slap any price on their home and it will sell. However, buyers aren't dumb and know when a home's price is way off and they won't even come to look at it. I tell my sellers to price their home fairly and they will likely get way over asking price anyway - you'll get more showings and more offers doing it this way!

Most of my listings this year have been selling $10k-$30k over list price on the first day! Call me to chat and for a free market analysis on your home.
