As a resident of Percy street, I can fully confirm that besides the parking, Cannonborough/Elliotborough is the best neighborhood in Charleston. I present my argument below.
1. Sugar Bakeshop and Wildlfour Pastry
Sugar has very affordable cupcakes and cookies while Wildflour has FAMOUS sticky buns on Sundays and some sweet and savory scones and other goodies. Located on Cannon and Spring. Hidden gems of Elliotborough.
The best pizza in Charleston?? Located on Bogard?????? Charleston, you shouldn't have!
3. Elliotborough MiniBar
Located on home, sweet home, Percy Street. I have to admit I haven't had a drink there but on Valentines Day Holy City Waffles was selling waffles on a stick.
A soup and a sammy all on Cannon Street!!
I've said it a million times before and I'll say it again. Go to FUEL.
6. Veggie Bin
You cannot deny that they have the best produce in Charleston, it is also affordable!!! Support local businesses people!!!
7. The Eclectic Cafe
The Eclectic is a cafe that sells records. Everything you need in one place. Sadly, they are closing in two weeks. #RIP
