Do know that it may require a short venture off the beaten tourist path to find Charleston's budget-friendly restaurants. Start your day with a short stroll down Spring Street to Sunrise Bistro Xpress for a breakfast burrito and grits, or stick close to middle King Street with a crepes brunch at Breizch Pan. Enjoy the deeper exploration into Charleston's city neighborhoods by reserving a dinner for two at Five Loaves on Coming Street, or visiting Pane e Vino on Warren Street for authentic Italian dishes, (most are priced under $20)!
