Healthy Eats and Treats

Looking for a quick, healthy bite to eat while in #CWV? We’ve got you covered! You can find salads and burger substitutes at many of our local spots…but if you are looking for something new and exciting, here’s a few of our favorites to try.

Coco’s – 223 Hale Street 

Off the beaten path in the heart of downtown Charleston, , Coco’s is a unique breakfast and lunch spot worthy of being on your foodie list. The restaurant’s bold art, retro décor, and intimate seating create a unique vibe that draws people into the establishment.

The menu is filled with healthy food made from nourishing, delicious seasonal ingredients.

A few fan favorites are Kanawha Cobb, Coco’s Bahn Mi, and any of the Coco’s bowls.

Café Appalachia – 110 McFarland Street

One of Charleston’s newest restaurants offers farm-to-table foods grown on-site and locally sourced. Enjoy unique dishes such as bagel with trout spread, the Local Burger, quinoa Burger Sliders, or Upgraded Salad.

In addition to the delicious food, Café Appalachia gives back to the community by employing women who are in the ReIntegr8 program. This program’s mission is to restore women to their families, friendships, and society at large after battling addiction.

The Shape Shop Café – 706 Central Ave

No healthy eats discussion is complete without the Shape Shop Café, Charleston’s original health food restaurant. They have been serving “smart eats & treats” to the community since the 1970s. The food is made from scratch daily onsite at the Central Avenue location, and you can find their food truck around town, especially during events.

While they are open for breakfast, their best dishes are served at lunch. From wraps and paninis to salads and homemade soups, they have something for everyone’s taste buds. No meal is complete without a sweet treat! We highly recommend the Dippy Do’s, a sweet, rich ice cream dipped in a chocolate coating on a stick without the guilt. They come in a multitude of flavors, including vanilla, chocolate, and butter pecan.
