Charleston Edition: The Daily Cup

The Daily CupThe Daily CupThe Daily Cup apparently recently moved downtown. It's only a few blocks from work, so it makes for a good lunch break during the day. My coworker and I braved a rainy afternoon in search of coffee and quiche.

Located at 700 Virginia St. E., The Daily Cup is a nice, modern cafe that offers sandwiches made with cuban presses and lots of specialty coffee drinks.

The Daily CupThe Daily CupI perused the case and a sandwich board that was outside before deciding on their ultimate grilled cheese sandwich and a side of spinach/ham quiche.

They pressed the sandwich, and handed me over a slice of quiche to take back to the office. The sandwiches are a pretty good size, and it was filled with four different types of cheeses, tomato and bacon. It was gooey, warm and the perfect comfort food for that gray day.

The Daily CupI was a little less impressed with the quiche - I wish it had set up a little more so the texture was a little stiffer. And it was kind of bland overall - no vibrant flavors. Just eggy with a little ham. A different flavor or more spices could amp it up.

Nice little cafe spot with a cool vibe. I could definitely see myself getting some homework done here.

They are open 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday & Tuesday; 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday & Thursday; and 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.
