Why is it that people stand in line to get into the Charleston Bakery? Most likely for two reasons: First is our strong emphasis on a cuisine that once thrived as the very center of Jewish life. The founders sought to find a middle ground for young customers more accustomed to eating at the bland chain deli operations and it's older customers yearning for culture paved over by time and endangered by assimilation, homogenization, and health food trends. The other reason for our success lies in the simple motto posted throughout the bakery's workspace... "Feed them as if it were their last meal.”
Come see the results of 14 hour workdays in our open kitchen. Mornings come enjoy handmade breakfast pastry, fresh bagels, croissants and baguettes; cream cheese spreads just as good as Zabars, and our house smoked salmon lox that melts in your mouth. A large variety of choices in our coffee bar go perfect with the abundant breakfast platters offered.
Lunch is kicked up a few notches as we prepare our own corned beef, pastrami and roast beefs. And one has to have just the perfect bread so of course we make our own Jewish rye and french baguettes. Our mojo orange cubanos alone draws a crowd for those that know authentic Cuban sandwiches. Chicken salad starts with whole roasted chickens and hand stripped because chicken is so much better when it's cooked on the bone. There are no short cuts taken here when it comes to what we feed our customers
