A Guide to Eating Your Way Through Freshfields Village

9am: Caffeine fix.

The name says it all. Stop by Java Java for a light bite and some coffee. Serving King Bean, a coffee roaster based out of Charleston, SC, Java Java offers a wide variety of coffee and espresso beverages, teas and smoothies to start your day. Insider’s tip: if the weather is nice, take your java to-go and people watch from a park benches with a froggy friend.

Noon: Fiesta Lunch.

New to Freshfields Village is Cantina 76, an independently owned Mexican-inspired taqueria and bar. Try a menu-favorite for lunch – the Peruvian shrimp taco. Cantina 76 makes all of their salsa in-house, perfect for dipping chips or adding to your taco. If you’re so inclined, try the Cantina Margarita, sweetened with natural agave nectar, to wash it all down.

3pm. Perfect Pairing:

FortyEight – A Wine Bar is the perfect spot for an afternoon with friends or browsing to discover your next wine to wow. With 48 wines on tap to choose from, you are able to pour a taste (1 oz.), a half glass (2.5 oz.), or a full glass (5 oz.). Put together your own wine tasting and pair it with cheese and charcuterie for a leisurely afternoon snack.

6pm: Roll with It.

Charleston’s sushi spot, Fuji Sushi Bar and Grill, brings sushi rolls and Japanese hibachi to Freshfields Village. There are so many sushi rolls to choose from. Not in the mood for sushi? Fuji has hibachi and noodles as well. Insider’s tip: if you like surprises, order one of the sushi platters and let the chef choose your sushi selection.

8pm: Something Sweet.

It’s always nice to end the day with two good friends: Ben & Jerry. New to Freshfields Village this year, Ben & Jerry’s scoops up euphoric ice cream made with premium ingredients, sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
