The Gathering Cafe

Carrot Cake, The Gathering Cafe, Charleston, S.C.

I met with friends to try a new West Ashley restaurant this evening - The Gathering Cafe at Orange Grove and Sam Rittenburg. Now that I live West Ashley I am tickled to hear of tasty new places close to me with great food and plenty of parking. Thanks to my friends Kathy and Leah for the suggestion. From top to bottom although not in that order, we enjoyed the carrot cake, meatloaf, salmon, pork loin (mine) and a visit from chef/owner Nathan Conkle.

I notice that their web site offers printable coupons for a free dessert and glass of wine until 12/15. Go for it!
The Gathering Cafe in West Ashley is a casual, family owned and operated cafe-restaurant offering satisfying food choices to the community of Charleston. We strive to offer the freshest ingredients, and we strongly support the use of organic and local food sources.
Owner, chef and South Carolina native, Nathan Conkle, brings over fifteen years experience to the tables of this new cafe. The Gathering strives to create an atmosphere of comfort where  both individuals and families can gather and feel welcome. The Gathering also offers tasty, take-away choices for those on the move. Please join us in celebrating life's nourishing food!
