The Harbinger Cafe & Bakery Reviews

The most PRECIOUS place! The coffee is incredible. My latte was frothed with heaven. My For the Birds pastry could fuel me for a day. The chocolate pistachio square is what dreams are made of. The avocado toast belongs in an art museum. The donuts were too matcha magic to handle…>>see what I did there<< (not gonna lie I thought the matcha was guac at first…#basicproblems). But seriously, Harbinger (and sister cafe Harken) are two of the most special, memorable, nostalgic nooks of wonderful. It’s like all of the best things in a coffee shop combined. It’s so warm and wholesome, you step in the door and feel like you’re in a room of long time friends, the worn walls, exposed brick and beams just creak with history. Just so fantastic I can’t get over it. Do not miss this place!

Cold brew was good but I cannot tell you enough about this avocado toast!! It has inspired me at home to bust out my mortar and pestle at home and get creative with my avocado toast! I liked this avocado toast so much that I was one click away from purchasing a hat… But then I checked my bank account …. Thanks for a great visit

Adorable little cafe! Veggie friendly, yummy coffee drinks. Didn’t try any pastries but they looked great. The breakfast sandwich was HUGE and DELICIOUS! Easy place to bring a laptop to study or a friend for brunch.

Great ambience, great breakfast sandwich, good coffee.

Waited in line for less than 10 min, got a cold brew right after ordering. I ordered the Harbinger breakfast sandwich which came out fast, was great, but a little less spicy than expected. Definitely plan to visit again!
Coffee: 7/10
Sandwich: 9/10

Super cute place with lots of options to eat and drink!!! This fudge brownie thing was so gooood and so filling, I felt so bad I couldn’t finish it but it was amazing. I got a dirty chai with oat milk and it’s legit the best I’ve ever had, turmeric spice and so delish. The cafe was full but had plenty of seating to choose from. Great place!

I thought the reviews were too good to be true. We tried multiple items and every bite we had was amazing. Highly recommend. Charlestons hidden gem.

The Harbinger is one of my all-time favorite coffee shops in Charleston. Everything about this place is just adorable and so thoughtfully decorated—from the dishes and the bathrooms to the walls and the patio out back. Haven’t ever had anything less than delicious here—the “Black and Blue” Blondie is a must and, of course, a cup of coffee! Their salads and baguette sandwiches are amazing too. The sandwich and salad selections of the day are always a surprise until you get there, but they NEVER miss! I only wish there was more parking and that they were open later in the day.

For what this product is. I give it a 5 in execution and experience. Small menu but very on point. It feels like Home Cooking. The design and attention to detail in all the little things are the magic in its ambiance inside. Love it.

So good. Massive slices of the best quiche ever. Outstanding matcha iced lattes. Incredible delicious baked goods. They sold out of a sandwich on my order and more than compensated with a replacement and genuine apology. Don’t be mislead by a lack of seating in the front. There’s lots of seating in the back and a nice outdoor space beyond that. Highly recommended. Will for sure be a place I visit anytime I’m visiting Charleston.


This will become one of my favorite spots. It has gluten free bread and pastries! Lots of places to sit and work on a computer if you want. The cappuccino was really good, too.
