Kudu Coffee and Craft Beer

We've found the perfect morning AND afternoon spot! Kudu is locally owned and operated, roasting their own specialty coffee at a facility on King Street.

This Mount Pleasant home turned cafe wins the award for cutest coffee shop in the Charleston area 🏆 And the coffee is great too, making it a win-win.
