Found this placed based upon a recommendation from a server at a BBQ place we are lunch. It's around the corner off king street. Kind of a hole in the wall. Coffee was local and good. I had an Italian cappuccino and my husband had...More

What's to tell? Great coffee, great craft beers. Kudu is celebrating its sixth anniversary this week. Eclectic crowd--students, professionals, retired professors, and so forth. The outdoor courtyard is charming. Highly recommend--better than "The Dripolator" in Black Mountain, NC.

This is obstensively a coffee shop and brew house. I have been here before and enjoyed coffee but this time went with an individual who wanted tea . . . amazingly this could not be accommodated. That seemed pretty weak to me.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Their medium latte is made with 3 shots of espresso (which I feel is the appropriate amount) and was very good. Small tables, and bars at the counter and window were available for seating. Great little coffee stop.

Kudu is a great place to spend some time having a nice cup of coffee on a cold winter day. Staff are friendly, the coffee is good and the environment very welcoming. Been there twice on this trip for coffee and might go once more.

Came here while exploring Charleston! Hidden gem. All weekend we'd been looking for a low key place to get some local beer. Stumbled upon Kudu and were pleasantly surprised. Craft beer and coffee - yum. Had two delicious pints while waiting for dinner time. Definition...More
