If you're looking for simple Southern cuisine for breakfast or lunch, critic Deidre Schipani recommends trying relaxed restaurant Livelihood Cafe. The West Ashley establishment is the type of place to bring the whole family for chicken salad sandwiches or hearty soups on a cold day. She breaks down the various items on the menu, but all you need to know is this sentence:
Cooking from the book of Lowcountry life, owners John Sigler and his wife, Rigel Graham, deliver the culinary kith and kin of Southern foodways with a trace of contemporary conceits.
Livelihood Cafe is located at 1337 Ashley River Rd.
