Bad Wolf Coffee Cures Espresso Cravings Above the Crosstown

Now open

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

Super chef-driven cafeteria Workshop opened yesterday at 1503 King St. with Vietnamese eatery Pink Bellies, Korean-influenced Kite Noodles, and grown-up sandwich shop JD Loves Cheese. Another addition Bad Wolf Coffee was also able to unlock the doors yesterday.

Bad Wolf sits slightly off from the food stalls and serves coffee drinks, wine, pastries, and small plates from chef/owner Jonathan Ory. The light-filled shop opens each day at 7:00 a.m. and shuts down at 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and at 10:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Daily barista Jeff Turner follows the Butcher & Bee/Michael Shemtov brand up the peninsula to Bad Wolf. The shop differs from others in Charleston because it offers Four Barrel Coffee, which has a cult following in San Francisco.

Here, Eater photographer Leslie McKellar tours Bad Wolf on the cusp of its opening day. Designer Betsy Berry of B. Berry Interiors created the look of the dining room, and The Middleton Group were the architects of Workshop and Bad Wolf.
