The Cottage Café on Calhoun Street in historic Old Town Bluffton, South Carolina, exemplifies old world charm and Southern hospitality.
The Cottage that was built in 1868 by J.J. Carson, is known for his bravery in saving the life of General Stonewall Jackson during the Civil War battle of Chancellorsville.Carson also organized the First Baptist Church of Bluffton, and services were held at the cottage until the church building was completed. Recently, the building was moved forward and renovated to its full potential.
Today, the award winning Cottage serves fresh, scrumptious fare for breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea and dinner. The pastries, breads, pies, and cakes-especially wedding cakes-are renowned. We feature specialty teas and house-roasted May River Coffee, as well as a full bar. The Cottage Café is ideal for indoor or outdoor dining, as well as small parties and events.
