Dessert refuses to be an afterthought at Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Cafe. More than 30 ice-cream flavors?repeatedly lauded by the Charleston City Paper and Moultrie News?pile atop cones or blend into milk shakes, and classic banana splits make mouths water with their pecans and cherries. The caf??s scoops of amaretto cherry or java chunk are generous, living up to the vision of Rod Lapin, who opened the first Ye Ole Fashioned in 1972 with the idea of making customers? jaws drop at the size of his portions. Today, at more than half a dozen locations, including one helmed by his daughter Becki and her husband and Summerville locations owned by Todd Lapin, that hasn?t changed. Ten strips of bacon layer the caf??s signature BLTs; chili-laden, all-beef hot dogs weigh down their buns; and the plates are required to start lifting weights regularly before they?re allowed to carry double-decker sandwiches or burgers.

A warm, passionate band of locals staffs the comfy communal environs at both Muddy Waters Coffee Bar locations, each dedicated to serving tasty, Counter Culture Coffee-approved fair-trade coffees. A host of flavorful, creative bean-bound beverages adorns the menu like so many gilded ribbons on a break-dancer's pantaloons. Swathe a chilly tongue in a hot coverlet of hand-quilted espressos such as the latte ($2.80–$3.65) or muddy mocha ($3.35–$4.20), or impress an island hotelier with all-inclusive blended drinks such as the caramel frappe ($4.20¬–$4.60). The coffee bar's iced coffee ($2.25–$2.60) pairs well with its myriad pastries, which arrive from local vendors like Sticky Bakery, Nicole's Nutty Goodness, and Grawnola. A cozy, welcoming environment fills both locations, underscored by uncannily warm, helpful baristas and frequent, community-focused in-house events.
