Baker's Half Dozen

Baker Roofing Company is proud to be a part of the Charleston community, and we are excited to share with you our favorite local restaurants, family-friendly activities, and coffee shops! Check them out, below.
  1. Poogan’s Porch – We wanted to share a little history of Poogan’s Porch with you all, as it is a staple in Charleston! We pulled some information from their website, “From the moment you step into the parlor of Poogan’s Porch, there is a pervasive sense of history: the knotted heart-of-pine floors, the dual staircases, and of course, the first and second story porches all reflect the Charleston of days gone by. Poogan’s Porch was originally a spacious, commodious home, erected in 1891. Poogan became the guardian of the fledgling restaurant. From his perch on the front porch, he presided over the renovation process, and when we opened our doors for business, he greeted our first guests warmly.” They aren’t kidding! The atmosphere is unlike other restaurants and even better, you can’t order wrong! The food is outstanding. From the She Crab Soup to the Shrimp and Grits, everything is yummy! Next time you’re down south, make sure you stop by for a visit – and don’t forget to make a reservation!

  2. Rise Coffee Bar – Rise Coffee is located inside Restoration Hotel and is a perfectly “Instagram-able” coffee shop! Swing in for a tasty scone and an oat milk latte. Since the shop is downtown, we recommend taking your coffee to go and exploring some of Charleston’s enchanting city streets.

  3. Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit – This delicious spot was inspired by Callie’s Charleston Biscuits and allows customers the chance to pop in and quickly grab a biscuit. The shop serves Callie’s award-winning biscuits, pimento cheese sandwiches, slow-cooked grits, and French press coffee. Are you drooling yet?! The marketing team loves Callie’s and makes it a pit stop on any trip to Charleston!

  4. Cooper River Bridge Run  – The Cooper River Bridge Run takes place on the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in the spring. The race itself is a 10k, but for those who may prefer a slower pace, there is also a Walk/Run Category and a separate Kid’s Race in Hampton Park. The view from the bridge will make all the hard work worth it!

  5. Polar Plunge – Although this amazing event is still a few months away, we think you should go ahead and put it on your calendar. The Polar Bear Plunge takes place at The Windjammer in Isle of Palms, and all proceeds go to supporting the Special Olympics. The water will definitely be chilly in February, but grab a few friends and take on the challenge as a team! There is also a Plunge Party with food and drinks to help warm everyone up after their plunge!

  6. Miller’s All Day – This place doesn’t take reservations, so plan ahead, but it’s a must stop for breakfast. You can’t order wrong! From all different types of coffee to full breakfast spreads, the food is amazing! Don’t forget to order their massive, warm cinnamon roll. The restaurant is beautiful and in a remodeled from its’ original state in the heart of downtown near King Street like an old school diner.
