The Gourmet Shop stands out along the streets of Five Points with its vibrant red awnings, and once inside you’re greeted with freshly made pastries, a wide selection of wine and the Best Breakfast/Brunch spot in Columbia!

I have made it a personal tradition to start my first day of classes each semester with a croissant from The Gourmet Shop – the spinach feta croissant is my all-time favorite. Their brunch and lunch menu are also filled with delicious items including waffles, salads, breakfast sandwiches and charcuterie boards. The Gourmet Shop is one of the only places in Columbia where you can customize a charcuterie board with mouthwatering cheeses and a variety of meat.

The Gourmet Shop has an outstanding menu and a beautiful storefront that makes it clear why it was voted the best breakfast and brunch spot in Columbia!
