Harold’s Cabin is a reimagined corner store, cafe and restaurant concept, housed in the same building on the corner of President and Congress Streets as the original Harold’s Cabin, which served the residents of Charleston’s Westside neighborhood from the 1920s to the 1950s. First opened as a snowball shop under Harold Jacobs and his parents, and then run by Harold and his wife Lillian, Harold’s Cabin evolved into an iconic neighborhood grocery and lunch counter. Check out the mercantile area of Harold’s Cabin, featuring some of your favorite ingredients from our menu, as well as locally sourced provisions and grocery items. The space features dining room seating for 65, a lively bar, the grab-and-go market and our rooftop garden.

We asked Stephanie some questions. See what she had to say below: What do you love most about what you do? Creates a sense of community. It’s always different.
What inspired you and how did you become involved in your current career(s)? I have no idea how I became involved. Didn’t set out to be a food writer - it found me. I became inspired by other food writers.
How do you start your day? Coffee & contemplation. Just like the show Stranger Things.
Tell us about your proudest moment or accomplishment. I hope it hasn’t happened yet.
Do you have a hidden talent? Making up songs for my dog.
Who or what gives you creative inspiration? So much gives me inspiration. If I have a few days where I don’t feel inspired then I’m not paying attention to the world.
Coffee fuels our morning events. If you’re a coffee drinker, what’s your go-to order? The darkest roast, the tallest cup. Black.
What is your favorite place in Charleston? I love driving over the water every day. Being able to see water views.
How do you unwind or de-stress? My favorite thing in the world is a porch swing, so sitting on that with ear buds.
Rapid fire: morning person or night owl? Morning summer or winter? Summer mountains or beach? Beach pancakes or waffles? Waffles fiction or non-fiction? Non-fiction
