In the past ten years, Cannonborough and Elliottborough have experienced significant gentrification. Old homes have been spruced up and new homes have been built, though there are still many handyman specials available for those with a keen eye. Homes here range from $300,000 for a fixer upper to $800,000 for a large renovated home, or $1,500,000 and up for a legally permitted short-term rental on Spring or Cannon. Newer construction homes in the Morris Square and Midtown developments start at around $500,000. Bogard Street is popular with college students and a fantastic restaurant opened there in 2008 – Trattoria Lucca. There are also multiple great community gardens tucked in among these streets. The heart of this area, Spring Street and Cannon Street, is considered “Midtown” and numerous stores and restaurants line the blocks. Fuel and Goulette are on the west end, and places like The Grocery are on the east.

Fantastic Spanish food with tapas, tons of parking, great outdoor courtyard…what more could you want Downtown? How about jazz night every Thursday with an incredibly talented band. DO NOT miss it. Line & King.
Here you’ll find my little guilty pleasure (actually I feel no guilt) – the three-bite donut muffin. I can’t resist! They also have great coffee, a beautiful little courtyard, and a line out the door for their Sticky Bun Sundays. Spring & Percy.
Tucked in off the main drag is a tiny gem of a Charleston single house serving great wines and food with a mediterranean flair. Check Facebook for its daily changing menu of two apps, two entrees, and two desserts. Payne Court.
