It might be buttressed by a Lil' Cricket convenience store, but don't be fooled by the size of Dixie Supply Bakery and Cafe. It belongs to an old Charlestonian family (and by old, we mean they arrived here in 1698 or so) that seeks to honor its roots through food. It's here you'll find Lowcountry and Southern classics: shrimp and creamy stone-ground grits, fried chicken, and a mighty fine tomato pie. Daily blue-plate specials abound, including fried green tomatoes, shrimp
from nearby Wadmalaw Island, summer-squash-and-ricotta ravioli, and a steady assortment of locally plucked vegetables. If you only want a bite, the biscuits are worth grabbing to go.
