Our Story

We started Owlbear Cafe out of a passion for three things: good drinks, great food, and playing board games with our friends. But it has always been a struggle for us to find a place to do all three.

The Charleston area has no shortage of amazing food, and so many great breweries and coffee shops, but the atmosphere was never quite right for a great game with friends. So back in 2019, we set out to be Charleston’s first gaming cafe! Along the way, we discovered that we could be not only a gathering place for the local gamers but a hangout for anyone looking for a good meal or a great brew.
