< Back to Oral History project: Charleston Stories
Angie Bellinger was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, the youngest of eight children. After moving to James Island, her mother, Ruby Lee Whaley Bellinger, opened Workmen’s Cafe. Angie eventually learned to cook from her mother and continues those same recipes, including her mother’s lima beans, as the owner of the cafe today. She serves classic meat-and-threes to many of the blue collar workers who stop by for lunch.
