Best cupcakes ever!

Truly amazing CUPCAKES!!! I'm not a huge dessert person to be honest but I traveled with a friend who has a gluten allergy and loves cake so I reached out to the good folks at Sugar and they made gluten free cupcakes happen. I went for their regular cupcakes and sampled the chocolate almond... read more

Stopped in and first impressions were great for this little bakery. Set in a quaint neighborhood and older building the decor and overall feel was great. I thought we were in for some great baked goods. I always research local bakeries and candy shops and try to stop in as many as I can when visiting. I have to say... More

Stopped by and picked up half dozen cupcakes. They were pretty good. I think my favorite was the red velvet. My husband liked the carrot cake. While the cupcakes were not out of this world, they will satisfy a sweet tooth.

Went here as part of a food tour. Cute little shop and the desserts we tried were so yummy!! Worth checking out and getting dessert if you have a sweet tooth and want to walk around the cute neighborhoods.

We had these at a family gathering and honestly were underwhelmed. The "blueberry vanilla" was a vanilla cupcake with three sugared blueberries on top. I thought it would have blueberries throughout the cupcake. I would love to stop by the shop (and will do so on our next trip to Charleston) and order something other than cupcakes as all of...

Cute little bake shop the way bakeries used to be! Great selection of good ole bakery staples. Cupcakes yummy with nothing "over the top" just the way cupcakes used to be! Very reasonably price desserts. Cookies were delicious!

We stopped by Sugar after reading reviews and we are glad we did. It all was delicious. We got lemon curd cupcake: perfect mix of tart & sweet, chocolate mint cupcake: minty frosting that's smooth and cake was fluffy & light and lastly caramel cupcake: the caramel was rich & creamy almost resembled what you'd taste on a caramel apple....

Sugar has the most incredible sweets. I've never been disappointed. The cupcakes, the cookies, the pies, the tarts are all excellent. This bakery should be award winning. The place is really quaint too and staff super friendly and welcoming. If visiting Charleston, don't forget to stop and indulge.

Some of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! They have great iced coffee & cupcakes too. We always get a batch of cupcakes for our coworkers for a birthday or special event.
