Best cupcakes ever!

Read the reviews and wanted to give it a try. Not disappointed! The best cupcakes ever. Off the beaten path, but easy to find.

We were introduced to Sugar Bakeshop after attending a King Street culinary tour--after visiting Sugar on our tour, we made it a priority to return on our visit to Charleston. They present their treats beautifully and simply. I fell in love with the grapefruit cupcake and my fiancé got a delicious, refreshing popsicle. After a busy day of biking and... More

Having seen Sugar Bakery featured on The Cooking Channel, I wanted to stop here while in Charleston. We tried the mini and regular sized cupcakes. The proportion of frosting to cake on the regular sized cupcakes was not enough. The regular sized cupcakes were not moist and fluffy. They were rather small for the price. The lime sugar cookie was... More

This is a tiny little shop but has wonderful cupcakes and cookies. My chocolate cupcake with white buttercream icing and coconut was fresh and absolutely delicious. We took our cupcakes out to the side yard and sat in the lovely sunny weather enjoying our afternoon treat

Delicious cupcakes! Moist, fresh, fun flavor combinations. Staff was super friendly and helpful. I don't generally like cupcakes from shops (like GiGis) because I am a homemade cupcake snob , but these were amazing. We stopped in again on our way out of town to take some home to family, but not all of them made it home!

This bakery is in a nondescript storefront...nothing bold, bright or hugely outstanding about it.. just a nice simple place. There was a very nice middle aged man in the store who thanked us for coming and hoped we would enjoy the cupcakes.. was glad he was nice because the girl who helped us, rang us up, etc. was not especially...

Great tasting cupcakes but small for the price. Lacking in customer service. Not very helpful and seemed to be in a hurry. Lemon curd cupcake was my favorite. Also had the strawberry and the almond with raspberry filling. Smelled great in the shop and the outside of the shop is very cute!

I live in the Charleston area and LOVE this bakeshop! Their specialty is cupcakes. I am not a cupcake person, so I indulge in their fantastic mini lemon tarts and assorted cookies. Yum!!! In the summer months they make their own frozen pops!!! They dabble in various treats and achieve gastronomical success with everything that they sell. My adult children... More
