One of the Best Sweet Shops in Charleston

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!

A little off the beaten path, but WELL worth the detour! Enjoy lunch at Five Loaves first and its a short walk to an awesome dessert Be sure to take some home for any other sweet lovers in your home/hotel room or don't even tell them you went! Noatter what you choose you can't go wrong!

Great spot near my office that has stellar iced coffee and some great sweets, although a little of the pricier side, still worth it!

Without a doubt, Sugar is my favorite bakery in Charleston. Hidden on Cannon Street, in an up-and-coming foodie neighborhood, Sugar could not be a more charming atmosphere. With a slight hint of French country mixed with vintage-looking distressed walls, Sugar is everything I would want my own bakery to be. The owners are down to earth, kind, and passionate. I... More

This cute little bakery was a delightful treat. We tried several flavors and were impressed by all! This is a great stop for an afternoon treat away from the more touristy destinations.

Cupcakes were dry, frosting was hard and the cost was $12.00 for cupcakes. Smells great in there though!
