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.

We were on vacation and we have not stopped talking about the cupcake. We were on our way to King street and happen to find their shop. The vanilla cupcake with sugared blueberries was great. Just wished we lived closer.

This small bakery tucked away on a side street in downtown Charleston is a must-stop! We have tried the vanilla, almond with apricot jam, and lemon curd cupcakes (lemon curd is my favorite). Also, the ginger cookies are amazing! I love these cupcakes because there isn't a huge amount of icing compared to the cupcake. It is a little pricey... More

We live in New Hampshire and eloped in South Carolina. Googled bakery's and chose Sugar. WOW! Best cake ever. It was ready on time,beautifully presented, the staff were super friendly and efficient and the bakery has lovely old world charm. Thanks for no worries and a tasty end to my wedding day.

Try to stop by every time I'm in town. The chocolate chip cookies are the best I have ever had. Parking is pretty hard to come by but its worth stopping for.

We stopped here based on reviews we ordered cupcakes. They were moist with fresh ingredients. Frosting was alittle too sweet for my taste. Pricing was a little over 8.00 for 2 cupcakes (standard size) and a popsicle. Fun to try if you are in the area.

My adult daughter claimed the almond joy cupcake she ordered was better than Sprinkle's - I think that is quite a compliment!! The cupcakes are smaller than Sprinkle's and about the same price. If you are looking for a sweet treat - you won't be disappointed!

In an effort to write a good review, I severely overate cupcakes! My favorite was the almond with raspberry filling. Then vanilla blueberry which had sugared fresh blueberries on top, followed closely by the vanilla. I'm a cupcake connoisseur, and I've had cupcakes all over the world. These are certainly among the best. Moist cupcakes, excellent frosting, great flavor choices.... More
