Charming place in a fun part of Charleston. Stopped by the shop twice in five days. If you like a great cupcake and other bake goods.. Check this place out.

Wonderful baked items. Love those cookies and the pecan tarts. A little off the beaten path but worth the extra steps. Enjoy

Very cute little shop, off the beaten path of King Street, but worth the walk. There is street parking out front but you'll want to walk to help walk off the calories! Loved the pecan tart, the Lady Baltimore cupcake, and the peanut butter cookies. I heard others raving about the brownies. Nice story behind the shop. Definitely check it... More

We stopped in after reading Tripadvisor reviews. So glad we did. We picked out 6 cupcakes and they were all so heavenly. Wish we would have bought more. We will go back. I'm just glad we live an hour from Charleston or I could get in serious trouble at Sugar.

Please go here. There cupcakes and sweets are waaaay better then the Charleston Cupcake place around the corner. Sugar is really fresh and clean tasting. Doesn't taste like fake flavoring like most places use.

Maybe it was an off day. I was looking for some Christmas theme cookies and found some plus a couple of cupcakes. First the cupcakes were dry, which I know can happen with small cakes. The cookies looked good but were just so-so. There were many other cookies to choose from and I might go back to try some and... More

On our first morning in Charleston we visited sugar to pick up a Charleston Gingerbread kit, to assemble during our Christmas visit. We were greeted by the most friendly staff I have ever experienced during the holiday rush. That day we not only purchased the kit, but many different flavored cupcakes, fresh cookies, and even a few souvenirs as well.... More

NIce looking as well as tasty goodies. Try the coconut cupcakes to start. Staff friendly and fun. While just a small place, they have a good selection---hard to just try one.
