Could not believe the variety of desserts! Also, the size of them was "sinful". Definitely the best we found in all of Charleston

OMG, believe every review written on this fantastic dessert cafe. I had the coconut cake and I would eat an entire cake if no one was watching. Worth every calorie and a must stop adventure when in Charleston.

Low lit coffee shop vibe with a melting pot of customers. My wife thought it had a romantic ambiance, but maybe that was all the chocolate talking. We had the chocolate cheesecake and went back the next night for snickers cake.

Drinks and dessert instead of supper! What better way to eat while on vacation. This is a must stop at least once while visiting Charleston.
