"You've got to go to Jeni's," we were told by several wizened old Charleston regulars. And they were right. It's a superb ice cream parlour - no frills inside, just top, top-quality ice cream in a range of remarkable and boundary-pushing flavours, served efficiently. You...More

Best ice cream ever! The brown butter almond brittle was amazing. The gooey butter cake was also excellent. Would definitely go back!

If you need a sweet fix this place has the cure. Some of the best ice cream you’ll ever try. Unique flavors that pop. I just wish they had something with nuts when I’m in town but you can always find something worth trying.

This is probably the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Smooth and creamy, made with real ingredients. I had the salted peanut butter with chocolate flakes and it was amazing. They offer a “flight” which is unique because it’s a taster of three flavors, a...More

King Street-Charleston's main artery of restaurants, bars, and boutiques-is home to our first scoop shop in South Carolina. Located in the heart of "Upper King" (the section of King Street north of Calhoun Street) in the Cannonborough neighborhood, our shop is in great company with many renowned restaurants, including The Ordinary seafood hall and oyster bar, Indaco (the fabulous rustic Italian spot), and The Macintosh (a recent James Beard Award nominee for best new restaurant and best chef). The pedestrian-friendly area is also home to many independently-owned bars, bakeries, and shops, and you'll find our shop right between two neighbors we know you'll also want to visit during your trip to this historic and progressive coastal city: Charleston Distillery and Stars Roof Top & Grill Room.
