I simply couldn't resist the Bourbon Pecan Pie Cupcake. It was the perfect amount of sweetness- sweet enough for dessert, but not so sweet that I couldn't enjoy it. I didn't taste very much bourbon flavor (which was fine with me). Enjoyed the bits of pecan. Perfect little dessert at the end of our food tour!

This little shop in Charleston has the best cupcakes that I have ever tasted! On our trip, we stopped several times, and the last time we bought some of the mini cupcakes, so we would be able to try more of the different flavors. My favorite was Peanuts and Coke! These cupcakes are moist and delicious, with just the right... More

Some people say it's costly but it's so worth the price. The cupcakes are very moist but not overly sweet. I got the black and white and it was delicious. They have different flavors on different days. It's definitely worth the stop if your in charleston.

The cupcakes were big and tasty! A little pricey for my taste, but good none the less. We all walked nearly a mile to get there for these cupcakes. I felt they were worth it. Nice quaint little shop.

I was searching and searching for vegan or eggless cupcakes and came across this cute little shop on king street. I ordered chocolate eggless muffin and could not get cream as they do eggless cream only on specific days. But the taste was amazing and the cupcakes very soft and fluffy. Do visit once and indulge your sweet tooth.
