This was on our bucket list of places to visit and sweet treats to eat when coming to Charleston and boy are we happy we did!! We sampled a little bit of everything - cupcakes, cookies and iced tea. The cupcakes were delicious - moist, flavorful cakes with perfectly sweet frosting in unique and original flavors (we tried the lemon... More

This is my favorite place for cupcakes when visiting Charleston. It is off the beaten track a bit but certainly worth the walk. It is also right down the street from one of my favorite lunch spots, 5 Loaves.

We went there for the cookies but it was the cupcakes that stood out. They were delicious and the employees were very pleasant and helpful. I did, however, expect that the cookies were the items that brought customers into the shop, but that was not the case this particular day, they were a bit hard and dry.

I LOVE, love, LoVe this Bake shop! The owners are so friendly, the decor is farm rustic, salvage and of course the treats are to die for! I can't tell you how often I've recommended 'Sugar' to friends or even complete strangers when they say their headed to Charleston!

I purchased a box of the cupcakes pictured for my son's classmates (had one myself!) They were delicious. Nice people that helped me.

Well, we are addicted to Lady Baltimore cake and cupcakes to start. The other cupcake flavors are lovely as well. Every cookie flavor is a delight. This is an absolute do. We typically order ahead for special items.

I called in an order from out of state to pick up while in town for my daughters graduation. The gentleman on the phone was great. I wanted two dozen cupcakes, and he suggested a variety. I thought that was a great idea. The order was waiting for me when I arrived. 12 different flavors of cupcakes. Each one fresh... More

This is our third time here. Each time I think it gets better. The cupcakes are $3 each, and they are not large sized, but in my opinion, the quality and taste is so worth it. I had the almond with raspberry filling and its out of this world. The ginger molasses cookies are insanely good. I've seen more people... More

Sugar is a must when downtown. A super cute shop and devilishly delicious treats. The chocolate cupcake with honey icing is the best! They have something for everyone with an old southern feel that is delightful!

We happened past the Bakeshop after eating at Hominy. So glad we did. Wonderful shop with gifts, as well as goodies. Purchased two cupcakes, and three cookies. Right now I wish I could have one!! The cupcakes are gorgeous, with sugar crystalized fruit (blueberries) on top, then 1/3 of an inch of the creamiest frosting, and then the cake-incredible. It... More
