When you are out and about town and hunting ONE thing... dessert. Well this is the place to wind-up. Selections are plentiful and portions are meal-worthy. Plan on hitting the gym for extra cardio to burn off the calories!

My boyfriend and I traveled to Charleston for our anniversary and dropped in for a late night dessert. He got the pecan pie and I had a decadent slice of chocolate cake. They were very, very busy for it being late, after 10pm, but since we were ordering to-go, they let us slip in. The service was excellent, fast, and well worth the trek. Our dessert were also amazing!

Kaminsky's reminded me of why I don't ever order cake at a restaurant. Dry, and no taste. Nice atmosphere, and really good service. VERY mediocre desserts. Coffee was weak.

Good selection and variety of homemade desserts which change daily. Pumpkin cheesecake was delicious and our server we made a good selection because it was apparently National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day.

Kaminsky's is the ultimate place to go for good dessert. There is a dessert case where you can see all of the various desserts to choose from. It has a cafe atmosphere with dark lighting to set the mood, and it's small enough that it gives off a cozy vibe. The service was alright, but the dessert was rich and delicious, worth the cost. Personally, I recommend getting the butterfinger pie.
