What a great little dessert haven in downtown Charleston. I was in town for a book festival, and discovered this little shop in one of the trips around the area. So glad I did, as the staff was great and the treats delicious. I myself recommend the spiked apple pie, and I took home a vanilla bean and red velvet for the teenagers, which were heartily approved as well. Will definitely visit again when in the area.

Got a Coconut and a chocolate cupcake to split between mom, dad and 3 kids. We like sweets, but these were super sweet! Even though we wanted to try more flavors, I'm glad we didn't buy more! Both were delicious, though, and I would totally visit on the next trip to Charleston.

I walked in 8 months pregnant and needing a good treat. I am gluten free so I didn't get my hopes up, but they had a gluten free cupcake. It looked average, but it sure over delivered. It was not only outside the box of the typical vanilla or chocolate GF option, the carrot style cake had an amazing cream cheese frosting. I wish I had gotten more. Hubby had the red velvet and said it was good.

So glad to hear this, Jen B! We have a lot of gluten-free customers and hear that the GF carrot cake is one of their favorites. Congratulations on the upcoming birth!
