We had a lovely dinner downtown but wanted a little something sweet to finish off the evening. We stopped in and grabbed a few of the cupcakes for a delicious dessert. My daughter commented that it was the best buttercream icing she had ever had. That's a huge compliment as she has had a lot of cupcakes. Don't miss this sweet treat!

This is the cutest little cupcake shop in Charleston! They have some standard cupcakes available at all times as well a rotating cupcake schedule with new or seasonal flavors. And when you check out, there are always samples ;) Definitely worth checking out!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us! I'm so glad you enjoyed the Southern Red Velvet and your experience, and love hearing that you liked the look of the store itself. Red Velvet is our bestselling cupcake - so many people like it, we even made Southern Red Velvet coffee - so you're in very good company. Come see us again!

My family of four (adults) stopped by Cupcake DownSouth to pick up snacks for the end of a day of touring.

The staff was friendly and helpful in making selections. There was a wide variety of choices, and they all looked good. We settled on a selection of six, and enjoyed them that night.

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.
