“Excellent”
Reviewed May 29, 2008

Visited Charleston in April 2008 and discovered this bake shop. It is excellent. The owners are transplanted northerners who, like so many, fell in love witjh the charm of Charleston and opened up this place which now adds to that charm even more. They are located a little off the beaten path, but still within easy distance of the historic and touirst district (especailly if you are near the visitor center, and if you are on King, keep walking past Calhoun until you get to Cannon, then make a left for a few blocks), and are a neighborhood establishment as well. The espresso cup cakes were superb. The owner/baker was very enjoable to talk with. A very nice find.

“Awesome cookies and cupcakes!”
Reviewed March 15, 2008

This place is located on Cannon, between the Not So Hostel and King Street. It has great cookies, cupcakes and tarts. The cakes and the logo/marketing seem deliberately minimalist and well-done. Very retro. The kitchen and the baked goods remind you of Mom! The owners are extremely friendly too!

“The cutest lil Bakery shop in Charleston!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2008

This is my new favorite bake shop. Sugar owners Bill Bowick and partner David Bouffard moved down from New York City a couple years ago transforming it into the cutest little bakery you've ever seen. Bill, the baker of the two, says his specialties are cookies, cupcakes, and tarts. The Lady Baltimore cupcake, IS TO DIE FOR!!! also the Red Velvet, yummy.

They're open Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Feel free to bring the pooch, they've got dog biscuits too
