“Espresso coffee with chocolate chunks and almond bits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Need I say more? Really good. Friendly staff, clean, interesting flavors. On a tree lined Boulevard with shaded tables out front. Eat ice cream and watch the people go by. Near perfect.

“Not the best homemade ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Good homemade ice cream--not the best. They charged me a five percent surcharge to use my debit card.

“Nothing spectacular. Just ice cream. Good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Nothing special (and that's not necessarily a bad thing). Cute little place. No extravagant flavors. Ice cream was good.

“Excellent Ice Cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

A group of us had dinner at Pies and Pints (absolutely great pizza) across the street and stopped by here for dessert. What a great decision as this place had great tasty ice cream. It’s not cheap but it is high quality. I ordered a waffle cone with health and chocolate chip. Perfect combination.

This place is very popular so you may have to stand in line. Well worth the wait. If I ever end up back in Charleston, I will definitely return here. Recommendation - dinner and Pies and Pints and then stop off here for dessert.

“Yum-O”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

I have recently discovered the greatness of Capital Street. We had the Espresso Oreo ice cream and it was to die for. Not too chunky with a great espresso flavor. We will be back again!
