We visited this bakery as part of a road trip to sample bakeries in the southeast. We got there just before they closed for the evening, but there was still plenty of treats to choose from. We tried the lemon blueberry cupcake (YUM!) and a double chocolate chip cookie - also good. Would like to try some of their other... More

My daughter and I were in Charleston close to my birthday so we drove to the bakeshop. We were not disappointed. unique flavors. Liked the pistachio, blueberry, coconut, chocolate, lemon. Each was different, beautifully decorated. Simple box with their logo in green and white. We ate in their little courtyard. It was somewhat awkward as there are no tables but... More

We loved Sugar Bakeshop!! We got three different cupcakes and all were amazing!! This place is so cute and the girls that work there were very sweet. There isn't anywhere to sit except for some benches outside, which is where we sat to eat ours. Highly recommend if you are in this area. It's kind of a walk if you... More

Our family is visiting from out of state and happened to stumble upon this adorable bakery. The cupcakes are some of the best we've ever had! They're incredibly moist without being dense and soggy and have the perfect amount of frosting. Each day they have a special and we happened to be there on a Thursday- Lady Baltimore day- and...

Yum! My twin sister & I ordered a 6-inch caramel cake for our birthday. The cooked caramel icing was perfect. This shop is so small that 6-8 people inside is very crowded I went in just to pick up the cake, but there was a line. Cute outdoor patio looked like a cute place to enjoy the baked goods.

Visited Charleston two years ago and when I came back this week I had to stop there again. Their cupcakes are moist and yummy and they have really great flavors. So if you want a little gem of a sweets shop, this is it. They also sell cookies and other treats so if you have a sweet tooth come check... More

Desert stop on a food tour of Charleston. Two truly excellent offerings. A cop cake and a nut bar that was so good I was very tempted to buy some more but had already eaten way too much.
