Busy at Christmas and they could not keep up with the crowd. Seated us and seemed to never return. Finally did after a LONG time, but were short on menus. Will try them when they are slow. Disappointed.

After a great lunch we were craving something sweet. We crossed the street and entered Nonnah's for dessert. Delicious delicacies were purchased. Cakes are fantastic.

The lemon cake was delicious and was a bit pricey, but the drinks were well mixed and only about $7 which beats downtown Charleston prices! The only reason we went to this restaurant was the live jazz show for $15 a person in the back...More

Fresh, delicious, well made cake for $10 a slice? But big enough to split. Overpriced. Nice place. Attentive. Best dessert.

I have eaten here twice - once for brunch and once for dessert. The brunch was pretty good, and so was the dessert. The dinner menu isn't my kind of thing, so I prefer to go elsewhere at night unless I just want a piece...More

Yes you can purchase a whole cake. They ask for 24 hours advance notice for special orders. Usually they serve by the slice. They are an award winning dessert place, so their chefs are really good.
