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.

This was on our bucket list of places to visit and sweet treats to eat when coming to Charleston and boy are we happy we did!! We sampled a little bit of everything - cupcakes, cookies and iced tea.

This is my favorite place for cupcakes when visiting Charleston. It is off the beaten track a bit but certainly worth the walk. It is also right down the street from one of my favorite lunch spots, 5 Loaves.

We went there for the cookies but it was the cupcakes that stood out. They were delicious and the employees were very pleasant and helpful. I did, however, expect that the cookies were the items that brought customers into the shop, but that was not the case this particular day, they were a bit hard and dry.

I LOVE, love, LoVe this Bake shop! The owners are so friendly, the decor is farm rustic, salvage and of course the treats are to die for! I can't tell you how often I've recommended 'Sugar' to friends or even complete strangers when they say their headed to Charleston!
