Nestled on the corner of East Bay and Cumberland Rd., Carmella’s is a perfect mash-up of Italian sweets and Charleston charm. They are best known for their gourmet pastries, gourmet gelato, and dessert cocktails. Stop by for a late-night dessert, you WILL NOT be sorry you did.


If you’re ever strolling along upper King at any given time of day and come across a line of folks waiting, it’s most likely for Jeni’s. This Ohio-based scoop shop builds every recipe from the ground up with luscious, grass-grazed Ohio milk. Their flavors are constantly changing, it just depends on what kind of mood the staff is in. Jeni Britton Bauer’s ice creams have been praised by Time (“America’s best”), Cooking Light (“deadly delicious”), and Saveur(“revolutionary”), while Food & Wine stated, “No one makes ice cream like Jeni Britton Bauer.”

Get to Kaminsky’s early in the night, or else you’ll find yourself among a long line of dessert-craving patrons. The good part, though, is the line moves fast, the desserts come out quick, and you can even just get something to-go if you’re not in the mood to sit. On the menu, you can find a rotating selection of delectable desserts made in-house daily, heaping milkshakes, specialty coffees and cold beverage creations.

Recently opened ICE BING Cafe is making quite a name for itself on Spring Street. The cafe prides itself on not serving MSG or GMO products. Their menu includes unique offerings such as bubble tea, fruit-puree enhanced matcha iced teas and bings — homemade syrup and frozen condensed milk.

5. Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Cafe

Sure, Ye Old Fashioned serves up some delicious sandwiches and burgers at a great price, but it’s the ice cream that keeps customers coming back. Sometimes, just a couple scoops of vanilla or chocolate ice cream in a cone dusted with sprinkles is all you need. But sometimes, an outrageous ice cream sundae big enough to feed the whole family will suffice too.
