This is one of my favorite “treat yo self” places downtown! They have the best ice cream, candy apples, chocolate covered pretzels etc!! Anything you choose from here will be outstanding!! A little bit pricy but so worth it!!!

This shoppe is not Ghiradelli's but it is chocolate heaven. Their 14% milk fat ice cream is to die for. The staff is friendly and the choices immense. You will get your chocolate fix repaired...guaranteed.

The toasted coconut ice cream is the best anywhere; the staff are excellent. Worth a visit to Charleston by itself.

The service here is good, and their Salted Caramel is amazing! They also have countless chocolates here that look divine. You can tell this ice cream is real the moment you put it in your mouth, and is a must-eat for anyone visiting Charleston.

Called in for ice cream on a very hot day. All sorts of lovely flavours and not just ice cream; fudge, cakes and popcorn if I remember rightly. Air conditioned so you can eat your ice cream at leisure and it won't melt before you...More
