As the rain came down in Charleston, stopped in for a treat. Table of 6 was easily accommodated for us. Yet the room is small and I could see where there may be a wait at a more touristy time. Fun concept of dessert and...More

Located right on Market Street. Your go to place for dessert and/or coffee. Best to eat a meal next door at Tbonz and then get dessert from Kaminsky's. Cake, pie, cheesecake, brownies and icecream. Dont forget the coffee.

Nice little place to stop for a quick coffee, iced or hot, dessert, or full meal. Right by the market, so it's a quick duck in. Nice ambiance.

You must stop by to have dessert at Kaminsky's! There is a main menu and then an ever changing dessert menu. I would have to say that it is worth the wait!!!! Go before you leave Charleston.

Wow. An unbelievable dessert. We shared a hot berry cobbler and it was fantastic. We had to wait for about 20 min for takeout but it was well worth the wait!!! Yummy!!

Great place to try desserts. Service was good and fast. The desserts were really good. The only negative is that the Italian Creme cake had a great icing but very dry cake. Pies are the better choice.

The cake slices are quite large.....almost like a small cake. I would think they would sell a whole cake
