Delicious cupcakes! Moist, fresh, fun flavor combinations. Staff was super friendly and helpful. I don't generally like cupcakes from shops (like GiGis) because I am a homemade cupcake snob , but these were amazing. We stopped in again on our way out of town to take some home to family, but not all of them made it home!

This bakery is in a nondescript storefront...nothing bold, bright or hugely outstanding about it.. just a nice simple place. There was a very nice middle aged man in the store who thanked us for coming and hoped we would enjoy the cupcakes.. was glad he was nice because the girl who helped us, rang us up, etc. was not especially...

Amazing cupcakes! Great selection and quality. Worth the drive over to Cannon street. We will definitely go back next time we are in town!

Great tasting cupcakes but small for the price. Lacking in customer service. Not very helpful and seemed to be in a hurry. Lemon curd cupcake was my favorite. Also had the strawberry and the almond with raspberry filling. Smelled great in the shop and the outside of the shop is very cute!

I live in the Charleston area and LOVE this bakeshop! Their specialty is cupcakes. I am not a cupcake person, so I indulge in their fantastic mini lemon tarts and assorted cookies. Yum!!! In the summer months they make their own frozen pops!!! They dabble in various treats and achieve gastronomical success with everything that they sell. My adult children... More

A little off the beaten path, but WELL worth the detour! Enjoy lunch at Five Loaves first and its a short walk to an awesome dessert Be sure to take some home for any other sweet lovers in your home/hotel room or don't even tell them you went! Noatter what you choose you can't go wrong!

Great spot near my office that has stellar iced coffee and some great sweets, although a little of the pricier side, still worth it!

Without a doubt, Sugar is my favorite bakery in Charleston. Hidden on Cannon Street, in an up-and-coming foodie neighborhood, Sugar could not be a more charming atmosphere. With a slight hint of French country mixed with vintage-looking distressed walls, Sugar is everything I would want my own bakery to be. The owners are down to earth, kind, and passionate. I... More

This cute little bakery was a delightful treat. We tried several flavors and were impressed by all! This is a great stop for an afternoon treat away from the more touristy destinations.
