Low lit coffee shop vibe with a melting pot of customers. My wife thought it had a romantic ambiance, but maybe that was all the chocolate talking. We had the chocolate cheesecake and went back the next night for snickers cake.

We could not wait to go to Kaminsky's after reading reviews and hearing from others. I had the fruit cobbler which was delicious and an Irish coffee which was okay. I thought it was overpriced especially in comparison to some other cafe's in the nearby...More

Drinks and dessert instead of supper! What better way to eat while on vacation. This is a must stop at least once while visiting Charleston.

My husband and I stopped by here two different times on our recent visit to Charleston. It's always busy and there's always a line, but we ordered desserts to take back to our room on both visits so waiting was not an issue for us....More

I indulged in the Toll house pie, topped with ice cream and hot fudge. The pie was amazing and the service warm and friendly. Must try in Charleston!

This place is always packed so we just go in, order, then take it back to the hotel. They are very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions or able to answer questions. The offer gluten free as well.

We had eaten in TBonz and noticed they got desserts from Kaminsky's. Less than a five minute wait. We lucked out and got a table for two at the window. I ordered an Irish Coffee and my wife ordered a Latte. Both were very good....More

If you like desserts at all, a trip to Kamisky’s is a must. Three of us split chocolate cake and banana cheesecake. However, they were so large that we ended up taking half of each home. The chocolate cake was one of the best slices...More

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