We visited Kaminsky's on a culinary tour and had the most amazing desert here- seriously, it was so yummy. It made me want to come back for dinner and just have pie for desert!

This is our third trip to Charleston and we always come to Kaminsky’s. We’ve been in town three days and gotten desserts here twice. I always get the pecan pie. The atmosphere is neat and the service is friendly.

Could not believe the variety of desserts! Also, the size of them was "sinful". Definitely the best we found in all of Charleston
