My only complaint is with myself - I should not have eaten the whole slice of pie. Excellent lemon pie and I could not stop. Came here after it was recommended for dessert by a waiter at another restaurant. So glad I did. Yum!

This used to be a must go place in Charleston, but now not so much. The brownie sundae is still pretty tasty but the other options don't seem to be a true homemade bakery quality.More
