We are so excited add another tour to our repertoire. This tour will focus on the one thing everyone loves: dessert. Charleston is full of magnificent restaurants, all of which serve up some very noteworthy after-dinner delights. We wanted to highlight the place that have delicacies truly worth experiencing when visiting Charleston.
Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Patissier is located at 90 Society St. For anyone who appreciates gourmet chocolate, this stop on the tour is for you. They create luxury chocolates and chocolate sculptures for all occasions. Also available are preservative-free chocolates handmade from premier European chocolate with the freshest ingredients.
Dixie Supply Bakery and Café is no place for dessert amateurs. Located on State Street in the Market area, Dixie is known for its down-home cooking and southern flair. They specialize in recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation so the desserts are second to none. Everything is made from scratch, and the dessert menu is continually changing. Try their large homemade chocolate chip cookies or one of their original pies. Trust us – you’ll fall in love with Dixie’s desserts.
Market Street Sweets is located on one of the busiest corridors in the city. Market Street Sweets specializes in all things desserts, including candy, pralines, cakes and even caramel popcorn. The small shop is quite a wonderland of delicacies and not many leave its doors without a basket (or two) of sweets. They have some of the best pralines so don’t leave Charleston without sampling at least one.
Lastly Carmella’s Dessert Bar can be summed up in one word – yum. Gourmet pastries, gelato, ice cream and Italian ice are front and center when entering their shop off East Bay Street. Pair all that with a dessert cocktail and you will be good to go! From the Peanut Butter Explosion to their Italian Rum Cake you will leave feeling satisfied and maybe a little sweeter (how could you not?).
So, as you can see, we are very excited about our new dessert tour in more ways than one. Make reservations soon to experience the sweeter side of Charleston. Tours start April 17 and will only be offered on Fridays and Saturdays from 4-6 p.m. Call 843-722-8687 for more information or click here to learn more.
