By far the best ice cream I've ever had, the apple pie ice cream was amazing. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a sweet treat to enjoy while walking around the historic market!

Don't buy the pralines they were expensive and not good. I can't speak of anything else in the shop because I only bought pralines to bring back to my husband and friend. Both said they were not good pralines.

We stopped here for ice cream to take on our stroll through Charleston and everyone was pleased. The toasted coconut was amazing. Others in our group had praline and cookies n cream and they loved theirs as well. Fast service as well

You can gain weight just by walking in, but it's well worth it. Lots to choose from, they'll give you samples so you can try before you buy. Loved it
