Going to Kaminsky's is a must every time we visit Charleston. All of their desserts are excellent, yet the Very Berry Cobbler is to die for.

We ate WAY too many desserts here and they were all awesome! The service was excellent! My favorites were the coconut cake and the key lime pie. Everything we sampled from our group was fantastic. Great after dinner spot!
