Welcome to Carmella's
Carmella's Cafe and Dessert Bar is located in the heart of downtown Charleston, SC. We offer a wide variety of house-made pastries, sorbettos and milkshakes, as well as a full bar serving cocktails, spiked coffee, local beers, and food-friendly wines.
Indulge in European-style classics like Canolis and Croissants, or originals like our legendary Tiramisu cake and Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie.
Sample everything from our house-made sorbetto to fresh-baked cakes, pies, and croissants, as well as more adventurous fare including our famous triple-layer waffle and sorbetto sandwich!
From cafe-style grab 'n go breakfasts (baked goods, breakfast sandwiches and smoothies) to artisanal baguettes and stromboli, charcuterie boards and (of course) a mouth-watering assortment of desserts, Carmella's menu requires only one thing from you: bring your appetite! And, of course, we serve Espresso and coffee beverages.
Carmella's proudly serves a full bar. Specialty drinks include Spiked Coffee, "Beer Beer Floats," Adult Milkshakes, Sorbetto Cocktails, and Chocolate Martinis. We also offer a large assortment of local brews and food-friendly Italian vintages, as well as an outstanding selection of Port. Cigar aficionados are welcome to eat and smoke in our outdoor lounge.
