Coffee & Smoothies

Whether you're a Charleston native or a visitor to the Lowcountry, a quick stop at Carmella's will fuel you for a morning of adventure! An energizing, made-to-order smoothie makes a healthy start to the day, while our Espresso and coffee drinks are brewed from organic, single-origin Colombian beans roasted right here in Charleston.
