Can I Give You 12 STARS?!!!
“The lemon blueberry cake, the cannoli cake…. Oh man, it’s like a DREAM! This is some of the best dessert EVER!!! I live here in Charleston and my family now requests I contact the shop and make sure their favorite desserts will be available while they are planning to visit. 1 cake per person and 2 “to go” cakes per person is a fair recommendation.” Erin B
You Won’t Understand Until You Go
“On our recent 5 day trip to charleston/mt pleasant, my wife and i frequented countless bars, restaurants, cafes, etc. and this wasn’t the first time we’ve made a culinary tour de charleston either. but only one place called our name multiple times during this trip. we finished our evening enjoying coffee, shakes (spiked), desserts and a bounty of irresistible concoctions at carmela’s 4 straight evenings. if we didn’t have to return home, we would still be there. go to carmela’s. period. end of story. you can thank me later.” Jason G
Best Desserts Ever!
“If you are looking for a great place to stop in and have a dessert with a drink this is the place. All the desserts are AMAZING! Lots of different drinks specials, great coffee plus they have a full bar. We were in town for two days and went both days because it’s that good. Can’t wait to go back!” LifestyleLei
Something For Everyone
It’s hard to put Carmella’s in a box when it comes to concept. There are smoothies and lattes for the morning. Sandwiches and Stromboli for the afternoon. And a vast array of daily changing gourmet desserts, gelato and sorbet along with a full bar with a diverse collection of dessert cocktails and premium wine and beer.
