Sweets/Baked goods in Charleston
River Street is very popular:
Their pralines are the best.
Cupcake gets good reviews but I haven't been lately:
Also Maccaroon on John Street has good pastries. I saw a recent review somewhere that stated the owner was rude to the poster. Don't know if that's true, but rudeness here is nevah evah tolerated!

I love Cupcake (both locations) and I love the Macaroon Boutique, too. Cupcake has, of course, cupcakes. Their chocolate with salted caramel icing makes me do a happy dance. Macaroon Boutique has amazing macaroons and really good chocolate croissants. I'm sure they have other delicious items, but those are the ones I'm drawn to every time I go there! I have also enjoyed sticky buns from Wild Flour Pastry on Cannon St. but have only been there once. I really wanted to go back when we were there in June, but I was already having trouble fitting all my meals into 10 days! :)
