The menu is chock-full of sinful indulgences like Tollhouse Cookie Pie, Turtle Cheesecake, Creme Brulee, Italian Creme Cake, and Hummingbird Spice Cake, not to mention various hot toddies like the Hot Apple Pie (apple cider, Tuaca, and cinnamon stick). Of course, you can't leave without trying one of the famous dessert martinis, from the Classic to the Toasted Almond. This is a must-see for all with a sweet tooth!

a young man walking his dog smiled at us and said, "It's the best dessert in Charleston." He is not alone in his appraisal; Kaminsky's has been voted best desserts in Charleston by The Charleston City Paper. It seemed like the perfect introduction to me.
Once you have decided to do the deed, that is just the beginning of the adventure. Stepping inside, you need to decide if you will take a table and enjoy your indulgence in house or take it to go. Since we knew coffee and tea awaited us at the French Quarter Inn, we took ours to go.
That was the easy part, but now you must decide what to take with you. On any given day, you will have a large variety of choices; it changes daily.
It might be caramelized banana cake, fresh fruit torte, mandarin orange cake, or hummingbird spice cake. On this particular day, there was a chocolate cake covered with whole strawberries and chocolate ganache, mile-high carrot cake, and a coconut cream cake that was calling my name. I have never met anything coconut that I didn't love. I watched longingly as my huge piece was gently laid in the Styrofoam container.
Al was overwhelmed and finally said "just pick something for me." I decided on a red velvet cake, a luscious red chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge frosting.
Be prepared for a steep bill. The two pieces of cake cost us $15. However, it was worth every penny. It was a delicious as it looked: moist, sweet and decedent, and oh-so-satisfying.
If you can't get to the shop, T-Bonz Grill serves Kaminsky's desserts.
