While heading to lunch on Cannon Street in Charleston we passed by Sugar Bakeshop. We decided to stop in and grab a cupcake and some coffee. I believe a truly great meal begins and ends with dessert. We refer to this as “the bookend” in our restaurant.
Sugar Bakeshop is right down the street from this really adorable stationary store called Mac & Murphy. The treats are delicious, but the thing we loved most about it was the beautiful courtyard tucked away through a side door. We sat out there sipping coffee and chatted with another couple while eating cupcakes from vintage plates. It’s a beautiful space! I only wish I had snapped a photo of it.
It’s tucked away off the beaten path, but definitely worth stopping in if you love coffee, sweets, and ivy covered outdoor spaces. I’m still dreaming about that coconut cupcake. My birthday is next week, and I think a Coconut Cake is in order to celebrate.
