Instagrammable Desserts in Charleston That Are Worth The Calories

Hello from Charleston! I’m currently on a trip to Charleston this week and while I am planning on sharing a more expansive general restaurant guide, I thought I’d spotlight some Instagrammable dessert shops in the meantime! These three places have either beautiful interior design on their shops, most beautiful sweet treats, or both! I hope these Instagrammable desserts in Charleston will inspire you to preserve a delicious moment in a photograph. And yes, they’re not only beautiful but are also worth the calories!

Instagrammable Desserts in Charleston

Take a sweet flight with Off Track Ice Cream

Off Track Ice Cream’s space is so instagrammable with big windows, an elevator shaft converted to hold some cozy booths, and big leafy plants to make you feel inspired to document your sweet escape. I can confirm that their most popular flavor of Cookies and Cream will win you over. Another admirable trait of Off Track Ice Cream is that they support the Lowcountry economy by sourcing some of their ingredients locally. They list these partnerships on their website.

These square-shaped donuts from BKedShop are ready for their closeups

These are my first square-shaped donuts! And you know I’ve put in the work when it comes to researching donuts. They have an impressive amount of flavors including a popular vegan one! I personally couldn’t resist a dessert staring one of my favorite ingredients: cereal. The donuts are yeast donuts but their texture was unlike any other yeast donuts I’ve had. They were almost like brioche buns! BKedShop is fun to eat and fun to gram.

Sugar Bakeshop with Elegantly Decorated Cupcakes

This adorable and snug cupcake shop doesn’t have the space to invite you to pull up a chair, but their cupcakes are photogenic and are quite the treat. I loved my peanut butter cupcake. Next time I’m going to try their popular lemon curd cupcake!
