Best Dessert: Kaminsky's Dessert Cafe

By Violet Raftery

Kaminsky’s Dessert Cafe first won Best of Carolina’s best dessert category in 2016. They have continued to earn the honor each year since, and 2023 is no different.

“Kaminsky's entices visitors into its cozy atmosphere with a rotating selection of delectable desserts made in-house daily, in addition to heaping milkshakes, specialty coffees, and cold beverage creations,” their website says.

And those milkshakes may just be the tastiest in the state! USA Today Travel has named Kaminsky’s as the “best place to get a milkshake in South Carolina.”

The extensive and delightful menu also offers teas, hot chocolate, soda, sundaes, floats, dessert martinis, a full-service bar and more.

If you are looking to celebrate somewhere else, Kaminsky’s offers full cake, cheesecake and pie orders, as well as cookie and brownie trays for online order and pick-up.

They even appeal to special occasions with a variety of specialty dessert orders and seasonal drinks.

And just when you thought it could not get any better, they offer a number of gluten-free alternatives so that everyone can enjoy a sweet treat.

So, the next time you find yourself on Gervais Street, the Best of Carolina voters would recommend giving Kaminsky’s a try.
