Kaminsky’s Dessert Cafe is well worth the trip!
Kaminskys is about to celebrate there 25th anniversary Tuesday 4/28 (see details here) . I can see why they have lasted this long in Charleston, SC as many others have come and gone.
This place is always hopping and we had the pleasure of ending our night here for Dessert with a side of dessert (which is how I would explain their amazing Martini selection). Although, there was a line for take out and a line for a table the staff was managing the people well and everyone was willing to wait for a chance to taste the prize.
Anna the Manager and Spencer the Bartender took great care of us. Spencer who has been working there for 5 years recommended two drinks including: Toasted Almond Martini and the White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Martini…. ummm yeah, they tasted as good as they looked.
For our side, we went with Dessert! Shocking I know. We had a hard time deciding they all looked so good, but went with the Carrot cake to split and this piece was amazing! If you like Carrot cake, don’t walk but run to Kaminskys and get some… like right now. I’m serious!
After talking with Spencer, we learned that the busiest times are Thursday, Friday, Saturdays and Sundays especially in the evening right after the dinner rush. If you want to go when it is less busy, check out Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday especially right after they open at 1 and pre-dinner time. We enjoyed our time and will be back to sample some of the other amazing options!
There are locals and there are tourists but everyone is happy and now you know why.
