Love, love, love. I agree, they're a little pricey, but they use local and organic ingredients whenever possible. It's also a locally-owned business. All the more reason to try their amazing flavors.
I love Saffron. It's not "precious" but honest value for the price. We got my daughters b-day cakes here many years (chocolate mousse cake) and we also love the veggie curry. The owner is a kind hearted person who gives to the community.
The veggie pita was awful...a few veggies with spaghetti sauce poured over it. Just tasteless for around $9.
Wild Flour is the best. The pesto, sun dried tomato, mozzarella scone is my favorite, but everything I've ever eaten there has been delicious. Lauren is fantastic. I hate to miss a single Sticky Bun Sunday. I always have such a great experience there!
I stopped in for sticky bun Sunday this morning and ended up getting a strawberry/nutella turnover as well. It was so good I ate the whole thing in the car on the way home and didn't save a single bite for my husband like I thought I would. It was amazing and so affordable for such a large pastry. I'll definately be back next Sunday.
Wild Flour is fantastic. Great place to get a terrific cup of coffee and a scone, muffin, cookie, cupcake or--on Sundays--the best sticky bun ever created. This is the the kind of unique local business that helps make Charleston such a vibrant, interesting place.
I refuse to buy cookies, tarts, or cupcakes anywhere else in Charleston because they just won't stack up to Sugar.
We have needed a good French bakery downtown for years and now we have one. Best croissants in the area.
The best Cupcakes & Pies I've ever had. If you ever need a good treat for a special occasion or for no reason at all, this is the place to go. I've tried a lot of the other highly talked about places in town and so far none of them can compare. I highly recommend the chocolate bourbon pecan pie.
This bakery is AWESOME. I live in the area and am a regular here for good reason! Be sure to try the pesto/sundried tomato scones and double chocolate cookies SO GOOD! Great pastries and VERY reasonable prices. Also, head in early for sticky bun Sunday!
Ok, can you call it a bakery if there are no actual baked goods in said store? The owner had no menu other than a large list of coffees to purchase, a few berries with chocolate, and one pastry. Apparently, you have to go to the website and order in advance.. this seems to defeat the purpose of having a storefront, with a bunch of empty cases. Not to mention the owner was less than forthcoming regarding POTENTIAL offerings. Good luck with that. Charleston will remain a bakery-free city. Saffron a can barely be called a bakery with the flavorless items that they do offer.
This place is amazing. Everyone recommended another popular dessert place instead of Baked. We went there, and it was okay. The next night we tried Baked, and that was it! We skip the other place, and are glad we do every time! Try anything with buttercream...especially the pistachio cupcakes.
Saffron used to be a lot better. Past times I have been it hasn't seemed very clean. The menu is okay. I just never feel like the food is that fresh. The day old bread is a nice touch but definitely tastes like old bread.
I first heard about this new bakery while having lunch at Five Loaves. One of the waitresses raved about Lauren's delicious chocolate croissants and said her husband was sneaking to the bakery every morning to buy one. I love chocolate croissants. I was so excited. I have been trying to sample one ever since. First, I went on a Tuesday. No croissants on Tuesdays. Then, I went on a Wednesday. Sold out. I tried another Wednesday. Not ready yet. Finally, today she said that she would only bake them once a week because they were too much work. She failed to mention what day. I give up! All the other items there are good. Selection is limited. Also, good luck finding the place. The sign is hung the wrong direction for a busy street and you cannot see it easily.
2nd location opens today 1/21/10 on King St. where Three Dog Bakery used to be...chk it out
The cupcakes are great, but I think they are much too pricey. Especially, one of the ones they gave me was unbelievable small. I had a two-for-one coupon, but even at 3.50 for two it is a little out there.
Baked is a real gem and is not to be missed by anyone who enjoys a sweet treat now and then. They are right on East Bay street and have a nice sitting room indoors or you can enjoy the view from the sidewalk. As soon as I walked in I was overwhelmed by the complex mix of espresso, chocolate, and pastries. I didn't even know where to go first. Luckily I was with my wife so we each ordered a few items and shared them - everything tasted like heaven. These guys even make their own marshmallows. The coffee was intense and delicious and the variey of pastry, cookies, and other bakery items is unrivaled within driving distance. Great place to start your day or keep it going.
Heaven!!! The service was friendly & suggestive not to mention knowledgable on all the incredible baked treats available. The Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Bar was the best sinful pleasure I had during my Charleston jaunt. The coffee drinks & hot chocolates were wonderful as well. With all the Starbucks out there how refreshing to discover a crafted coffee.
To top it off the relaxed urban atmosphere, complete with a library room made it a delight thats mighty delovely.
Friendly staff, delicious sweets and really cute shop. Highly recommend!
I agree, pretty good food and excellent desserts! I recommend the veggie curry and the chocolate cheesecake.
