What is going on with CCP's rating average too? A single, one start review and that is a 3.1 average? I have seen it over and over, wtf?
Totally fixed contest in the Charleston City Paper. Yobe of West Ashley? Are you serious? Laughable! Ha, ha, ha!
My husband, two young daughters and I live in Canada and visited Charleston for the first time last week. OMG!!! This city is great. It was great fun walking the streets of the city and seeing all the beautiful homes, court yards and, gardens. Our girls are too young to appreciate the history of the city but they are the perfect age to enjoy the shops and restaurants. A favorite place for all four of us was Sweet CeCe's, in the market area. The weather was iffy one day, so we ducked into this shop for a snack. The girls were treated like little princesses by the staff and, had such fun creating their yogurt cups. Great place to get out of the weather and indulge. This is the best frozen yogurt shoppe we've ever been to in the U.S. or in Canada (and yes, we have them here too!).
I work in DT Charleston and found this place by accident. Have been back a couple of times because the selection of flavors & toppings is phenomenal and I like that it's self-serve.
Hey Adam83 - Sorry to prove you wrong, Mr Conspiracy Theorist: I am in no way affiliated with Sweet Ce-Ce's and I have posted other reviews. Good job with your fact checking. Why don't you spend your time going through the Warren Commission Report with a fine toothed comb while you're at it. Really, that's fine, don't go to Sweet Ce-Ce's - they'll be more for the rest of us!
Does seem a little fishy.
Simply the best frozen yogurt in Charleston!
So glad we have Sweet CeCe's in the Holy City.
At Sweet CeCe's on South Market right now watching the Super Bowl on their big TV, using their free WiFi on my computer, and eating a huge cup of Charleston Chocolate flavor frozen yogurt with brownie and cheesecake bites. Can't get too much better than this. Aren't too many frozen yogurt places like this!
Kind of hard not to write a good review on this place. It's WAY over the top! Just amazing, and glad Charleston has Sweet CeCe's. Quality, quality, quality - and, the prices are good. They also have specials too which make it even cheeper. I work about 1 block away and go several times a week its so good. I really try to get either their vegan flavor or gluten free, and I try (not always) to put on a delicious healthy topping - they told me there are almost 50 of them. sometimes (fridays) i cheat! Anyway, highly recommend Sweet CeCe's in the Market. You can't be disappointed.
Unfortunately, Sweet Ce-Ce's is around the corner from my office. I say unfortunately simply because it is almost a borderline addiction. Especially on Tuesdays when I get Double Points on my Sweet Rewards card!The flavors are amazing, non fat gluten free and many non sugar added as well. I like that I can check daily flavors on their facebook page too. The yogurt does not have a strong 'tang' taste to it - more like a custard, actually. The toppings are insane - I mean fresh chunks of cheesecake, Captain Crunch Cereal, Chocolate Covered Almonds...just gonzo stuff! The Pumpkin yogurt with the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal is like having your own cup of pumpkin pie. And the Charleston Chocolate...it is so good it's naughty!
My wife and I just read the other reviews, and we agree. There are a lot frozen yogurt and ice cream places in Charleston now, so we imagine there is more competition. Not really sure there is any competition for Sweet CeCe's. Can't add much to this review; but, just try it. You will see - its very different, and you do get a lot for your money which is important to my wife and me. We like it.
So glad to see it listed in City Paper! It's kind of new in Charleston, and my family and I love it. We go all the time to Sweet CeCe's, and have never been disappointed. Great flavors, amazing atmosphere, and its just a fun place to be. It's next to Bubba Gumps sort of. The Charleston flavors are great by the way - French Quarter Praline is totally addictive.
Out of the ballpark! Sweet CeCe's is nothing like the other frozen yogurt places we've been to in Charleston. It's fro-yo on steroids! Staff was well trained, the place was spotless, the selection was huge, and the flavors were unbelievable. It tasted like rich ice cream; but, they said it was gluten free, and non-fat. We're definitely going back - loved it!!! VERY CHARLESTON!
Legitimate Flavors served by an Amazing Staff. This store gives a very welcoming feeling from the second you step in the door. Dont know the difference between ice cream and gelato but nonetheless this is the best ice cream/ gelato I have ever tasted!
Unlike all the other ice cream parlors, they make all their ice creams ON-SITE. You can even see them make it on-site. The time I was there, just watching them fold the sweet dark cherries into the ice cream definitely made me want to return to try that flavor on my next visit. In fact, I think they make everything there except for one or two things which is specially made for them in Europe. Most of their flavors are not found anywhere else in Charleston - Stracciatella for example. Ask them for a free sample while you're there. I tried Tiramisu and it was delicious & rich. Also, the girls behind the counter are very friendly and customer oriented. Even if there is a line behind you, they don't try to rush you. They treat you as if you're the only customer there and are more than happy to let you sample more than just one flavor. I was there with two other co-workers and we all raved about our varied flavor choices. If you go there, make sure they top off your ice cream with a belgian waffle. I used that in place of the wooden spoon and it was scrumptious to the last bite. For an extra quarter or two, they'll fill the bottom of your cone with whipped cream. I basically said "yes" to evertyhing they asked me and I was treated to a unique cone I've never enjoyed so much.
Crazy prices for ordinary prefab icecream. gcfinest is right!
When was the last time you had a crinkle cut French fry? No, seriously. This is just one of the many surprises that we stumbled upon at the Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Café in Mt. Pleasant this past weekend.
With limited time for lunch we turned into the parking lot of this restaurant and I have to say that overall, I was pleasantly surprised. Although I’ve driven by it several times, I had ventured inside. In the area since 1972 it’s been voted the place for the “Best Ice Cream” by many publications for several years.
Take a step back in time when you enter and are quickly greeted by a few high school kids working as servers. A long counter welcomes you and to your right there is an ice cream oasis of 36 flavors! We couldn’t decide if we wanted ice cream as our entrée, but we knew it was in our future.
For a small sandwich café the menu is extensive. There are 24+ sandwiches, many choices of burgers and hot dogs, salads, soups and ice cream treats. There is also a “specials” section that pairs an item with various things on the menu. This is where we made our selections for lunch.
My husband ordered the “World Famous BLT” that claimed to be made with 10 slices of bacon. It was also to be served with a large scoop of potato salad, two scoops of ice cream and a fountain beverage. I chose a cheeseburger served with fries and a fountain beverage. Both items were $7.89 and we felt like we got a bargain.
Although the café was busy our lunch was served in six minutes. My burger and the BLT were both a large portion and served very hot. Within a few minutes of tasting our lunch the crinkle cut French fries arrived. As I began to watch other patrons receive their meals they were served in the same fashion. Once things are ready – out they come.
I thought about this for a minute and wondered if it would be better if everything was delivered at once. That would have meant that something had to “wait” for the fries to be cooked and honestly, the fries were out in a blink of an eye and almost too hot to eat. I concluded that it’s a service system that’s not broken and doesn’t need fixing.
My burger was not a “gourmet” burger by any stretch of the imagination, but it was good and actually too large to finish. The same held true for the fries that we ended up splitting. The potato salad was something I would not recommend. If I’m not mistaken the salad was very similar to the processed variety that you would find in the deli of a grocery store. Hardly memorable.
The BLT got rave reviews. Served on white toast (how else would you order it?), the bacon was crisp, tasty and more than abundant. It reminded me of something my dad would have made for me when I ran home for lunch in grammar school. Nothing fancy, just good. And then it was time for dessert.
There’s something about an ice cream shop that brings out the little kid in everyone. When it was time to order the ice cream that was included in my husband’s meal the manager (who was clearing our plates) said, “Just go up to the counter and pick what you want.” With wide eyes my husband studied the varieties and slowly, but surely landed on one scoop of southern peach and one of blueberry cheesecake. We took these to go and I had to just about arm wrestle him for a taste.
All in our bill for lunch was just under $17.00 before leaving a tip. We definitely felt like we go a lot for our money and are looking forward to returning – especially for the ice cream. It was easy to see why it’s been voted the “best” for so many years.
Who ever marked this with one dollar sign has lost their marbles. $2.75 for a baby size portion... It tastes o.k. but not worth emptying out your pockets when trying to cool off the whole family. Instead, hit the italian ice girl right down sidewalk. At least she gives you enough to get a brain freeze.
Great Icream !
How can you go wrong? Crepes, berries, bananas, nutella, chocolate, nuts, cream cheese, custard, ice cream, holy cow! The combinations are mind boggling! They are sooo nice too!
