This is the perfect way to finish a sightseeing day in Charleston! The weather was cool when we were there, but it would also be the perfect treat on a hot afternoon.

That was one big scoop that you keep on eating. The taste was so delightful and i loved the waffle cones.

The workers seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs and recommending flavors. The apple pie ice cream was our favorite. The "small" bowl was huge!

Stopped in for a treat while busting the City Market. So many things to choose from. My daughter had a dipped apple that was huge and I had Smore icecream which was super good! The young lady that waited on us was so nice too!

When your choices are chocolate and ice cream there isn't much to be critical of. Although we didn't try the chocolates, the ice cream was delicious. At least 30 different flavors of Kilwins own ice cream to choose from...cones, bowls, sundaes, etc. Best of all...More

Awesome chocolate, way overpriced. There was definitely a wide variety of goodies. We got milk and dark turtles, and a pecan caramel chocolate something whose name I forget. All very good, just expensive.

By far the best ice cream I've ever had, the apple pie ice cream was amazing. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a sweet treat to enjoy while walking around the historic market!

Don't buy the pralines they were expensive and not good. I can't speak of anything else in the shop because I only bought pralines to bring back to my husband and friend. Both said they were not good pralines.

We stopped here for ice cream to take on our stroll through Charleston and everyone was pleased. The toasted coconut was amazing. Others in our group had praline and cookies n cream and they loved theirs as well. Fast service as well
