Charleston's Candy Kitchen

Charleston's Candy Kitchen is across the street from the city market and if you are like most people, it is a must on your visit to Charleston.  They offer free samples of the best Pralines ever.  Sometimes there is even someone standing on the steps with samples trying to lure you in - if the offer of public restrooms doesn't do it.  Also notice the black iron anchors on the side of the building - so "Port City".  And the shiny brass letter "A" near the entrance.  You will see brass street numbers on many of the old homes.  You can see a collection of them HERE. This really is a great Charleston building and you can see some of the detail better if you click on the picture.

Have a good day!


  1. hmmm I love pralines!
    I like a lot this charming architecture, this picture is wonderful and for sure it's a store that I would like to visit as well!
    Hugs and a nice week ahead,

  2. I need to start compiling a list of all the things and places I need to see in Charleston. Great photo.

    1. Kate, there is so much to do and see here that you will need a concise list for your visit! :) I have barely scratched the surface!

  3. I guess their slogan might be "If you are able to walk up these steps, you are in good enough shape to indulge yourself with some of our candy."

  4. I like that, Dave, and will remember it as I get older! As long as I can get up those steps, I get the praline! Yea!!
