Temptation rules at Kudzu Bakery in Myrtle Beach. Folks who enjoy sweet and savory flavors will find much to love here.
Located at 7223 N. Kings Highway, Kudzu is a bakery but also a quaint food specialty store with ready-to-go food entrees, as well as a scrumptious assortment of salads, breads, sandwiches and gourmet goods.

Pies include key lime, pecan and apple, while seasonal pies include sweet potato and tomato. Slices are $2.95. Whole pie prices vary.
Although the baked goods take up most of the counter space, Kudzu bakery also has irresistible salads, including chicken, tuna, pimento cheese and egg. There are also crackers, cheeses and unique food gift items. Prices for salads vary, with personal containers of chicken or tuna costing $5.75.
