excellent but pricey cupcakes. Mostly icing! They occasionally have gluten free options. Good variety, they have good coffee too and a small sit down area

Delicious assortment of cupcakes freshly made. I recommend the red velvet, peanut butter chocolate and Germain chocolate :)

We went to this bakery after our lunch next door at the Blue Cactus. It was a really nice treat and they had a pretty good variety of cupcakes. Prices were ok seeing how it is located in the Byward Market.

Amazing and creative flavours, always fresh and lots of icing for every bite. Extremely nice staff and custom orders.

Always stop in when nearby. Delicious cupcakes. Different flavours daily. Perfect frosting. Thick sweet and creamy.

We used to go there 3 years ago to get a scrumptious cupcake. Went there today and was disappointed to see how smalk the cupcakes were. 4,75$ +tax for a tiny cupcake. They might still be good but I'll have to pass. Sorry.

Regular cupcakes were $4 each. So many good ones we wanted to try so we opted to get 6 for $12. A little more gluttonous and a little more frugal. I personally liked the banana cupcake. Only five seats but cosy. Long to go back....More

My daughter and I visited the cupcake lounge in the Ottawa market, we paid 9 dollars for 2 cupcakes. It was good, but too expensive!

The cupcakes here are quite good and I would definitely recommend. Moist, rich, generously covered in sweet icing. However, for the price they aren't particularly good value.

If you want something delicious and you like cupcakes this place is for you. Very small and personable staff. Great place to have a glass of wine with the flavour of the day. It's a must if you're visiting the city
