Absolutely delicious homemade tasting cupcakes. Satisfying taste and local business is an icing on the cake.

$4 a pop.. but they're delicious. We picked up four and they're all very tasty, super moist, and taste just as good a day or two after buying.

This place is small and cute, in the Byward Market. Go there after having a dinner in one of the market restaurant and you'll see that the cupcakes are very good.

I pick up this indulgence once a month. A dozen. No tax if 6 or 12. They are good, they change daily. The service is patient, happy, polite and I like this place. They are a gem in this market area of Ottawa.
