I came across this gem when trying to find a place to sit down to rest my feet after a long day of shopping. I actually didn't realize till I ordered that all cupcakes were gluten free which is an added bonus. I ordered a flat white with a hazelnut heaven cupcake. There's a bit of Nutella inside which makes... More

This place is amazing! It was under new management, and the new owners are great. We spent quite a long time simply socializing, laughing, and joking with the staff. I think they would have been perfectly happy if we didn't buy anything at all. All of our desserts were fresh and delicious. Worth a visit!

Staff went beyond the call of duty and were helpful with directions. Great coffee and cake when in a hurry... Great place to watch people hurry by.

I decided to try this place out twice before writing a review. On both visits (a couple months apart) I had dry and bad tasting cupcakes. I had the Vanilla Vanilla - tasted like a sponge, as well as the Red Velvet. It was obvious that the red velvet cupcake was old - the cake part tasted like the wrapper.... More

I have tried almost the entire range of cupcakes (standard and special range) over 5 separate visits. They have a number of outlets in Sydney metro area. The range of flavours is varied and interesting. My favourites are the red velvet, sticky date, hummingbird and the cheesecake one. If you are on a "diet" you can have the mini sized... More
