We stopped by the cupcakery because we heard they had gluten free cupcakes. We bought 3 and everyone loved their cupcakes! They were delicious. They had both gluten free and vegan cupcakes. The prices weren’t bad either.

Love cupcakes and these were tasty! Sampled a Red Velvet and Summer Lemon/Coconut combo. Wish we had purchased a few more. Small store with no seating but I would make the walk back there next time we're in the area!
