They have a selection of about 10 flavors, some very interesting like the oatmeal one and then standards like peanut butter, red velvet, and vanilla, etc. They were good little cupcakes, but nothing amazing. I was really looking forward to the red velvet, since that...More

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!
