Went searching for a perfect latte and found it at this location. The owner was very friendly. Also had a perfectly toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese. Did not try the cupcakes this visit but will definitely return for one.

Not sure, but the owner is a delight and very helpful, best customer service in Vail, I'm sure if she does not make Birthday Cakes, she will point you in the right direction.
