A large variety of cupcakes, perfect size. We went for the gingerbread style. Coffee ok, but perhaps a bigger variety needed?

Modest sized cupcakes, but big on flavor. The perfect little great at the end of the day. Tried the chocolate with chocolate frosting, and all-vanilla. Sweet, but not too. Good selection of flavors available, so check it out to see what will tickle your palate!
