We were on King Street on our way to dinner and came across this cupcake store. All their cupcakes are half price after 10pm and they close at 11pm. Since we had a birthday girl back at the condo, we bought 16 cupcakes. I, personally, had the strawberry cupcake and vanilla cupcake. Both were good and moist The strawberry cupcake... More

We stopped in for ice cream after dinner. The server was a pleasant young lady. My wife had a small cone which she could not finish and I ordered a small cup of mint chocolate chip and chocolate chip. I usually order two scoops but the portions are very large. Prices are very reasonable for the quality and portion size.

Chocolate cupcake was dry. Would have liked it if it was more moist. I would probably try a different bakery. Not worth the special trip (park and walk) to the place.

We liked this place so much we went back twice for dessert - especially as the flavors change from day to day. There's a large board with the different flavors listed and which day they are available. We probably had 8 different kinds (big enough for sharing) but my favorite was the chocolate salted caramel - yum. Also have cake... More

These cupcakes look better than they taste. Tried the blueberry cobbler which was disappointing. The cake part was kind of dry, bland, and not very blueberry like. The milk and cookies was good but not awesome. I the cupcakes are pretty and the allure is all the different flavors but you're probably better off going to Glazed for your sugar... More

The red velvet are memorable-and the salted caramel. Haven't been disappointed yet! There are only a few tables-so we usually take to go-and the box them well!

A cute cupcake store with lots of flavors. I ordered 6 different cupcakes and we enjoyed all of them: The Standard, Black & White, Carrot cake, Chocolate Tuxedo, Salted caramel chocolate and Chocoholic. They offer classic flavors, seasonal flavors and after dark cupcakes infused with alcohol. The staff are very helpful.

I almost didn't eat here after reading the reviews! The gluten fee cupcakes are Devine! They make a different gluten fee every day and mine was chocolate, moist and delicious. They also have lattes, and the staff is super sweet and friendly!

We stopped in one afternoon for cupcakes - very tasty! I had carrot cake and daughter had Chocolate Monkey. Just what we needed to fuel us for a few hours!
