So delicious!! I tried 6 different cupcakes and they were all perfect. I found this bakery on my first trip to Boston and on my second trip to Boston the first thing I did was walk back to that bakery.

Since I was passing by, decided to give this place a try again since it's always busy and others seem to like it. This time I was pleasantly surprised... the vanilla cupcake I tried was very good. Still not my favorite of all the cupcake places, but my favorite doesn't have a Boston location. This will do.

I had previously been to Georgetown cupcakes in Soho, New York and had loved it. So when visiting Boston we thought it necessary to visit. The cupcakes are delicious and of great quality, as is the icing and frosting. I would recommend the salted caramel cupcake and the vanilla birthday cake cupcake. Only criticism is that I wish there were... More

Was celebrating a birthday, and stopped to get a dozen cupcakes. Was busy, but they were efficient and took our order fairly quickly. Lots of choices, everyone left happy. Cupcakes were delicious. My kids have eaten at Sprinkles in LA, they still like Sprinkles better but Georgetown Cupcakes were eaten by all.

A must visit place when in Boston. I'm not usually a fan of cupcakes, always like the look of them but the taste usually disappoints me. The cupcakes made here are delicious, the cake mix is moist and fluffy whilst the topping of ganache is so well done; not your usual sugary icing/frosting. If only Georgetown Cupcakes were in the...

The cupcakes were absolutely delicious and moist. My friend bought cupcakes from another place and we all agreed Georgetown cupcakes were delicious and moist compared to their competitor. There are lots of variety. So hard to choose. Cupcakes were neatly placed in a nice box so they stay intact during our trip back home. Know which ones you want before... More

The cupcakes were not only delicious, but the variety, so hard to choose. Seemed pricey at $3.75 a piece but once we ate them, we got over the price shock! Worst part, was staff that did not seem quite on their game - the girl who got us coffee acted as it if we were interrupting her day....

We were taken to this by our cousin who lives in Boston -apparently he takes all his visitors without fail to this place to give them a sweet introduction to Boston. And according to him it has always worked and wowed everyone he took there. The cupcakes impressed us also. Red velvet was especially good. Iced caramel latte and Mocha... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
