After dinner with my niece, longing for a little after dinner treat, but needed gluten free and not wanting wintertime ice cream. SO HAPPY to find a great bakery that also had gluten-free treats for her! AND the cupcakes were awesome, no settling for second-best just to get gluten free. Just thrilled.

I have had cupcakes everywhere, most notably in San Francisco, with highly rated establishments. This one did not disappoint. Richmond has a winner, wonderful selection, reasonably priced with an accompanying filling, made for a delectable experience. Could have used more icing for the price, but....

I had the pecan pie cupcake and was it great! Husband said his was the best vanilla cupcake he had ever had and I make a pretty darn good cupcake at home.

I went to this shop on a Sunday, when they only had one gluten free flavour (vs two flavours on other days). Still, the cupcakes were fresh and delicious! I had the caramel apple ones, which were apple cupcakes with caramel icing and a caramel drizzle. While they aren't the best GF cupcakes I've had, they were certainly tasty.

Special flavor of the day, fresh, and a little pricey, but well worth it, many to chose from, but go early so they dont run out of some !

Just three words for these cupcakes: de li cious! If you are the type that is very concerned about your weight, do not go in this place! I just walked my daughter in and walked out with a big chocolate cupcake. I ate the whole thing! It was good! The selections in the brightly lit case is too inviting. If... More

This place is by far, one of the best cupcake bakeries in all of Richmond! I've come here several times, and have never been disappointed. They have such a range of flavors & creations, and something for everyone. Sure to be a favorite!
