Pearls cupcakes are AMAZING! By far the most rich in flavor while still maintaining the moisture throughout. When we walked in they had many different cupcakes for sale along with a display table to showcase the artistic designs they could offer for Super Bowl cakes....More

When its hard to find high-end gluten free cupcakes, Pearls provides the solution. Their taste and consistency were unrivaled. One point deducted for lack of ambiance (presumably you could sit down and enjoy dessert here, but I wouldn't) and difficulty parking. But for special order...More

We found this little gem because of the Taste of Charlottesville Food Tour. Grandma Pearl would be proud to see her grand-daughter's creations, tweaked from her original recipes, to sugary perfection. Try the Triple Threat, a vanilla berry concoction with a hint of lavender in...More

Always looking for gluten free goodies. They are always dry and crumbly. Had the chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. The cupcake was very moist and the frosting was great as it wasn't too sweet! Will definitely go back when in Richmond.
