Stopped in after dinner to pick up dessert. We found the shop delightful and the cupcakes beautifully displayed BUT, the staff member was not friendly. Our questions about the cupcakes seemed to annoy her. Sorry to say that I wish the service was as excellent as the cupcake.

Stopped in to pick up dessert this past weekend and had some of the best cupcakes we ever have had! Staff was very friendly, the only hard part is making a decision as there are so many great choices.

After a day exploring there was nothing better to have an ice cream. This shop served the best smooth and creamy ice cream I had tried for many years.

If you like cupcakes then this is the place to go. There are so many varieties to choose from it was hard to decide which ones to buy. You won't be disappointed with whatever cupcake you choose.

A lot of times I find store bought/bakery cupcakes to be a bit on the dry side, but not these. These were so fresh and so delicious. SO GOOD. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Plenty of choices and well worth the calories. Place was very clean and we felt very welcomed. I would recommend getting multiple deserts because they were that darn good. Cupcake Charlie's is in a great location to stop in when enjoying a nice stroll through Thames.

Stopped by here after dinner at Benjamin's for a little dessert to take back to hotel. Great variety of cupcakes. We picked up Chocolate Mint and an Oreo Cupcakes. Great flavor and reasonably priced.

It was my birthday, I was by myself, so I decided to have my own little celebration. I ordered a Hot Fudge Sundae cupcake and they gave me candle and a lighter and it was "Happy Birthday" to me. Yay!
