“Tasty cupcakes but overpriced”
Review of The Cupcake Lounge

The cupcakes here are quite good and I would definitely recommend. Moist, rich, generously covered in sweet icing. However, for the price they aren't particularly good value.

If you want something delicious and you like cupcakes this place is for you. Very small and personable staff. Great place to have a glass of wine with the flavour of the day. It's a must if you're visiting the city

Tried The Cupcake Lounge for the first time spontaneously while looking for a nice cafe to get some work done. The amount of cupcake selection they had was positively-overwhelming, I wanted to try them all!
I ordered an almond raspberry cupcake and a small white hot chocolate. The cupcake was delicious and I could've easily eaten 2 more, very soft with an exquisite buttercream frosting that was not too heavy, although you might think so because of the amount that's on each cupcake, but no it was just the right balance of sugary and creamy.
The place is small and could easily get crowded but I went in the evening and I was the only customer seated there (many people came in and ordered to go).
4/5 stars only because the white hot chocolate would NOT be something I would recommend to a friend, tasted like steamed skim milk with foam on top.
All in all delicious cupcakes both tasty and aesthetically pleasing!

I work in the Market and decided that forecasting a tough day it was the perfect time to grab these pricey delights. Had the raspberry and blueberry cake. Delicious
I understand they are luxury treats hence the price and they probably have crazy rent expenses because of their great location. Really good cupcakes., but pricey so will buy in moderation
