Although the quality of the cupcakes has gone down over the years, it is still by far the best cupcakes I have ever had. No matter which country I buy my cupcakes in!

Try ordering death by chocolate. It is very delicious. Other cupcakes such as peppermint cupcake are also good but my favorite is death by chocolate. The price is a little bit expensive though.

When they opened I used to get the Peppermint and the chocolate was good. Now, my favorite is the vanilla sunshine the pink one because I love pink haha! Before the icing were big and spread evenly onto the cupcake now, they're so tiny and small. I guess they're saving with cost since there are other competitors but I still... More

Whenever I reminisce my college days, if there's one thing I'll remember is Sonja's Vanilla Surprise. That's how delicious it is.

The shop is always very busy, staff is efficient. Dont pay attention to the Blackboard menu, as its usually "whatever is in the glass counter" huge range though, complimentry water. Hot coffee not barrista level but ok. best idea - call in advance with an order for pickup, or grab one to take away as you pass. Very very good!

their cupcakes are really pretty and the shop is quite charming (their website is also very adorable). my personal favorite is the strawberries and cream cupcake. the red velvet isn't as good as i hoped it would be but it's still okay.

I always look for a pleasant coffee shop whenever I am with my toddler. So when I went to Mega Fashion Hall, I decided to stay at Cupcakes by Sonja while waiting for my husband to pick us up. The location is very pleasant and it's not crowded (just in front of Zara). Staff are always smiling and very courteous.... More

We tried thier creative creation like Smores. Always its nice to try new ideas but I didnt like it. For me a cupcake should look... More

A friend recommended this cupcake store, so I tried 3 flavors: lemon, peppermint, and their popular red velvet. These costed me 250 pesos, and I felt like I threw my money away. The cake part of their red velvet cupcake tasted like "puto" and that wasn't what I expected of a red velvet cupcake. The cream cheese frosting was greasy.... More
