Sinful dessert

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

For me this place is ok. Its regular cupcake with colorful icing on it. Anyone can make it in my opinion but for my children cupcakes are very attractive. We visited this place many times. 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

The Peppermint cupcake was delicious! not too sweet, combined with dark choco cupcake -- recommended. Carrot cake was not bad too! a bit too sweat on the frosting, but forgivable :) Had hot americano to balance the sweet from the cupcakes, but it was a failure.. Just go there for the cupcake to go, perhaps?

I must commend the marketing team for excellent work. The write-ups, press, and endorsements are really effective in pushing the brand. However, it is important to note the credibility and credentials of those who swear by these cupcakes? Have these "experts" had the opportunity of biting into a luscious cupcake from MAGNOLIA Bakery in NYC or Sprinkles in Beverly Hills?... More
