On a recent trip to La Jolla we could not wait for a visit to Cups. Much to our dismay as we approached the front door, we see the for lease sign in the window. We are sad now. No more lemon ricotta and creme brûlée cupcakes. I guess I need to figure out how to make them.

We stumbled across this place by accident, and returned every day! This is coffee heaven! Lots of different drinks to choose from - our favourite was the Brazilian Latte - organic cane syrup, cardamon, and cinnamon - if I remember correctly! The place is moving up the street, a little more out of the way, but SO worth going to!... More

Don’t even think about visiting La Jolla and not stopping here for cupcakes. I’m a cupcake fanatic and search for unique bakeries wherever I go and these are the BEST cupcakes ever. We picked 6 small samplers and it was the perfect way to solve the problem of trying t decide which ones to get. The cakes are moist and... More

Everything about cups this fun, the people, the atmosphere and most of all the really unique and interesting choices in the individual cakes. Notice I hesitate call them cupcakes; but is a really like many cakes. The complexity of flavors and the unique and interesting combinations of flavors Make them so much more than what my childhood memories are of... More

We stopped in here tonight, just as they were closing (on the dot at 7 PM). They had a few cupcakes left, and we asked if they could "take one more order." The woman behind the counter rudely yelled at us that they were closed, and that "if we let you in, see what happens?!" pointing at another (sad) family... More

My daughter and I stop in here for a treat last Friday. As fans of other cupcake stores popping up we wanted to see what Cups was about. We thought it was just okay. There was nothing special about the cupcakes themselves. My daughter’s strawberry lemonade was too sour. The service was excellent though. I don’t see us coming back... More

Every since my daughter was born we go get a cupcake for her month birthday. It's now 9 months later. I choice this place because a friend bought the cupcakes for my baby shower and they were a hit. I was hooked. I have to say we only get the minis and noticed each time, its not consistent. Sometimes they... More
