I had the best cupcake ever from Molly's and I have been to many cupcake bakeries. It doesn't matter what kind you may choose you will not be disappointed.

Just. Wow. Melt in your mouth cupcake! The tiramisu was divine. So moist and flavorful but not overly sugary sweet. Definitely a perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth.

We came here after dinner one night for a cupcake. My husband and I got separate cupcakes with the intentions of sharing... I took one bite- next thing I know- my cupcake was gone! It was delicious! (It was the chocolate cupcake). The whole atmosphere of the place was perfect. Great music and the staff sing along! And if you... More

Everything we tried was amazing- the quality of ingredients and uniqueness of the flavors can not be beat. Best cupcakes ever PERIOD Glad we don't live closer becuase it would be hard not to go there daily.

Molly's has the best cupcakes in Chicago in my opinion. Every time we are in the city, we have to make a trip. The center filled cupcakes are just ridiculous. I can't even describe how yummy they are! My favorites are the Cake Batter and the Cookie Dough. Do yourself a favor and make the trip to try them!

Uhm let's just say the fillings are out of this world. I'd recommend the birthday cake batter and cookie dough cupcake.

Molly's has the best cupcakes in Chicago hands down (and way better than Sprinkles)! Every time I come to Chicago, I HAVE to go to Molly's to get some cupcakes; and I usually get a box of four to go. They are THAT good. I usually get the Cookie Monster and Cake Batter cupcakes. The Cookie Monster has cookie dough... More

Very good cupcakes. We had the Cookie Monster & molten chocolate, which were both filled, as well as a Banana cupcake. All were very good. Icing was very sweet & very rich but the kids loved it!

Rock hard edges, literally crumbling as if to be very stale. Lack of flavor and way over priced. The place is very cute, uncomfortable seating.
