Apologies in advance for the overly-gushy review that I'm about to write. I adore cake and cupcakes, and this place has the best EVER. Lots of adjectives and superlatives to come... The place itself is nothing super spectacular - just kind of cutsie and plain, but I like that you can sit on swings. The cupcakes are the main attraction... More

My girlfriends and I visited after the 5K Color Run on June 22, 2014. I tried the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing and it was very, very good. I also purchased the peach cobbler, blueberry cheesecake, butterscotch caramel and peanut butter nutella to take home. After trying all of them that I brought home I have to say... More

For my Bday, my daughter brought me here after dinner for my choice of cupcakes. What a fun, eclectic place! We got there kind of late so they were left with a few flavors. But, wow, we loved ours! They were also busy closing but allowed us to sit on their fun swing & took a photo of us, awwwwwwwwwww........ More

My husband and I were on an adventure in the city. We take the train in and wander. I was showing him my former bad apartment and we walked down the street. Had Molly's been there when I lived in the area, I might never have moved. The first thing you see when you walk in is the swings. They... More

This restaurant was rocking with "70 - "80's rock & roll tunes when the ten of us entered. The smell of coffee and sweetness fills the air. Very casual and so much fun !! They even have large wooden swings at the counter for seats. . .Wow!! There are also many cafe style seating otherwise. The choice of cupcakes and... More

Took my niece to Molly's over Easter break and I have been dreaming about those heavenly cupcakes ever since! There is something magical about Molly's...you feel happy and carefree as soon as you enter the door. Fun, laid back atmosphere...gotta love the swings as seats! The pastries are made with love and care and the daring, creative cupcake recipes are... More

Incredibly adorable cupcake place. This was the first exceptionally warm Chicago day so the work crew was in great spirits. Music was loud...sometimes felt too loud...but they were dancing, joking with customers. Not too many places to sit but if you can beat a long line, you could luck out and get a chained swing seat at the counter. If... More

I wanted to order nice cupcakes for an office event and picked Molly's based on the great reviews and their ability to deliver downtown. Their service was perfect from beginning to end - cupcakes arrived exactly when they said they would, were packaged perfectly so all in perfect form, and my colleagues absolutely loved the cupcakes! I had a mix... More

This place is so cute! And has a full house of beautiful servers. I love their cupcakes and I make sure to bring home some to share whenever I'm around this place. I love their red velvet cupcakes what's more is that you get to choose which icing you want on it! Isn't that just lovely?
