This place is interesting and the menu looks fantastic. Maybe I'm just not a cupcake freak but I've had cupcakes at home that were as good or better than this. We bought one cupcake to try...the Creme Brulee...there was very little filling and cake was nothing special. I was really expecting some wow here for one cupcake that cost me... More

Um...yum. That's about all I need to say. The cupcakes were huge and delicious. The only cupcake that wasn't the best, was a birthday cake cupcake, it seemed runny or something in the middle, which was disappointing bc it was for my daughter on her birthday and she didn't like it much, and ended up eating mine. Overall pretty good.

I visited Molly's for the first time when visiting Chicago. I went on a Saturday and the place was packed, to me that's a sign that it's a good place. I got a chocolate cupcake(I know so traditional).The cake was so moist and delicious. I would not say it was the best cupcake I ever had but it was good.... More

Very tasty cupcakes with many flavors to choose from. I like this place more than Magnolia in New York, but haven't tried Springkle Cupcake in SF yet. Anyway, all the cup cake I tried are very good to excellent. My favorite is peach flavor which is very unique, only slightly sweet, and balance in flavor.

I visit Chicago a lot and stay in Lincoln Park-Lakeview area. I've been to Molly's a few times more to pick up a cupcake for my grandson. I've had their cupcakes myself but can't say that they are the best. The cake itself is not bad but it's not great either. It's pretty average to me. I guess what makes... More

I was a at a bar by Molly's who was passing out cupcakes. I had one of these decadent cupcake by Molly's and I was in heaven. It was moist, flavorful and delicious. Try it out next time you are in the neighborhood. Its comparable to Georgetown cupcakes... maybe better. ;X

I drive 90 miles for these. The creme brulee is spectacular but isn't always available. The service is fast and friendly. Make sure to go with an appetite because they all look so good and one is never enough. One more thing...the Ron Bennington is an original and is rich enough to be shared with a friend. It is awesome.
