Yum! The Coolest Ever – A Cupcake ATM

Words can't explain how light these cupcakes are. They are amazing. Tried 2 styles but I tell you all are awesome.

Even if you are NOT a cupcake fan, you MUST try one. They are fresh and beyond flavorful. Price is good for such a delicious treat. We were lucky enough to get in quickly because when we went past later, there was a line out the door and down the sidewalk. It would be worth the wait though.

Love the frosting and the chocolate cupcakes are great. I tried one other than chocolate or vanilla and chocolate and was very disappointed. It was dry and did not have a lot of flavor.

If you're shopping in the area, take a few minutes to purchase a cupcake from the ATM. A unique way to purchase a cupcake and makes for great conversation. We were lucky and had no line outside to make our purchases.

Ordered a dark chocolate cupcake around 5 PM on a Monday. Delicious! Because of its popularity, there was quite a line (a five/six minute wait, not too bad). It was my first time coming to Sprinkles Cupcakes; definitely had to stop by and give it a try after hearing about it. I just love the great selection of cupcake flavors!... More

Typically, Sprinkles cupcakes blow me away and I try to pick up at least one when I'm in Chicago. On August 9, 2015, I tried the green tea version. The cake was so bland and overpowered by the icing that it was tasteless. I was particularly disappointed because it was my "cheat day" item for the week. What a bummer.

Heard about it and ran into it while out walking. Cupcake was good, not the best, but good. the cupcake ATM was a really neat concept and my son loved that. Worth a visit.

This is has good cupcakes but the greatest part is that if you call in your order, they will bring it out to you. In this trendy, busy area not having to find a parking space is golden.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
