Today July 19, 2014 me and hubby visited downtown Chicago on a stay-cation. We visited Sprinkles for the very first time, the place was very clean and quaint and the staff was very pleasant. We ordered 3 cupcakes: Red velvet, Salty Carmel, & Double Chocolate. The icing on the red velvet was perfect it was sweet yet you could still... More

Chocolate coconut and chocolate peanut butter cupcakes were amazing! Lived up to expectations. The store itself was a bit crowded but service was excellent getting people in and out effectively!

When I'm in Chicago, this is a definite "must stop"! I wish we would have one in Racine, WI because our Danish bakeries can't make a cupcake even close to the quality that you get at Sprinkles. You can taste the fresh ingredients in all the flavors and oh, those frostings, so delectable with cream cheese yet! It was always... More

If you see a line out the door, get in line and wait, its worth it! The cupcakes were super delicious and you get a lot of variety to choose from. Packaging was also great if you need to take extras home with you on your flight.

Sprinkles is a cute (little) place . Almost all decorations were homeade. The cupcakes were delicious, service outstanding. the waiting area gets packed due to size but there was a little sitting area behind cupcake service area. The cupcakes had cute designs on them and had unique flavors as well as gluten free and vegan varieties.

I happened to catch Sprinkles out of the corner of my eye and couldn't believe it!! Cupcake Wars!! We were on our way to dinner but couldn't resist. Luckily they had minis (or not?!). A red velvet and a banana were absolutely delicious. The space was nice and the staff very friendly. So glad we stumbled upon it--we watch the... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful these cupcakes were. I got the banana cupcake and the triple cinnamon cupcake; both were wonderful. My husband got a vanilla cupcake and a key lime cupcake and he agreed that these were the best cupcakes he has ever had. We tend to eat a lot of cupcakes when we travel because I... More
