Worth every penny!

Our daughter was determined to use the cupcake ATM and it did not disappoint. I had the monthly or seasonal flavor - blueberry lemon - and it was nothing short of AHMAZING!!!

Super moist and tasty! Even the minis, which is a great way to try multiple flavors. I'm not usually a fan of Red Velvet, but these were delicious.

I was so excited to finally eat a Sprinkles cupcake! There were so many flavors to choose from! I am a huge fan of buttercream icing so I chose the Black and White! The chocolate cake was very moist and tasty! The icing was very delicious too! The cupcake ATM was super fun to watch! Thumbs up for Sprinkles!

We mostly just went here because the idea of getting a cupcake from an ATM is amazing. It was really fun to scroll through and pick out which one you wanted. The cupcakes were pretty good, but I've had better elsewhere. I did like mine, but it wasn't amazing or anything. Not sure if it was just the flavor I... More

You will not really be able to believe how good these are. They are amazing. The icing is awesome. The cake is fresh & moist. The flavors are inventive. They even have doggy cupcakes that we brought home and our pups enjoyed! We didn't use the ATM here like I did in Vegas, but I saw some people using it... More

This was our first time inside an actual Sprinkle establishment. We have bought the cans to do at home before but never fresh from the pros. That being said, they were good, but not that much better than doing them at home which makes the price of them a bit steep. The frosting i thought was a bit lacking as... More

Hard to believe cupcakes can be this good but they are. My only minor complaint was too much icing. The cake itself is fresh, moist, and flavorful even at night. Heard the peanut butter was great but they were out. We had vanilla, dark chocolate and Red Velvet. Highly recommended.

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.
