Not up to par

I wasn't overly impressed with the quality of their food. I ordered a cake and cupcakes for a party. Upon picking them up I found out all of the cakes were made two days prior which was surprising. The cupcakes and cakes tasted like a box mix with very sugary frosting that simply lacked flavor.

All Things Sweet Shoppe created an array of 12 different types of pies for our wedding this past September. From the first point of contact, they were so wonderful and accommodating, and we were really looking forward to seeing and tasting their creations. Well, let us just say that they blew us away!!! They arrived early and set up a... More

Been there a number of times, plus have had these cupcakes for different large events, its a flip of a coin. Nice selections, though they are not fresh every day. I will continue to support them though sweets are sweets, and there are a number of "sweet" types of shops in Dubuque.

Scrumptious. Their store in Galena has them priced a dollar per cupcake higher. Get them here. I had the richest chocolate one and my husband had the chocolate with sea salt on top. Both were excellent

We stopped here thinking we were getting the best cupcakes around. They did have a nice variety of different cupcakes, but ours weren't as moist as the reviews made them seem. There were many customers here, so it is obviously a popular place. Possibly we just didn't pick the best that day.

I was in Downtown Dubuque this afternoon, with my mom, aunt, and daughter, when we came across this little jem on Bluff Street. All Things Sweet was right up our alley. We decided to pop in and were immediately immersed in the Sweet Shop Cupcake Vibe. Very quaint and inviting. We had a Muddy Farmer, Candied Chocolate Cheesecake, Icing Shot,... More
