We were told by our waiter (a GREAT waiter - super friendly and helpful) at the Old Port Sea Grill that we must try these cupcakes - that Martha Stewart declared them "the best". What we really wanted was gelato which we got first (amazing at Gelato Fiasco across the street), then we stopped for cupcakes to take home. We... More

A trip to East End Cupcakes is a mini-vacation in cupcake heaven. I've had cupcakes all over the country including all of the "famous" places from television. I can tell you that East End has found the true winning combination of cake and icing. The cake is dense and perfectly seasoned while the icing is sweet without being overpowering. They... More

I was just walking around town one morning and saw the signboard for East End Cupcakes. I had a great cup of hot tea with a wonderful cupcake. It was moist. The frosting was yummy. The service was great and the atmosphere in the shop is wonderful.

Nice little place with a handful of choices. We had a salted caramel chocolate cupcake. Moist and fluffy with the frosting light and delicious. Perfect mid-afternoon snack.

We stopped in Portland on our way home to Maryland after a week in Bar Harbor. It was my daughter's birthday, and even though we were planning a family celebration at a later date, we wanted to at least get her a cupcake to celebrate on her actual birthday. We stopped in here while we were wandering around downtown. It... More

I'm kind of a cupcake connoisseur... I pride myself on trying cupcakes around the nation. I've been to Magnolia in NY, The Cup in Saint Louis, Sprinkles and DC cupcakes in DC, Moxie in New Paltz, NY, Sugar in East Haven (winner of Cupcake Wars) and a little known spot, Mr. D's in Wallingford, CT (try them, they are amazing)....

Every year when we come to Portland we grab some red velvet cupcakes. Cute shop. And we keep coming so that has to say something. Good cream cheese frosting. Not my favorite cupcake place overall but best in Portland and hey I like them.

When my friend was showing me around Old Port (right next to her home town) she insisted that we go and grab a cupcake at East End. The little cupcake shop was very cute inside and had a display of cupcakes at the counter. Although I found the selection somewhat limited, I went with the chocolate cupcake with salted caramel...
