Everyone said the cupcakes were delicious. I can only vouch for the Chocolate Rainforest Crunch ice cream. The single dip was large and cost $3.75 - very worth it. Grab a cone or a dish and head to the end of the street for a beautiful view of the harbor.

If none are out when you arrive, just ask and you can order a gluten free cupcake and come back and pick it up. No place in town is too far away to stop back and pick it up.

We have enjoyed the cupcake sundaes and cupcakes a la mode before, fun and tasty treats but this time I just tried the Sweet and Salty Cupcake, without any extras. It was such a treat, a perfect blend of moist vanilla cake, creamy sweet filling and chocolate frosting, it had just the right amount of salty, sea salt, peanuts and... More

I have been to better tasting and better priced cupcake places. These are a bit over priced and not that fresh.

Nice sized cupcakes with just the right amount of frosting, cute toppings and fun flavors. The Boston Cream Pie was good, as were a few others. One, however, had a hair in the frosting. We noticed it when we left the shop and took it back inside to exchange. He told us it was the chocolate ganache that just appeared... More

What a great little shop. The woman that served us was great - :"you can have it anyway that you like". We had the sweet and salty cupcake as part of a large sundae - that is two scoops of ice cream (two different flavors) with a touch of hot fudge, whipped cream, and two cherries....we split this decadent dessert....

Be sure to try the peanut butter cup cupcake! Sinful, but, oh so good! They also serve Gifford's ice cream! What a great treat!

I was craving lemon, which wasn't a featured flavor that day, but more than made do with the Vanilla Snowball. Perfectly moist and dense cake with the quality buttercream I expect in a designer cake. Hit the spot. And there are enough flavors of ice cream available to sweeten the deal.

Take your time and choose a few to share. We tried a cappuccino, triple chocolate, Boston cream, Vanilla coconut. Boston cream didn't gap have much pudding. Triple chocolate was everyone's favorite, followed by the capuccino. The adventurous can try to eat 4cupcakes, 4 scoops of ice cream and 4 toppings in 4 minutes for a free dessert!

The frosting was buttercream, the cupcakes fluffy, a day like heaven and they don't melt like ice cream. Great spot to sit and enjoy time with family and friends.
