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.

My friends and I stopped here to indulge, and everyone left happy. They had a very fun selection of cupcakes, as well as the old favorites. On this particular trip, we tried the Elvis (peanut butter and banana) topped with bacon, triple chocolate, chocolate oreo, and chocolate macaroon. The cake was moist and tasty, but the star is the frosting-... More

We always stop here on day one so we have dessert for a few days (buy 5 cupcakes get one free). Now these are not necessarily a bargain but they are tasty and they have a creative variety of flavors.

We each enjoyed a cupcake and tea and coffee. They also serve cupcakes a la mode and make sundaes out of them, too. Something for everyone. Quite impressive variety of cupcakes, given the current cupcake craze.

Ok, I will say one thing, the prices are high, but number 1: you know they are gonna be. Number 2: You are on Bearskin Neck in Rockport Mass, it's gonna be a little more, and Number 3: You won't mind forking over the cash cause its damn good. Ok, Probably gushing a little, it's just cupcakes, but these cupcakes... More
