Delicious and cutesy

Cupcakes were quite good, and they had all sorts of inventive types, which I really liked. You can tell that they are having fun with their business. My only dock on it is that the cashier seemed to be rather snobby about their food. Lighten up - it's cupcakes! Other than that, good times. Would go... read more

A friend and I made an unplanned stop after visiting Vidler's next door. They certainly have a great location! We both chose the Chocolate Explosion and had them packed to go, so I can't really speak to the decor or service. That evening when I had a bite of the cupcake I was so disappointed. The cake was very heavy,... More

They have a great atmosphere and lovely staff, but as a baker myself I just don't find anything overly outstanding about the cupcakes. I've tried s few different flavors and average it how I'd describe them all.

Made a stop at Firefly as part of the East Aurora Buffalo Bites Tour. I had the red velvet cupcake...and it was delicious. My sister had a majorly good chocolate cupcake...she let me have a bite. The display case was full of several flavors that are worth a trip back many times to try...and I will.

WE decided to stroll down from "Theas", the Ethiopian restaurant down the street and get our dessert to go. We got three atomic cup cakes and made a perfect ending to the evening.

Great place to stop for a pick me up or a special occasion! I love the cupcakes and they wrap them up so nicely when they are a gift! Lots of options if you need GF.

I have purchased from Firefly several times. When I want to splurge, I like to do so with quality. Not overly impressed the last couple of times, but like to keep my business local. Honestly, this time the cupcakes, vanilla bean and chocolate explosion, were stale, crumbly and not flavorful. Disappointed to say the least. It was a holiday Saturday,... More

I had never been here before, but ordered 2 dozen well in advance for a special occasion based on some reviews and pictures of their work. The flavors I chose were their house selections, but I had a custom fondant topper. Their presentation and packaging is excellent. However, I agree with other reviewers, it was obvious the cupcakes were not... More

Beautiful display and fantastic customer service especially for my unusual request for delivery without notice. It's my new 'go-to' venue for special surprise treats to be delivered in the Buffalo region. Thanks Firefly!

My second trip to this cupcake venue. I love peanut butter and both times opted for their chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting. Both times the cupcake was slightly dry and the frosting hard. The other cupcakes were all chocolate which my guests said were yummy. My friendly order taker appeared to be new since she asked another woman in... More
