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

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

Service was adequate and atmosphere was nice but the cupcakes were a bit on the stale side and everything in general was grossly overpriced!

A nice cup cake shop if a bit too sweet and expensive. Still, worth a visit and it's right on Main St.

3rd or 4th time here and still no good. Cupcakes were hard as a rock and frosting tasted like they dumped a whole bag of sugar in it. For over $15 for 6, you would think they would taste better. That was our last attempt for sure. I even wonder if they give customers who eat there fresh cupcakes and... More

I so wanted this place to be a new favorite. The cafe is very nice and the hours are great! But I am always greeted by a young lady with a puss...I have tried these cupcakes 3 times hoping it was just a bad batch but find these cupcakes to be tasteless unless you like the overpowering taste of sugar....
