A local favorite

I love all the unique flavors offered at Coastal Cupcakes. They have 7 regular, every day flavors and then 2-3 flavors of the day. My two favorites/personal recommendations are Chocolate Peanut Butter and Cinnamon Swirl, but there are a lot of other good ones too, like Cheesecake, Pistachio, Boston... read more

I am a fan of cupcake stores but this one was nothing special.. Very limited selection and nothing special for taste.

I love red velvet cupcakes and had hight hopes for this place. But I have had better red velvet (the frosting was lovely! Light and whipped and very cream cheesy. The cake, however, was not very good and was dry. An interesting color with no chocolate flavor.)The shop was cute and the staff was very friendly. My search for the... More

The best cupcakes in Wilmington and a special treat if you are hosting a party. The cake pops are really pretty. I love the gluten free carrot cake. Yum!

Definitely suggest the chocolate cupcake with cream cheese. I was surprised today to see they have cake pops! Now I will never lose weight. :) Seriously though, heavenly desserts ahead if you stop in here!

My husband and I met with the owner and her assistant in May. This was four months before our wedding, excited as ever we thought we picked out our perfect cake as well as mini cupcakes. That day we paid $150 for the "great" cake stand needed and the delivery fee, perfect. I had been exchanging emails with the owner,... More

I am a cupcake lover and Coastal's are the best in town. Believe me, I have tried them all. Coastal has the most amazing icing; there is nothing like it. They always have tempting specials. We love to try anything they are offering, knowing it will be amazing. We had Coastal do the cupcakes for our wedding recently and were... More

All week long we drove by this cute little shop that advertised cupcakes. Finally, on our last full day with an hour before they closed I got to pay them a visit. The cupcakes were very good but stale from sitting out all day. They were also sold out of some of the specialty cupcakes. If you go try to... More
