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

We make it a habit to find cupcake shops on our travels and have visited some of the best cupcake shops in America. This was a nice little shop in downtown Wilmington with another location near Wrightsville Beach. As some others commented, there is just a small counter to stand at or a bench outside but we didn't stop to... More

There were approximately 10-12 flavours including a vegan choice. Only a park bench outside the place to sit. We got a half dozen cupcakes for 14$ A couple of the varieties were a bit dry and the tops were a bit hard at this 3pm stop. The visit was good, but not a must stop for during our next trip... More

Coastal Cupcakes was featured on a tourist map of Wilmington, so we thought that was a good sign. When we walked in, it was so bare that I could hardly believe my eyes. They had so few cupcakes on display, such a small variety and so few decorations, it was as if they weren't ready for walk-in customers to be... More

I love cupcakes, so every city we visit, we scope out the local cupcakery. The cake had a very nice flavor and airy consistency. They had a nice frosting to cake ratio. The team cheese frosting was okay, but nothing spectacular. I'd try another bakery.

Stopped in for our first visit & my daughter loved the cupcakes we got! That day they were also selling cake pops! The girl working that day was not very helpful & acted annoyed when I asked questions! Prices are not displayed & so we had to ask & the variety of flavors was limited! I thought there would be...
