Excellent ratios of frosting to cake. Too many places pile less than great frosting on dry cupcakes. The cake is moist with a good crumb and the frosting actually tastes like the flavor described instead of a bag of sugar. Try the weird flavors because they are great.

off the beaten path a bit, but worth the walk. We tried a variety of their items including a cupcake, cookie and pastry. In a great food town, Sugar Bakeshop delivers great desserts

My daughter and I actually went looking for this place just to try the cupcakes. We were not disappointed in the least the cupcakes were super yummy. Take a walk to Sugar, have a cupcake and don't forget to get some to go as well because later that day you will wish you had another.

PB and J cupcake is to die for!!! Not too many people.....I never like the frosting and the cake..I must say the looks arent that impressive. The taste is quite surprising. I love the way the place feels so homey!

Went here just for the homemade popsicles on a hot summer day. They did not disappoint. We had cool blueberry lemonade. The perfect afternoon treat. It was really hard to resist the delicious aroma of those cupcakes, but maybe on the next visit. Location is a little off the beaten path, but just a few blocks off so actually makes... More

Great selection of cupcakes. We tried PB&J, vanilla blueberry, lemond curd and all really good. Easy to find parking and not too crowded.

As gourmet cupcakes go, I don't think I have had better. The peanut butter and jelly cupcake was amazing! The other cupcake options were impressive and delicious - grapefruit raspberry, vanilla blueberry, etc. . . We paid almost $20 for 6 cupcakes but enjoyed every bite. The store is buried in a neighborhood fairly close to King Street with limited... More
