Always great cupcakes or at least that's the experience in Boston and Soho New York. Buzzed about visiting the home of it all but didn't get the chance - 45mins was just way too long to wait in line. Wasn't exactly warm weather outside either. Must of gone past the store 3 times between 10am and 3pm and the line... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake! At first I didn't want to eat any sugar but it was worth it! Got their Gluten Free Cupcake and it was perfect (nice to have an option for the gluten free folks)! The pumpkin pie cheesecake was delicious as well!!! My friend that lives down the street said every one she's... More

The chocolate peanut butter was the best cupcake I have ever had in my life. No exaggeration!! The frostings are totally on point.

The cupcakes are tasty and beautifully presented. We queued for about 15 minutes which was better than I expected. We tried red velvet, chocolate ganache and lava fudge. Chocolate ganache wass a bit disappointing and I preferred the other two flavours. Worth dropping in if you don't mind queuing.

Visited this cute little shop, for the first time, as part of a cupcake/dessert tour on Saturday. This was the first stop and quite honestly, I would have been happy to end there. They provided the caramel/apple as a sample. The frosting was creamy and the cake was nice and moist. Everyone in the group agreed, that we needed to... More

I just happened along and found this place. I didn't even know one was here in Boston. I have always wanted to try their cupcakes. And I was not disappointed. I bought two cupcakes--red velvet and apple caramel. I even got a free one in honor of the television premiere, "Madam Secretary." The staff were all friendly.

We got our cupcakes delivered to our home in San Antonio, TX. We had a little issue with the delivery of these cupcakes, so we contacted the shipping department. Andrew Kim contacted us back and he provided us with exceptional customer service. Truly remarkable. I would def recommend this place. They know the true meaning of true customer service and... More

BEST (and only) caramel cheesecake cupcake I have ever had. The cupcake was presented well and was a mix of caramel, cheesecake, and cupcake. The shop had a constant flow of people (mostly women) in and and out purchasing one to a dozen cupcakes at a time. The only complaint is the fact that there is only a table with... More

If you like moist, "just right" size cupcakes that won't make you fat (ok, so i lie) yet are the perfect snack in the middle of the day, or ending to any meal, then Georgetown Cupcakes is the place for you when shopping your way down Newbury.

Pricey but what isn't in Boston. Great place to eat and relax with friends or co-workers. The company has others in major cities around the US so definitely try one!!
