Lavender is the best

All the cupcakes we tried are good, but the lavender are fantastic. Such a unique item. Nice place to sit down and enjoy or take home. If you're in Seaport Village I would recommend a stop here.

Wanting a break from walking around Seaport Village in San Diego's harbor, I opted for a cuppa and a cupcake. I should have settled for just the coffee. A small variety of cupcakes were offered in the display case ... not all looked fresh. I chose a 'chocolate-mocha' ... ample amount of icing on top hid the tinest little cupcake,... More

Best selection of cupcakes I've seen. Every year during SDCC we get a dozen to split while waiting in line for panels! I've never had one I didn't like and the flavor selection is unique! Still can't find a place near home with as good of cupcakes!!

Their lavender cupcakes are amazing. Not too sweet, just moist enough. I was in heaven. Also there were cool accessories for sale like Hello Kitty and fairy cupcake liners, and hello kitties and fairies attached to toothpicks you can stab into your cupcakes. Nice homey feel to the place. Nicely decorated.

This place had a neat little variety of sweets, cake pops, cake balls, cupcakes, macaroons and maybe more. We had some cake balls and 5 different flavors if macaroons, and it was all yummy! Went back another day to get some more! Try the macaroons if you've never had one, such a delightful treat!

Frosted Robin's are pretty but there isn't anything about them that you can't replicate at home or even do better! I prefer my buttercream icing to theirs and the cake had a cornbread texture, wasn't very moist.

Now this isn't an easy review to do for me. Not very macho for me to write about cupcakes. However, I gotta say, you ladies had it going on. The whole family tried one of the little cupcakes and were instantly impressed. great flavor, great variety, fair price, and pleasant girls behind the counter.

I was here on Christmas day so this may account for the lackluster service. BUT, I had a red velvet cupcake and it was average at best.

First a disclaimer - I wanted ice cream. The cupcakes were very pretty, but I was not impressed. I thought the chocolate cupcake did not have good flavor and was dry. However, the Banana Dark Chocolate Mocha iced was Amazing! So, I highly recommend the drinks. My friend was very happy with the cake bite-lollypop.
