The first time I saw Bloom I thought it was just so cute I had to go in. Imagine my surprise when the cupcakes were vegan and gluten free. I almost walked out fearing they would be expensive and taste like cardboard. I'm glad I stayed. The cupcakes were moist and flavorful. They also had unique flavor combinations that did... More

Great baked goods, but way overpriced. This is middleton, not downtown Chicago. If they lower their prices, I'd give them 4 stars.

Best cupcakes in town. #1 is salted caramel cupcake! Melts in your mouth. #2 is latte. Closed on Mondays, I think...always seen to run into that. Nice to pair with a relaxing visit to the library. Nice staff...good values to the local business.

At our office, we call the owner of Bloom the "Cupcake Fairy." We cannot figure out how she stays so petite with all of the delicious sweetness around her 24/7. Plus, the cupcakes are pretty much magical. Haven't had a disappointing flavor yet. We go to Bloom whenever we need a treat in the office, and my husband I go... More

They do have a wide variety of cupcakes but are priced too high for their size. You can make ones just as good for a fraction of the price.

My Chocolate S'more Brownie was awesome. It was finger lick ‘in good. My wife enjoyed her cupcake as well. And then there was the great cup of French press coffee that we each had. Things may seem pricey until you eat and drink. Add to that the smiling faces on all the friendly people working here added a finishing touch... More

First off, this bake shop oozes with charm and cuteness. It's quite small, but has a lovely shabby-chic ambiance that will lure you in. The kitchen is open and visible from the street so you can see all the baking going on. The workers are obviously dedicated and serious about their craft. There are usually only one or two bakers...

This place trumps ANY of the similar places in NY city hands down....and HOOOOLY GLUTEN FREE WEDDING CAKE, BATMAN!!! Wow. These guys are absolutely the best. They have "regular' treats as well, but for the foood allergy crowd, they're just superpowered baking rock stars.

I have to say, these cupcakes are probably the best I have ever had. The cake is moist, tasty, and not too dense. The frosting, especially the buttercream, is just, asdfghjkl, I can't even describe how sumptuous and delightful it is. I ABSOLUTELY recommend this bake shop. They also sell other baked goods (brownies, whoopie pies, etc.). Another one of... More

Usually stop at Gigi’s for cupcakes but wanted to give this one a chance. Loved the cupcakes. Perfect size and not too much frosting. While they didn’t have as much of a flavor selection as I had hoped, I was happy to splurge on the other treats like a salted caramel brownie and whoopie pie instead. Loved that it was... More
