I ordered a delivery for a special someone's birthday and not only did I get word the cupcakes themselves were amazing, they customer service provided through the phone was also amazing from Mike. Love the fact that there are unique flavors and that they rotate. I definitely will be dropping by in person on my next trip to Seattle!! Yum!

I love cupcakes, and this cafe certainly has a great selection. I had the strawberry cheesecake cupcake and it was amazing! We also ordered some macaroons, which were just as amazing as the cupcake (and good macaroons are hard to find!). The flavors of macaroons and cupcakes are unique (I have never seen a birthday cake macaroon before!) and super... More

Delicious cup cakes, beautiful to look at and warm service! The location is very "cool", trendy music. I read a review on Town and Country long ago...the reviewer got it right! Treat yourself!

Some great cup cakes with some really unusual recipes. Try the bacon and jalupino crunch - wow. Call for a coffee and a cake or buy a box - you wont be disappointed.

This was a small cupcake shop with compile tables to sit. They served a variety of baked goods....of course cupcakes, cookies, bars and macarons. I tried the best seller cupcake...maple bacon. The cupcakes are traditional looking but very pretty. The frosting was really creamy but not too sweet....tasted great. They had a variety of macarons flavors too.

Meeting place and first stop of Gourmet Food walking tour and boy, am I glad. I was NOT looking forward to the pancake maple bacon cupcake that we were about to taste and OH. MY. GOD. I think this is the best cupcake I've ever had. I make cupcakes and this is spectacular. It's also the best PANCAKE I've ever... More

I stopped here on a food tour, hosted by Savor Seattle, and returned the next day because we had to try everything they made. They have a cupcake made with bacon flavoring that actually won a "Best Pancake" contest. They sell a caramel drink that is seriously like drinking melted Werthers Originals. Amazing place.

I come here often since it's on the way to work and they have the happy hour during the weekdays. My first two cupcakes (pistachio and bacon) were okay. The cake part was wonderful and full of flavor, but there was too much frosting and it was too buttery. I almost stopped going but then I decided to try a... More

We were walking around Seattle while on vacation and passed this cupcake store and decided to go inside. It was such a wonderful atmosphere and the service was excellent! We ordered a vanilla cupcake and a mint chocolate cupcake. These were incredibly delicious; they were fresh and moist. We also purchased a cupcake latte and a true macchiato. The combination...

Small place, decorated with black and white maps of USA places. Located outside of the buzz and frenzy of Pike St. They prepRe good coffee, delicious macarons and a bacon and pancake muffin to die for.
