They aren't bad cupcakes. They have good flavors. The cupcakes are average size. I feel they are overpriced. Not really worth the cost.

My niece has celiac disease and the gluten free cupcakes at Carytown Cupcakes are her favorite. She likes that they have a seasonal flavor as well as a weekly flavor. When we visit we always bring some back to PA. Their other cupcakes are great as well. My summer favorites are their lemon lovers and hummingbird. They even sell baked... More

They have a fun selection for a reasonable price. I love their style and the way everything tastes. If there were no such things as love handles, I'd eat here much more often.

What do you want in a cupcake? If you want freshness, unique and enjoyable flavor combos and friendly service - make a stop here. I'm a fan of the Lemon curd filled cupcake but also had an Oreo cookie one and that was pretty awesome too! (perfect birthday treat!)

My daughter and I stepped into Carytown Cupcakes expecting deliciousness. Looking at the cupcake varieties, I was put off by the amount of boozy cakes they serve. Whiskey sour, raspberry stout, and about 8 other alcoholic cakes. Moving over to the regular cake window, varieties like carrot, Oreo peanut butter, red velvet, lemon lover, and a few others. I would... More

Thank you so much for supporting our small business! I'm so glad that your daughter enjoyed our Red Velvet Cupcake! In response to your concern about alcohol in our cupcakes, I think you may have been confused by the drink pairing suggestions that we have below each flavor. We only have 3 cupcakes on the menu that contain alcohol, the... More

My daughter is a cupcake lover. We went to Richmond for the weekend and went to the bakery twice. The flavors are creative, the shop is super clean, and servers were delightful. Adorable!
