We were underwhelmed with the cupcakes here. The young lady working in the store was very bubbly and friendly, but that didn't make up for the lackluster product. The selection was small, but we did visit in March. The Boston Cream Cupcake was not very good at all, the filling tasted like lemon... read more

These cupcakes are delicious!! The offer different flavors and each one wonderful! The staff was very friendly and patient as we decided which cupcake to get ! The chocolate chip cupcake was amazing. A little expensive... over 3$ per cupcake...but at least it was worth every bite!

All the cupcakes are not only delicious but very creative. They are a little pricey but MASSIVE. It is actually difficult to eat them due to their size. I am not the biggest cupcake fiend in the world, but I can say that I very much enjoyed the Carrot Cake flavor!

My favorite cupcake has always been Chocolate luvs Vanilla (chocolate cake with vanilla frosting) but today, MilkyWay stole first place. The cupcakes are always fresh and the staff is friendly.

Wow! We had chocolate/raspberry cupcakes here. Sinfully delicious. Icing was so tasty and not overly sweet. Cake was moist and full of flavor. I could have tried every flavor!

Amazing cupcakes, I know the craze has died down but if you are in downtown Newport make this stop, amazing combinations and amazing cupcakes, a little on the pricey side but really worth it, friendly staff too.
