On our family visit we had a Chocolate Overload, an Oreo Delight and the Cupcake of the day - a Boston Creme. Forget eating these neatly, but that is much of the fun, because these were the very best cupcakes we ever had. Skip desert at your Newport dinner and head over to Cupcake Charlie's

My husband had chocolate pb and I had lemon drop. The icing was sweet and delicious. The cake was filled with a lemon pie like filling. It was very good. The cupcakes are large and good for sharing.

Average experience. We went toward the end of the night (after dinner), so I'm sure the cupcakes would have been more fresh if it was earlier... but ours were hard and the icing was frozen. Soft serve ice cream was good, but they only have 3 flavors: vanilla, choclate, and swirl. Overall a nice late-night treat, but probably wouldn't go... More

Best cupcakes I've ever had. I had the chocolate raspberry for dinner one night. My friend had the red velvet with cream cheese frosting and it was delicious. The frosting on mine was on the sweet side but that is how I like it.

I was craving a cupcake and went into the place and at first thought the cupcakes were overpriced, and that they were going to look better than they tasted. I was wrong. The cupcakes tasted heavenly and the frosting had the perfect amount of sweetness. Might go back to newport again just to taste these cupcakes. :)

We spent the day in Newport yesterday and decided to take some cupcakes back to the resort for dessert. I had the chocolate chip which was delicious. Two of my family members had the red velvet which they loved. Yes, they are not cheap, but they are worth it.

Great selection of cupcakes that were either filled or not.The frosting wasn't too sweet and there was a good choice of flavors. I did notice that Fridays are gluten free offerings. Counter help were very pleasant and helpful
