Finally a place that can bake yummy gluten free cupcakes that actually taste good! They did not have a large variety when I stopped in, maybe two flavors? I got the Boston Cream which was amazzzinggg!! Highly recommend!

Daughter not crazy about the peanut butter frosting and I had to pay an extra dollar to cart the thing around in a box instead of a bag. Not impressed.

Yes, cupcakes are evil but oh so delicious. I went here to taste and compare to Newport Sweets and a few other cupcake places in town. Moist, succulent, delicious. My only problem!!!! I went to only buy 1 and left with a dozen! The ones that have a filling are even more incredible. I hate but truly love this place!!!

We stopped in to pick up some cupcakes and although they were very tasty I don't think I will go there again - the ladies behind the counter were extremely rude, impatient and disinterested. One lady behind me walked out because the counter personnel were very short when answering questions concerning the cupcakes. Our server didn't even acknowledge me -... More

We ordered a variety of cupcakes to enjoy after walking around and felt that we needed to be rewarded for all our exercise. We were not disappointed. The cake was perfect and the fillings were plentiful without being overstuffed. A wonderful treat and will definitely go back when we are in the area.

I love cupcakes and I love Cupcake Charlie's! I have been to all four locations and have eaten quite a few cupcakes but have my favorites. I love the lemon drop cupcake with the lemon curd center, and the chocolate overload with the fudge center. The carrot cupcake is really good too. I love that they also have a flavor... More

Really loved this little cup cake shop. It was hard choosing since everything looked so yummy but my pick was perfect. I liked the fact that there was just enough variety that wasn't overwhelming. The cake was moist and the frosting and cream were the perfect sweetness. They also have t-shirts and cute cupcake plush dolls you can purchase as... More

Great cupcakes by the sea. Got a dozen assorted cupcakes here for a neighborhood BBQ and they were a hit. Favorites were peanut butter cup and lemon. Gooey centers - yum!

Tasty cupcakes though some were a little sweeter than I'd have liked, the kids thought they were perfect! Plenty of variety and priced about average.

I love icing; in fact when eating cake I will push the icing into a pile to save it for last. I couldn't eat this icing, it was so sweet and gritty sugary I found it revolting. My husband and I had the peanut butter, and I had the chocolate kind. The cake part was very nice, very moist. But... More
