“Great afternoon treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

And they have sugar free cupcakes now and then, too! Great assortment, great service. The restaurants in the same building (first floor of an office building) offer great choices: Larry's homemade ice cream, Pete's pizza, an Indian restaurant, Hard Times Cafe', BGR burgers. Not a bad one in the bunch. Just remember to finish it all off with a great cupcake from Red Velvet. Yummers!

“a little treat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The cupcakes are tasty, but I really prefer anything except the red velvet. Good, but not that impressed.

“Over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

I heard so much about this place. Over rated. I tried the Choco devil carrot cake and southern belle (red velvet) granted the icing is good since it wasn't too sweet but too creamy. The cakes were not moist at all. Of the 3 I tried I might go back for the carrot cake.

“Go earlier in the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

I had the devil's food cake. The chocolate ganache icing was DIVINE! Highly recommend trying it if you are a chocolate fan. My friend ordered the hazelnut and I tried it. The cake part was a little too nutty for my palette, but again the icing was delicious. We also went late in the day, near their closing time. The cake part was a little dry, but still good. I think if you go earlier in the day, they would be fresher and moister. Want to go back and try the vanilla bean and/or birthday cake (which was sold out by the time we got there - sad face, sad face.).

“Awesome cupcakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

Absolutely thrilled that Red Velvet is now in my neighborhood so I don't have to drive downtown and circle around and around trying to find a parking space in Chinatown.

Love, Love, Love Red Velvet!!!! Cupcakes are great!
