Personally, I don't need my cupcakes to be from the coolest bakery in town, and Sprinkles definitely has that trying-very-hard-to-be-hip feel to it, but the cupcakes are very good. They were briefly out of regular-size cupcakes when we there (after waiting through a long line that stretched out the door), so we tried various mini-cupcakes instead. The red velvet cake was especially good and the mini cakes were the right size for my nephews. I would recommend giving Sprinkles a try for some good cupcakes, but don't wait in too long of a line - they are just cupcakes after all, and going there will not make you cooler.
