“Cute shop and tasty cupcakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I tried this cupcake shop with some friends. The cupcakes are delicious! I had the hot cocoa cupcake. It tasted like an actual hot chocolate! The cake was decorated like a little cup of cocoa..with the buttercream frosting, topped with marshmallows and cocoa powder and a chocolate 'straw'. The cake was moist and the top part (above the cup thing) had a cookie texture to it.
The shop atmosphere was great! I loved the decor and it was quiet. The staff was friendly. Definitely going back, perhaps for a Valentines Day dessert :)

“Sweet little shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I've been to this shop often. The cupcakes are delicious and beautifully decorated. Sometimes I buy just one for a friend who needs a smile. A small plastic "happy birthday" decoration is available for free.

“Exceptional cupcake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Located across from Union Station, their chocolate mint cupcake is excellent! The peppermint is present, but not overpowering the rich cocoa taste of the chocolate part. The frosting is a bit sweet and too much of it, but not sugar-bomb and not enough to take away from the cupcake itself. At $3 per cupcake, it isn't a bargain but it IS worth having the treat!
