“Excellent Cupcakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

First time to Newbury St. and I've heard a lot of good things about this place, so decided to stop in. Lots of flavors to choose from and, although crowded, the line moves fast. I tried the peanut butter fudge and the mint chip cookies n cream flavors. Both were amazing! I love cupcakes and most places I've been the frosting is too sweet and doesn't have much flavor (besides sugar). These cupcakes were rich and had a ton of flavor. The mint cookies n cream was especially good. The only thing is I wish they had more than 2 tables inside.

“Excellent cupcakes, worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Georgetown Cupcake doesn't disappoint at any location! The line here was not nearly as long as I expected (less than 15 minutes) & the cupcakes were amazing! The chocolate and vanilla is my favorite. Treat yourself & enjoy these cupcakes!

“Great cupcakes; must stop in while nearby!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Shopping on Newbury Street in Boston and recommend stopping in.

Short line, but we were in/out with efficient service process. Although there are a few seats, this us more a purchase and eat on the go place... our cupcakes did not make it down the block before they were eaten.

My favorite was the strawberry cupcake. Moist and sweet.

*** when you are already full, and then eat a cupcake just to try it, and THEN want MORE several minutes later.....= a great cupcake treat.

“A must stop for dessert lovers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

First be warned the place is small and the line is often out the door. You can get by this by ordering online ahead of time then walking right up to the counter. They sell cupcakes and a few types of coffees and bottled water. The cupcakes cost $2.75 each, or you can buy in bulk. I got 6 for $15 . My favorite is Red Velvet and Banana split. It was a perfect birthday treat

“A must stop for dessert lovers!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

If you follow them on Facebook they have a free flavor of the day for first 100. We were lucky to find no line on Sunday when we went. Cupcakes were super yummy and went well with some ice cold milk. The store isn't well marked, we walked right by so be sure to keep your eye out for it. Staff was okay but could have been abit more friendly and helpful, esespecially when spending that kind of money on a cupcake.
