“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Cupcakes were dry. Salted caramel was salty and dry with very sweet icing. Fillings were just a "dot" of flavoring on the inside of the coconut mango and chocolate peanut butter was almost clay like. Cupcakes were very pricey too! No thank you.

“Best. Cupcake. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Enjoyed the vanilla cupcake with a light coconut vanilla frosting. Wanted to return again simply to grab the flavor experience all over again but never made it back to the store during our visit.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Cupcake flavor options were magnificent. We had four different ones and shared amongst my family. They were all delicious. My daughter dropped her cupcake on floor before she even took a bite. When I went to buy another, they didn't make me pay for it. That was above and beyond!

“Gluten-free red velvet cupcakes easy to love (and share)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Turns out it was a colleague's birthday while we were at our annual conference in San Diego. As Kurt's on a gluten-free diet, when I stopped by this shop to get him some cupcakes, I asked for gluten-free. It was late in the day. No luck. They suggested I return first thing the next morning. When I came by the next day, they had lots of gluten-free, red velvet cupcakes. Took a boxful back to Kurt and he loved them! They were moist, the frosting creamy and a bit sweet (but not too sweet), and of good size for sharing. Maybe their gluten-free version is better.

Friendly service, helpful tip about coming back first thing in the am for gluten-free, easy to walk to if you're staying in the Gaslamp District.
