Cant' seem to walk by this place without picking up a couple of Kookoos (coconut cupcake) to either eat in, or take on the run......highly addictive!

The cake part was great - fresh and tasty. The frosting not so much: really really rich and sort of tasteless. The server also handled the cakes and the money with no gloves or tongs and actually pushed the decoration down into the box to fit - with her bare finger.....

After my dinner I enjoy a walk along the water with my favorite cupcake in hand. All I can tell you is they have something for everyone. My favorite is Chocolate Mint

This place has one thing: cupcakes. But don't think it is a boring store. Their cupcakes come in all sorts of sizes, colors and flavours. They are always baking fresh batches all throughout the day. If you are overwhelmed by the many varieties, you can buy a few different ones on the mini sizes. My favourite ones are the Caramella,... More

Dropped in to get some sweets after dining on Denman street to enjoy while watching fireworks on English Bay. We got the Neapolitan, Red Velvet and Coconut. First off, these were not your average size cupcake, they were large! All three had great flavor, were moist and fresh tasting. The Neapolitan has strawberry icing that was so flavorful. The coconut,... More

My daughters love visiting cupcake shops once in a while, they like pinky icing and pop cake but it's always very sweet and pricy.

I am a huge cupcake fan and look to try new places wherever I travel. Here I had the Caramella and it was the absolute best cupcake I have ever tried. The cake was light and moist and the icing was light and fluffy with delicious caramel inside and topping it off. I highly recommend giving this place a try.

Cute little cupcake shop on Denman. I stopped here on my way to the beach to pick up a sweet treat. They have gluten-free and other such diet-specific options. I chose the "Diva" cupcake and was not disappointed. Yum!

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
