We had some Marble Slab ice cream earlier but could not resist passing up an opportunity to buy some cupcakes. There were a range of flavours, all looked enticing and we just had to buy some. They were delicious, expensive but a guilty pleasure. A good jb we shared he ice cream earlier.

Absolutely delicious cupcakes and great staff. It was a bit spendy and I'm not sure that I would go on the regular, but it was a nice little treat!

You must try this place, if you have a hankering for something sweet and you're in the Davie/Denman Area. The cupcakes are all freshly made and as everyone knows,cupcakes are all about the icing. In my books, it is! I love Vanilla cake and vanilla icing and the cupcake i had was to die for!! Just what I needed after... More

We live close to this shop and have gone by many times thinking how tempting the cupcakes looked. Today was my son's 5th birthday so we decide the splurge and grab half a dozen different flavours for a treat. I was so disappointed in each and every flavour we tried. I LOVE cupcakes and never thought I would meet one... More

These cupcakes are on the ridiculous side of sweet... way too rich for my taste buds. The frosting tastes like it's 90% butter.

There is a great choice of cupcakes but they are very expensive. The shop is quite small but very clean and the staff are very friendly

After a long walk from our apartment on Beach Avenue we stumbled at this cupcakes' shop on Denman st. Bought one chocolate and one mint condition cupcakes to enjoy after dinner at our apartment. They were fresh and very good. Comparable in quality to what we are used to have back home (at Alphaville, Perugia, Italy). If you're in the... More

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.
