August 2016 marks Sonja's store in BGC 10th year in operation. My favorites are the Red Velvet Vixen and the Carrot Cupcakes. They also provide free drinking water upon request.

A friend recommended me this place and I'm glad I checked it out. I really recommend the red velvet cupcakes. The taste is really nice, I don't like it when the chocolate taste overpowers everything. The cupcakes are fluffy and moist.

Although the quality of the cupcakes has gone down over the years, it is still by far the best cupcakes I have ever had. No matter which country I buy my cupcakes in! Unfortunately had a bad experience the last time I went, as the frosting of my Red Velvet (the best one for sure!) was a bit off. They... More

Try ordering death by chocolate. It is very delicious. Other cupcakes such as peppermint cupcake are also good but my favorite is death by chocolate. The price is a little bit expensive though.

When they opened I used to get the Peppermint and the chocolate was good. Now, my favorite is the vanilla sunshine the pink one because I love pink haha! Before the icing were big and spread evenly onto the cupcake now, they're so tiny and small. I guess they're saving with cost since there are other competitors but I still... More

Whenever I reminisce my college days, if there's one thing I'll remember is Sonja's Vanilla Surprise. That's how delicious it is.

The shop is always very busy, staff is efficient. Dont pay attention to the Blackboard menu, as its usually "whatever is in the glass counter" huge range though, complimentry water. Hot coffee not barrista level but ok. best idea - call in advance with an order for pickup, or grab one to take away as you pass. Very very good!

their cupcakes are really pretty and the shop is quite charming (their website is also very adorable). my personal favorite is the strawberries and cream cupcake. the red velvet isn't as good as i hoped it would be but it's still okay.

I always look for a pleasant coffee shop whenever I am with my toddler. So when I went to Mega Fashion Hall, I decided to stay at Cupcakes by Sonja while waiting for my husband to pick us up. The location is very pleasant and it's not crowded (just in front of Zara). Staff are always smiling and very courteous.... More
