Met the owner she was adorable. Had the burrito, which was yummy and some of her other pastries. Cute little place, and eat outside to people watch.

Salted caramel macaroons are amazing! We also tried red velvet & vanilla cupcakes, they were good too. Great treat for the sweet lover.

Mountain Cupcakes was a great place to stop after a day of skiing. My kids loved the yellow macaroons and the chocolate-chocolate & German chocolate cupcakes. Service was excellent and the employees (owner?) were happy to be there.
