We received a card for a free cupcake so we headed over to check it out. My older daughter had the vegan peanut butter and my other daughter had the vanilla sprinkle. They went crazy for their yummy treats! They are super affordable at just $2 each. The decor is also fun and light hearted!

Scratch has certainly earned their excellent reputation. If you want to make someone feel special, take them a Scratch cupcake! (special boxes are provided.) So many extravagant varieties from which to choose!

I can't say enough about how awesome these cupcakes are. But the service is also great. The last time I was there a young man with a beard helped me and he was very patient and helpful while I debated over the many yummy options to pick from. I Will be back for sure. Jeff.

Scratch Cupcakery offers a variety of cupcakes, Wedding Day is one of my favorites, although at my age, the frosting can be a little rich, the cake itself is wonderful!

Selection of drinks and bakery items-so many! Guess you should just forget about "no sugar today". Settled for 3 smoothies and 1 tiny cupcake. Not much left, from a $20 bill! Need to try the coffee next time, when it isn't summer!

I am not a cupcake person, I ate too many cupcakes with Crisco flavored frosting in my youth, so typically I am not tempted. These cupcakes, while not plain, aren't the overly decorated, frilly type , with an odd taste. The wedding cake cupcake distilled the luscious essence of what one would think of for a white wedding cake, the... More

I had the Wedding Cake Cupcake - $2, great value. The shop was clean, inviting, and just the smell was worth $2! The keepers were very helpful.

The brownie í had lasted for three snack times! Drinks are very decently priced as well. The downtown shop is bright and cheery and the staff is super sweet and... More
