Still a favorite should be 5 star. Most selection of cupcakes anywhere locally. Great service, cookies, other choices made right there. We had odd first time happening of eating four 5 star cupcakes in the store. YUM and we took home two, one was perfect, the last one had a tiny bug in it. Know it happens but quality control...

A coworker brought these cupcakes into work and everyone loved them. The flavors are so varied and of the 3 flavors I tried pieces of, all were delicious. Very dense, but very delicious. I would definitely recommended trying at least once if in Princeton.

I really enjoyed the cupcakes I purchased from here. The Boston creme was especially good. My favorite. But agreed with other reviewers that the service is odd. I had a couple in front of me taking very long to order yet 3 or 4 other employees just standing around doing nothing until the line got very long. The cupcakes taste... More

Good selection of cupcakes, cookies and ice cream. I usually stop there for dessert after dinner and to bring cupcakes home.

Best gourmet donuts and ice cream sandwiches. I live in town and stop in every day for one. They specialize in cupcakes for parties.

My wife's birthday is in the summer. I wanted to do something nice, possibly romantic. Then the kids got involved. So instead of achieving my goal (as the currently popular song goes), I got cupcakes and beach chairs by the ocean! Not so bad... the cupcakes were fantastic once we got to the beach. Beautiful day to eat beautiful cupcakes... More

I’ve gotten cupcakes from here a few times. They always have a wide assortment of funky, interesting cupcakes and they have always been universally delicious. A great part of the food scene in Princeton and a great place to grab a quick treat.

with almost two dozen cupcakes to choose from, we could have been here all day. but the smart money was on just choosing one per visit -- and visiting often. excellent cake to frosting ratio.

These are some of the best cupcakes around! There are so many different types, and they have other desserts too! I would definitely bring my kids here, or anyone who is not on a diet. The cupcakes are definitely not your typical flavors, so you will have a lot of choices to choose from.

I love the cupcakes here and have tried many different types. My favorites are the lemon and coconut cupcakes. The frosting is wonderful and the cupcakes are always fresh and moist!
