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!

A sign in the shop notes "Winner of the Great Cupcake Bake-off," referring to a Food Network program and, when you taste the cupcake you select, you immediately understand why. Inventive flavors, moist cake surrounding a creamy and tasty filling, topped with a cushion of icing (you WILL get some on your nose and possibly your chin) to top it... More

So many variety of cup cakes - and all of them tasty and fresh. This place serves not only on best cupcakes in the city but I would say that they have one of the best cup cakes in the country!

Don't know if their cupcakes are that good, but we tried some of their ice-cream and it was at least mediocre.
