I almost didn't eat here after reading the reviews! The gluten fee cupcakes are Devine! They make a different gluten fee every day and mine was chocolate, moist and delicious. They also have lattes, and the staff is super sweet and friendly!

We stopped in one afternoon for cupcakes - very tasty! I had carrot cake and daughter had Chocolate Monkey. Just what we needed to fuel us for a few hours!

We bought a dozen cupcakes in a variety of flavors. The staff was great at helping us to decide on which ones we wanted. The flavors were all great. Our whole family really enjoyed them all. Wonderful place to cure a sweet tooth.

We discovered this shop after dinner one night. The store has a variety of typical and unique flavors of cupcakes. They also have a variety of mini cupcakes if you don't want a big one. Inside there is limited seating to eat them immediately or you can have them box them up for later. The other unique quality is that... More

Different flavors every day other than 3 staples of Red Velvet, Choc & Vanilla. Friendly atmosphere and staff. Pricing is on par. They even do events, like my graduation party I ordered 35 mini-cupcakes custom. Were a hit at the party!

We tried the salted caramel chocolate cupcake and it was divine. Very moist, delicious filling and tasty frosting. What more could you ask for? One of the best cupcakes that I have ever eaten.
