Friendly staff and a very clean store. Red Velvet is my pick and it is amazing! They offer ice cream and delivery for large orders.

I started going to this place in 2010 and the cupcakes were great, however (for over a year now) the cupcakes have been dry and terrible. Not sure what happened to their quality. It is very disappointing.

I had seen the Groupon raving about the cupcakes, so after eating at Ozzies we walked over. Slow service...how long does it take to serve 3 cupcakes ahead of us and then our two? $3.04 a cupcake so expecting something out of this world. Cake...More
