Having a very sweet tooth Frosted Robin Cupcakes was perfect for me. We bought several to take back to our villa but ate them all before we got home they were so good. Great choice and well priced. Staff friendly and knowledgeable.

I stumbled upon the shop while walking through Seaport. The shop is small so a few people can stand inside at the same time. There is a seating area outside the shop to sit and enjoying your cupcake or you can take it to go in one of their cute boxes. The red velvet cupcake was delicious. I will definitely... More

great but I saw a dead fly in the cupcake shelf and I was a little bit disgusted. But the cupcakes were good

Wanting a break from walking around Seaport Village in San Diego's harbor, I opted for a cuppa and a cupcake. I should have settled for just the coffee. A small variety of cupcakes were offered in the display case ... not all looked fresh. I chose a 'chocolate-mocha' ... ample amount of icing on top hid the tinest little cupcake,... More

Best selection of cupcakes I've seen. Every year during SDCC we get a dozen to split while waiting in line for panels! I've never had one I didn't like and the flavor selection is unique! Still can't find a place near home with as good of cupcakes!!

All the cupcakes we tried are good, but the lavender are fantastic. Such a unique item. Nice place to sit down and enjoy or take home. If you're in Seaport Village I would recommend a stop here.

Their lavender cupcakes are amazing. Not too sweet, just moist enough. I was in heaven. Also there were cool accessories for sale like Hello Kitty and fairy cupcake liners, and hello kitties and fairies attached to toothpicks you can stab into your cupcakes. Nice homey feel to the place. Nicely decorated.

This place had a neat little variety of sweets, cake pops, cake balls, cupcakes, macaroons and maybe more. We had some cake balls and 5 different flavors if macaroons, and it was all yummy! Went back another day to get some more! Try the macaroons if you've never had one, such a delightful treat!
