After dinner with my niece, longing for a little after dinner treat, but needed gluten free and not wanting wintertime ice cream. SO HAPPY to find a great bakery that also had gluten-free treats for her! AND the cupcakes were awesome, no settling for second-best just to get gluten free. Just thrilled.

I have had cupcakes everywhere, most notably in San Francisco, with highly rated establishments. This one did not disappoint. Richmond has a winner, wonderful selection, reasonably priced with an accompanying filling, made for a delectable experience. Could have used more icing for the price, but....

I had the pecan pie cupcake and was it great! Husband said his was the best vanilla cupcake he had ever had and I make a pretty darn good cupcake at home.

I went to this shop on a Sunday, when they only had one gluten free flavour (vs two flavours on other days). Still, the cupcakes were fresh and delicious! I had the caramel apple ones, which were apple cupcakes with caramel icing and a caramel drizzle. While they aren't the best GF cupcakes I've had, they were certainly tasty.

Special flavor of the day, fresh, and a little pricey, but well worth it, many to chose from, but go early so they dont run out of some !
