Stopped in to check out this place and to grab a few cupcakes. What a fun stop! We scooped up their mini sampler clear packet and two big cupcakes. The rep at the counter said they do lots of wedding cakes. Delicious treats indeed.

One visit, one chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting. Pleasant atmosphere with slightly feminine decor. Appearance of cupcake was good. The cake was fresh and moist but had no discernable chocolate flavor. The frosting was extremely light in density and sweet but also had no...discernable chocolate flavor. The frosting was so so light the impression it made was that it had been whipped with air to such an extreme level it was mostly air. It tasted sweet and was a nice contrast to the cake which had minimal sweetness. But airiness without any chocolate flavor was disappointing.More

My son & I love Cake Fetish. They make the most creative flavored cupcakes in town! They are super moist, and we love to try the seasonal favorites. They do more than just cupcakes, as well. It is the perfect place to take your little...one, as they have a kid's corner where they can pretend to bake! We will be back soon!More

Cake Fetish is the real deal. From classic favorites, to new and interesting flavor profiles they have it all. Perfect flavor and texture and beautiful to boot. The people here are as excellent as the treats. First began going here when we stumbling upon the...place while shopping for a wedding cake and ending up getting a decorative stand full up cupcakes for our wedding. We have been going ever since. They also have wonderful and safe 'pupcakes' for the dog that we pick up for puppy birthdays and such.More

We had three different cupcakes. The cake part itself, on all three, was very moist and delicious. The icing on one was very hard (I think it must have just come out of a freezer perhaps?), the other two had nice soft icing but strange...flavors. Maybe just my palate but the flavors seemed fake? Like too much fake flavoring? The person who waited on me said they were still trying to figure out to make the iced coffee? I ordered a coffee but asked for it iced. They were using a Kuerig machine which is also a bit strange to me but, perhaps if they get more of a cafe following they will upgrade the coffee. It was a very cute little shop and the staff was very friendly. Maybe just needs to be tweaked a bit. I got the feeling that the storefront wasn't a focus and the catering options were a higher priority. I would definitely go back for a nice afternoon snack. The negatives certainly did not outweigh the positives.More

The expectation for specialty foods, I think, it very high and difficult to achieve. We all bring past experience to the plate. What are we comparing, our imagination of what is ideal, our childhood experience, an item prepared by a Master Baker from Paris,France? My...first visit and I chose a lemon filled cupcake. Why lemon? It is across the board a difficult flavor to master and contrast with and compete in a cake, in my opinion. You have the cake, the filling, and the frosting all competing and each is going to have a different level of the key flavor. Then there are the three textures. How was this one? The flavor overall was good and not bitter. It failed somewhat on texture because the filling was a tad runny, the cake was very fresh to the extent it did not hold it's shape, and the frosting could have been more firm as well. My expectation is it should have held together enough so it could have been picked up and eaten after removing the paper liner. This one had to be eaten with a folk. If you look at the picture on the half exposed cup cake you can see it's structure is a little loose and the filling oozing out. It tastes fine though, as another reviewer mentioned, maybe a bit too sweet. I expect a tart or fruit flavor to not be in competition with sweetness.They had a variety to chose from and a decent place to sit and have coffee, tea, etc. with the cake.More

The Good: friendly staff and tasty cupcakes. The Bad: No low sugar cupcakes, sad. No break in refills of coffee. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

I went to an event last evening where the desserts provided were cupcakes from Cake Fetish. I had a "grasshopper" cupcake and what I believe (based on the decorations) was a "birthday cake" cupcake. Both were absolutely delicious. Due to the different venue, I can't...speak about the bakery itself, but the products from the bakery were much enjoyed by all.More

Small cupcake and coffee place located across from the Sheraton hotel. It's very pink, and the stuffed cupcakes are average compared to Cupcake in Minneapolis. Femme to excess - the kind that angers thinking women. Staff was also passive-agressively rude to anyone who did not...fit her narrow definition of normal. Just go have stuff with chili on it.More
