Went to Newport RI for a few hours and was planning to have lunch there. We couldn't settle on a place until we passed Cupcake Charlie's. Once we looked in the window it was a done deal! It was so good that if we didn't have to be somewhere else, we would have stayed for dinner. By far, the freshest... More

Stopped by around 8:30 pm and not many cupcakes left. I got the Carrot Cake one and the chocolate and Vanilla one. Moist and icing was delicious. Better to go in earlier as later in eve. not many left. Would go again.

The cupcakes were beautiful and they had great flavor choices but I wish the cake itself was not so dry! The frosting was so good and the fillings were great too and they just looked so delicious but the cake itself needed to be more moist. I have found this to be the case at other "fancy" cupcake shops I've... More

I walked by and was curious - so glad I stopped!! We bought a little bit of everything! The ice cream was SO creamy and delicious!! One of the best soft serves I've had. Also bought 4 different cupcakes - PB/chocolate, hostess, mint and boston creme. All heavenly!

We did not have the cupcakes, but the soft ice cream is among the best I ever had, and I am an ice cream nut!! It is very creamy and should not be missed.

I don't like to use the word 'okay' to describe a dessert, but this warranted it. The cupcakes were average. Lots of sugar and overly sweet. I know cupcakes are supposed to be sweet but it was a bit much. They looked very pretty and enticing though. I'm glad I tried it but there's not much competition in the cupcake... More

Shared three different kinds, none were spectacular. I would not recommend the place. The lemon cupcake barely tasted lemony.

Stopped into Cupcake Charlie's while walking around Brick Market Place. They had a wide variety of cupcakes as well as cupcake sundaes, cookies and ice cream. We purchased the Hostess with the mostess, funfetti and the chocolate chip cookie cupcake. I'm always leery to try new cupcake for fear they may be dry but all the cupcakes were not only... More
