i order a cupcake and ice cream and was so big that I could share with my friends. The cupcake was very good. The place was a little crowded but ok.

As we were walking around Newport, my daughter spotted another child with a cupcake and insisted that we find the place that sold cupcakes. Once inside they realized that they could also get ice-cream. My daughter chose a vanilla ice cream sundae and her babysitter chose the "Cupcake Whirlies", its a combination of a cupcake (your choice) and ice cream... More

Best cupcakes hands down. I try cupcakes everywhere I go and I have yet to find one that surpasses Cupcake Charlie's. Red velvet is my favorite, but I've tried a ton of their flavors and they're all out of this world.

Stopped by here while walking around downtown Newport. Had the chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. Very moist and the right amount of sweet. The frosting was good too, just a bit too much. My husband had the carrot cupcake; he said it tasted good.

Awesome cupcakes and priced accordingly? I thought there was a little too much frosting but everyone else in our party enjoyed the extra.

The Boston cream cupcake was better than a slice of Boston cream pie. The chocolate coating on top was delicious and deeply flavorful. The cake was good yellow cake. The custard filling tasted fresh and made from scratch. Whipped cream rosette on top added just the right touch. Selection was a bit limited.

Thank Nancy H
