“Went back for more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

The cupcakes were very moist and delicious. Nice selection of flavours including chocolate mint, lemon kiss, chocolate, red velvet, and orange. Will definitely go back for more on my next visit to Vancouver. Prices were reasonable when compared to other places.

“One of the worst 2 cupcakes..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

For the place that was the original cupcake company theirs are one of the worst cupcakes that i have ever had. The cupcakes were dry and the icing was way to sweet. On top of that they are not cheap. They are overpriced!

“Expensive cupcakes but a nice treat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in with two other people for a quick cupcake to top off our fabulous lunch. 9 flavors available-small cupcakes were $1.50 and regular size cupcakes were $3.50-perfect amount of frosting distributed-nice little park to sit and eat them outside of the shop.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Absolutely loved our cupcakes! We both had a cupcake named "sweet16" and it was delicious. The icing was sweet and cake was moist. Wish there was a cupcake shop like this in my hometown

“LOVED these cupcakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

I should start out by saying that I am not a huge fan of cupcakes, but these were special. Not too sweet and super moist! We had a hard time choosing they all looked so good. They did have a sampler size box for sale, but it was already put together with one of each cupcake offered. I would have preferred to build my own box of those bite size yummies. Our favorites were the lemon drop and coconut. They were a bit spendy, a box of 6 cost just under $20. But for truly great cupcakes they were worth it.
