Been going to this little shop almost every week a few years ago and for some reason, could not find the store last year. So much surprised that I happened to see it again a few days back. The cupcakes were not as moist as it used to be and the icing not as good as I remembered --- but it still is good enough as far as I'm concerned!
Still love the RED VELVET as I bought a pack of mini cupcakes.
Enjoyed it to the last bite!

When it was a one location shop it was fantastic. When it franchised it took a turn for the worst.
I came in close to closing one evening and the selection was getting low (which was fine),
I made a choice, the staff dropped that cupcake on the floor (ooops), I made a second choice, as the dropped cupcake was the last of kind. She then dropped the second cupcake. This required a third choice. No apologies. Just giggles. Maybe Im hanging onto this for too long, but I really
don't need a cupcake that badly. There were two staff members on, and clearly neither had been trained correctly.

Visited this store for the first time this weekend and was blown away by how delicious their cupcakes were. We ordered 2 cupcakes and both were amazing. I can see other reviews were negate towards the price but IMHO that is the cost of good quality.

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.

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!
