Stumbled across this place opposite our hotel. After 3 months of travelling, this place was a great find. Truly reminded us of home.
Delicious coffee and yummy cupcakes beautifully displayed on cute little cake stands.
Try the Nutella one..... Amazing!!!
We just need them to open up another branch in England!

I am hardly a cupcake connoisseur. My idea of a good dessert is usually a T-bone steak. At a friend's suggestion, I gave Cakewalk a shot and was very happy with the results. I split two cupcakes - 24 Carrot and Foxy Banofee - and both were terrific iterations on carrot and banofee cake, respectively. As mentioned, I'm not into overly sweet foods and the cupcakes were not too sugary IMO, but just right. Additionally, service was very friendly and prompt. The next time I get a non-T-Bone steak sweet tooth, I'll definitely be back to Cakewalk.

As the title says, its not very good. The cupcakes are fairly bland in regards to flavor, not to mention dry. They are not kept under a covered dish, which leads them to dry out even faster. I was rather disappointed. So far L'usine has the best cupcakes, but the service there is beyond horrible.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for your experience as we try to cater to all of our customers including the local Vietnamese population. We intentionally make our cupcakes with lower sugar content than the typical western cupcakes but still higher sugar content than the local Vietnamese bakeries for 1. the health conscious customer and for 2. the majority of the Vietnamese population that do not like sweet cakes.

Which flavor did you try? Perhaps one of the other cupcakes could be more to your liking. We are always open to recommendations and if there is a demand for sweeter goods, we will consider whipping up a sweeter batch.
