“finger lickin' cupcakes”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

After an afternoon of biking and shopping, I needed a sugar fix. Simply Cupcakes gave me that fix and how! The girl was very welcoming and asked if we'd like her to go over each cupcake. Not being from FL, she had me at the key lime cupcake and it did not disappoint! Yummy! Later in the week, we took my inlaws, visiting Sanibel from Ft. Myers, to Simply Cupcakes and they loved it. Simply try it!

“Good experience”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had wanted to order several mini's, but you must order them in advance. From a business point of view, I can accept that decision. That being said, I would definitely recommend this venue. The key lime cupcake is one of the best cupcakes I have ever had. Because the owner was out of one of the flavors I had been sent to pick up, he threw in an extra cupcake for free. All in all, a good experience and a good product. Worth visiting while on Sanibel.

“Love It!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

My daughter Erica and I spent a week in beautiful Sanibel. We happened upon this adorable little espresso dessert store. We were greeted daily by Dave the owner and barista. The espresso,cappachinos, and lattes were the best we ever had anywhere. The cupcakes were to die for too. We will miss Dave and the cafe until we return next year.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Trying out cupcake places for our wedding dessert. Best one in the area. They were fresh, the owner was helpful and personable, and they also serve coffee (although we did not try the coffee). Interesting flavors that weren't too off-beat. Great frosting. Seats outside in the shade so you can enjoy the weather and your cupcake.

“Delicious cupcakes and exceptional service.”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Before I review the cupcakes let me start by saying how friendly the owner was to us all three times that we visited his store. We tried several flavors and enjoyed them all. I am a huge chocoholic and loved the Death by Chocolate, but would have to say the Key Lime was probably one of the best cupcakes I have ever eaten. We stopped by on our way out if town just to buy a few more Key Lime cupcakes for home. Our daughters also really enjoyed the Red Velvet and Hint of Mint. I am so glad we found this bakery and wish them much success!
