“Overpriced”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stopped in for cupcakes for a friend's birthday party. It is in a great location and is fun to drop in after eating dinner, shopping or visiting the pier. BUT, the baked goods are very expensive and are of the same caliber/quality you can get at a good grocery store bakery. The frosting was unremarkable but the selection/variety of cupcakes was good. Cupcakes were priced at $2 each. The crowd in the store was between 12-20 and it appears to be a favorite hangout for that age group. Candy selection had my kids drooling and the staff were welcoming and friendly. They have evening hours for the after dinner crowd seeking dessert and ice cream

“popular with tourists - way overpriced”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

When a sweet shop sells for example a pack of junior mints for 25% more than the movies and 300% more than Kmart, you know you are being had.
