“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We arrived just before they ran out of cupcakes so we didn't have a wide variety to choose from. But that being said, the seating in the place is extremely limited, the cupcake itself didn't taste like anything I haven't had before and it's very out of the way of downtown Traverse City. Maybe this place would've been better for us on a different day, but on this day it was just 'meh'

“Absolutely fabulous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Simply Cupcakes is a truly amazing bakery. The cupcakes are moist (but they are meant to be eaten within 24 hours - they are fresh cupcakes, not "meant to be purchased 3 days before eating" cupcakes) and the frosting is divine. The cupcake selection is unique and creative, and the staff takes customer service to a new level. You can always expect a friendly smiling face, and if you ask the staff to prepare a particular cupcake for you the next day they will make sure it's on the menu. (To the person who expects a boutique bakery to prepare 36 different cupcake selections every single day?? ... Are you INSANE??) I love Simply Cupcakes and support them as much as I can.

“Very tasty but pricey!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

We had the show time cupcake in honor of the film festival. It was good. Different because it was topped in popcorn. It was dry but good. Cupcake was $2.95 which seemed expensive. But was big enough for 2 ppl to split. Store isn't accessible. It's a large step in front but staff were willing to hold door and help down step when needed. Small seating area inside and out front. No garbages out front.

“GF sweets available”

What a delight for the grandchildren, and for me to have Gluten Free options. The menu varies and the pink take out boxes are great!
