My girlfriend and I stopped in a quick sweet snack. Had the caramel macchiato cupcake and red velvet. Both delicious and just what we wanted! Service was friendly enough. Not rude like the other reviews say but not personable enough to become a hang out spot. Will go again and again for the tasty cakes!

Reviewed February 24, 2014

We live in Charleston and consider "Cupcake" to be one of the many perks of the city. I get a red velvet "mega" and half a dozen assorted for my teenager's birthday every year and the girls all RAVE. These cupcakes are the best and the staff is great.

“Perfect Treat!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We stopped at Cupcake on a Friday afternoon for a quick treat after a day of shopping. The bakery was cute and the staff were very friendly. We were having a hard time deciding which flavors to order so the server gave us suggesting and descriptions of what was in each treat.

The cupcakes were moist and fresh. The cake to icing ration was a little bit much but I ate every bite!

I'd return again in a heart beat to try other flavors.
