“Great Coffee & Cupcakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We had dropped in for coffee and some kind of dessert cake.
The best we ever had. Loved the Very Vanilla Bean and Peanut Butter Cup.

“Oh me oh my.....!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

wow, wow, wow, wow....if you in need of a tasty treat, this is the place to stop!! My husband and kids were loving the death by chocolate and I enjoyed the red velvet. The little pink house and inside is so delightful, although small and really cramped once people start to arrive, is a MUST STOP in Gettysburg

“Threw it out”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Never knew there was a cupcake I wouldn't eat! Peanutbutter cup cupcake is what I had. The icing was ok, but the cake tasted burned. Actually threw it out. My daughter and husband had the cookie dough one. They did not eat theirs either. Not worth the long line we had to wait in. Good thing there was a yummy home made ice cream place around the corner!

gettysburgcupcakes, Owner at Gettysburg Cupcake Cafe', responded to this review, May 30, 2013
We have contacted this reviewer to personally apologize for her experience. Our chocolate cake should not taste burnt! Unlike our other cakes, our chocolate does not brown if it is over baked. It is likely that a error in bake time caused a batch of our chocolate cakes to be over done without us catching the problem. This is unacceptable and we have put additional procedures in place to make the possibility of over baking less likely. We apologize to this reviewer and any other customer that received an over baked cupcake.

We encourage our customers to report abnormalities in any of our products and not to just throw it away. We will replace any substandard product or issue a refund. In addition by reporting a substandard product, we can pull it from our inventory to ensure that other customers receive a quality product.

We can guaranty readers of this review that this is not a typical experience at our cafe.

“Not as good as I thought”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

My friend & I saw good reviews and thought we should check it out. We got a vanilla bean cupcake and a chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake. I haven't tasted icing like that before. It was greasy and lacking in flavor. There was no huge difference between the cupcakes and we threw out most of them. The staff was nice. The place was small, but cute. There was a nice seating area outside and if you need it... It seems like they went out of their way to be wheel chair accessible.

“Awesome cupcakes and amazing service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

We were in Gettysburg for an event and the bakery we had hired to do a custom cake cancelled 2 days before the event. We walked into the shop and spoke to the staff including Keith who quickly offered us a solution of 150 custom cupcakes within our budget and decorated in our event colors.

Also, they tasted and looked amazing. We can't thank Gettysburg Cupcake Café for saving the day on our event!
