That's all there is to it. The staff is great and the cupcakes are amazing. Coffee is also just as good. I plan trips to Gettysburg specifically to visit this cafe! Already looking forward to the next trip. Give the Salted Carmel Cupcake a go, you won't be disappointed.

Thank Gary F

“Adorable cupcake shop with great sweets”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We stopped at the Gettysburg Cupcake Shop for iced tea and cup cakes. This is a small cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. It is mostly painted pink and is very clean. The cup cakes were incredible. They had a limited menu of food, but we will have to go back and try it. We had a red velvet cupcake and a chocolate chip cookie with our iced tea. The baked goods were like little pieces of heaven. A definite stop on your list while visiting the area.

The cupcakes were
better than your local chain bakery or grocery store. They were pricey for the size of the cupcakes. Won't be going back.

We would like to thank the reviewer for their feedback. We noticed a couple of recent reviews that were unhappy about the price of our cupcakes. We respect the reviewers’ opinions but would like to address their concerns.

Our cupcakes are standard sized cupcakes. Most bakeries and cupcake shops feature this sized cupcake. We do use tulip liners for our cupcakes which may make our cupcakes appear smaller since they are not filled to the rim with cake. However, we can assure our customers that there is just as much cake in our cupcakes as any other standard sized cupcake.
Our cupcakes cost $2.75 plus sales tax. We do give a discount on six or more cupcakes. This price is competitive, if not better, than other cupcake shops and bakeries in our area.

Price and size is one thing but value is a different story. Our cupcakes are made from scratch with quality ingredients like fresh fruit, premium chocolate, and pure extracts. Our cupcakes are always baked the same day they are sold. We do offer day old cupcakes but these cupcakes are sold a significant discount.

We hope that readers of this review will stop in and judge for themselves if our cupcakes are worth the price.

“Delicious and Cute”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The cupcakes are delicious and not too big. The people in there were very friendly and packed our cupcakes to go in nice little carriers. Definitely go here for a dessert one night!

“Good food and coffee”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

This cupcake place is great for a quick bite to eat. The ice coffee is great. I had the gourmet grilled cheese it was very good. My sister had the strawberry turkey wrap which she said was great. Nice little place to eat outside too.
