This is a fun little shop in Belltown that is about a ten to 15 minute walk from Pike Place Market. It is a great little shop (about eight tables) with nice ambiance. The real draw is the 200+ flavors of cupcakes (about 12 to 16 flavors on any given day). One of the owners, Tony, was there when we visited and he was great to talk to and spent a lot of time talking with the kids.

Cupcakes tasted: Pancake and bacon (once you get past the name, it is INCREDIBLY GOOD), the New Yorker (very good), Boston Cream (very good), Red Velvet (good), Belgian chocolate (good), Chocolate Lavendar (very good), vanilla chocolate (okay)

Cost: $3.50/large cupcake

Beware the tours, though! This is a popular stop and is on the Savor Seattle tour, which reserves all but two small tables on the weekends. That makes it a bit challenging to get in and out, and if you want to enjoy your cupcakes there you may have to wait to get a seat.

They also hold cupcake decorating classes three times/week. We haven't tried it yet, but definitely plan to do so!

Started a food tour at The Yellow Leaf and it was terrific. Do yourself a favour and try this place out. FAR FAR better than Cupcake Royale.

Cherry Almond Cupcake was fantastic! The store is small and when we went in most of the tables were reserved for a tour but we found a nice spot in the back corner. The choices were endless. The chocolate malt cupcake was also very delicious and I don't even really like chocolate cake. The cupcakes were just sweet enough without having that super sweet sugar taste.

Hole in the wall cupcakery and coffee shop. The cupcakes were amazing and so was the Mexican hot chocolate. The service and ambiance was a little below average but wouldn't stop me from returning and taking a dozen heavenly cupcakes to go!

What can be better than perfectly delicious cupcakes in an array of tantalizing flavors made with fresh top quality ingredients served fresh with love? Nothing! Except for maybe they're comfy atmosphere, great location, customer service and the fact that the owners live only a block and a half away from this little quaint heavenly gem. Good thing I don't live anywhere close to Yellow Leaf - I'd gain 50 pounds! Go there!!!
