Whenever I visit a place for a cream tea I always check the scones are homemade. I fell upon cupcakes by accident whilst visiting Paignton . I must say not only were scones homemade they were fresh with loads of Jam and Cream. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend cupcake for cream tea. Also very very reasonably priced.

We were walking around Paignton and the name caught our eye maybe just a quick coffee?, but when we saw the range of goodies that changed great range on offer and lovely friendly people. Well done

Each time we visit Paighton (myself, husband & two children) we're sure to visit this place. We have a lovely breakfast, decent coffee and nothing's too much trouble in terms of mixing up the set meal plans. The cafe is bright, clean, friendly , choice of food is great and prepared lovely.

Cupcake is a lovely little place, I recommend the eggs benedict! They get very busy so you do have to wait while your food is prepared, but it is worth the wait. Everyone who works there is lovely, works hard, and has friendly banter with the customers. I couldn't praise it more.

The service... More
