My daughter became a teenager so we got 6 cupcakes to share. All of the flavors were delicious but I especially liked the basil lemon. Great place.

Every time I have company in town, I always make a point to bring them here. The bakery never disappoints. They use a lot of frosting, the cake portion is always moist, and the actual size is huge. I normally eat half then and eat half later. The best part is that they rotate out flavors not only monthly, but... More

I was craving a cupcake but as I am allergic to wheat I find it difficult to find a good tasting cake anywhere. They only have one gluten free a day, but it was amazing. The day i was there is was a vanilla with chocolate chips, Their frosting is super sweet but very creamy.

Excellent gluten free cupcake. Only one type, but I was fine with that. Nice taste, lots of icing. My girls loved the gluten cakes too

Some of the best cupcakes I've had in a while. Delicious frosting and moist cake. I had the black and white cupcake and the praline and cream cupcake. A must stop if you are on King Street!

We were on King Street on our way to dinner and came across this cupcake store. All their cupcakes are half price after 10pm and they close at 11pm. Since we had a birthday girl back at the condo, we bought 16 cupcakes. I, personally, had the strawberry cupcake and vanilla cupcake. Both were good and moist The strawberry cupcake... More

We stopped in for ice cream after dinner. The server was a pleasant young lady. My wife had a small cone which she could not finish and I ordered a small cup of mint chocolate chip and chocolate chip. I usually order two scoops but the portions are very large. Prices are very reasonable for the quality and portion size.

Chocolate cupcake was dry. Would have liked it if it was more moist. I would probably try a different bakery. Not worth the special trip (park and walk) to the place.

We liked this place so much we went back twice for dessert - especially as the flavors change from day to day. There's a large board with the different flavors listed and which day they are available. We probably had 8 different kinds (big enough for sharing) but my favorite was the chocolate salted caramel - yum. Also have cake... More
