I saw that they had macaroons and had to get them. Also got two cupcakes. One word....delicious. Must try the pancake and bacon cupcake!

They don't have a very big selection of cupcakes and they were pricey at $4 per cupcake. They were okay, nothing amazing. The service was good and the shop was cute but I don't think I'll go back, the surrounding competition has better (and more normal popular flavors).

Sadly the cupcake I tried here was a disappointment. That's not to say I wouldn't try their macaron or cookies though

This cupcake was delicious! The frosting is so light and full of flavor! I only tried the red velvet turtle cupcake. My cousin had the macaroons and loved them, they had a ton of different flavors. They do close at 6pm so get there early for the best selection.

So, hands down, best cupcakes ever. The peanut butter and chocolate "cuppie" is half cupcake half cookie and ALL awesome! It's a little shop with big flavor. I would have taken a picture of my cupcakes, but they fell in my mouth too fast. This place rocks the cupcakes world.

When you first walk in you get a comfortable relaxing atmosphere. Really neat wooden cutting boards in the shape of the different states are on the wall. Then as you walk towards the counter, you feast your eyes on the cupcakes. The biggest problem? What to choose. Lots of choices and they all look so delicious, it's hard to limit... More

I know there are plenty of bakeries, shops, local chains, and super sized wedding cake places that throw their names around- even shove mini sized morsels of samples in your face as you wander around Seattle. They're great. They're completely fine. But, if you want perfection, that cupcake you wish you could be buried inside of so you could eat... More

What a lovely place! The assortment of cup cakes were amazing. Coffee and tea were available. Not only can you get various sizes of cupcakes but cakes were available. While we were there a lady came in to pick up a small appropriately sized cake for her two year old's birthday. Just perfect. It is very small, limited seating inside... More

I for one am not a sweets person, however the Yellow Leaf tempts me. They have an array of cupcakes that are not your usual run of the mill Betty Crocker type. The flavors are wonderful, this trip I fell in love with the Boston Cream Pie cupcake. Yum-O!!!! You can eat in or take go.
