It's a fun place to visit specially with the kids they love the cupcakes. There was a long line out the door but it went down pretty fast what I notice the line was because people when they get to the counter can't decide on what they want, but the service is good and fast

I don't know what it is about cupcakes that just rock my world. I mean it's essentially flour, eggs, and sugar (yes I know there's more to it than just those things). But when you bite into one of these darling little treats, it melts in your mouth and takes you to your happy place. A few obvious facts: -... More

The line is down the block. And it is for cupcakes. IF you can, place an order in advance, and skip the line to pick up at the time you designate. People in line won't like seeing you head in - but it has taken me less that 5 minutes to pick up our order - ready and waiting and... More

Long line, but worth the wait. It is a typical fancy cupcake. I love cupcakes so worth it for me. Great to go to say you conquered.

simply delish!! I happened to be in Georgetown early one Friday morning, right before they opened, and only a few people were in line. I joined the line, which moved at a decent pace. I was able to score one of the free #secretflavor cupcakes, which that day was chocolate ganache. My other 3 choices were the cherry cheesecake, lemon... More

Definitely (as others have said) not service with a smile. More like Big Brother watching for errant smiling employees on an assembly line. Already knew cupcakes were pricey ($18+ for six), but on this particular day, no drinks could be sold either, so that was fun. Nothing like eating a cupcake dry. The only reason this gets a '3' rating... More

The cupcakes are good, I would give them that. However, the people working at Georgetown Cupcake should be smiling. It's a Cupcake Place, people should be happy when they are there. We were in line for about 30 minutes. When we got there, and eventually reached the cashier to order, the girl working there was frowning, and generally not happy.... More

The ladies at the register were not very pleasant to customers, while I understand this is a busy place, a simple how can I help you would be a great way to address a customer not a yes when you approach. The cupcakes on the other hand were amazing even if they did turn over in the container from not... More

Walked by this morning thinking "who stands in line for a cupcake?" 8 hours later the line's still there. I'm not in a rush, got my book with me.. Get in the line folks :) so worth it. They were all good, but the lemon cheesecake was the absolute best.
