Their sweets are super tasty. We've had several varieties of truffles, and some cupcakes. The best time to go is in the morning, so you see a bigger variety of options!

We tend to arrive at the shop in the afternoon and find that most products have already been bought up. We have been able, however, to snag some really delicious cookies, cupcakes, and candies. We always look forward to treats from Taste and recommend it.

Im always on the look out for bakeries. I call it 'research' I loved the name of this bakery and couldnt wait to try it Unfortunately it didnt impress me much. Only 2 or 3 very small tables to sit. Minimal variety of cupcakes i visited twice before leaving a review. Each time i think only 4-5 variety of cupcakes.... More

Wonderful bakery with magical decor and scrumptious treats. Cupcakes are the best we've ever had; light, fluffy with not-too-sweet buttercream frosting and candy toppings. We had the peanut butter, cookie dough and cookies and cream. The place smells amazing. It's impossible to walk in and not want to order a dozen things. Friendly staff. Small business.

Everything in the place is perfection. I had a lavender cupcake. It was beyond delicious. Their truffles are perfection, and there are standards and some wonderful variations. The owner is delightful and destined for greatness. No, I don't know her outside the business. I've only seen her at work, but I think supporting her by having a treat is a... More

We could have easily missed this wonderful shop and kept going down 44 but this was an amazing treat. The cupcakes were fantastic but I think the real magic is how absolutely delicious it smells just walking through the door. Get off main st and stop in to spoil yourself here. You won't regret it.

If your going to eat something decadent it needs to be worth the calories and anything from Taste meets that requirement. From melt in your mouth cuffins to an out of this world German Rabbit Cake Taste is incredible. The offerings change daily so you are always surprised with a new favorite. The Taste team are even sweeter than their... More

Any of the baked goods and truffles I have purchased have been delicious. The staff is courteous and cheerful. Wonderful place to pick up a little something for yourself or a bigger something to share.

The cupcakes I bought were overpriced and so bad that I had to throw them out. Too much sugar does not qualify for good taste!

A beautiful, comfy, and hidden gem in the middle of Avon, CT. I feel like the shop needs to be in a more noticeable place because the only way I found about this place was from a friend who found it from Trip Advisor. The cupcakes are probably the best I've had, although they're on the expensive side for a... More
