Order the peanut butter nuttella. For 105 peso for a reg to small size. Bit pricey. Taste nothing special. Probably could of bake it myself. Maybe i laid 100 for the box and 5 peso for the cake.!??

I stopped by Cupcakes by Sonja several times in Feb and March of this year. Every cupcake I ate was delicious. What stuck out most though was the service. I was impressed that the attendant actually knew about the ingredients in each cupcake...impressive. My favorites were the carrot cake and peanut butter/chocolate cupcakes. And not only were the cupcakes delicious...they... More

Had to have it cleaned before we could seat ourselves! The earl grey tea is superb, the cupcakes small and pricey! But taste good..I found the chocolate one... More

Used to cupcakes I saw a signboard they have donuts. So with my daughter we bought different kinds. By the way, 4 pcs minimum you can have a boxed purchase. This place however is more of a take away place, since tables are really limited. Good cupcakes and donuts. don't forget to buy water to counteract the sweet aftertaste.

August 2016 marks Sonja's store in BGC 10th year in operation. My favorites are the Red Velvet Vixen and the Carrot Cupcakes. They also provide free drinking water upon request.

A friend recommended me this place and I'm glad I checked it out. I really recommend the red velvet cupcakes. The taste is really nice, I don't like it when the chocolate taste overpowers everything. The cupcakes are fluffy and moist.

Although the quality of the cupcakes has gone down over the years, it is still by far the best cupcakes I have ever had. No matter which country I buy my cupcakes in! Unfortunately had a bad experience the last time I went, as the frosting of my Red Velvet (the best one for sure!) was a bit off. They... More

Try ordering death by chocolate. It is very delicious. Other cupcakes such as peppermint cupcake are also good but my favorite is death by chocolate. The price is a little bit expensive though.

When they opened I used to get the Peppermint and the chocolate was good. Now, my favorite is the vanilla sunshine the pink one because I love pink haha! Before the icing were big and spread evenly onto the cupcake now, they're so tiny and small. I guess they're saving with cost since there are other competitors but I still... More
