This is a cute little shop with yummy cupcakes. Mine was Guiness-flavored and was a balance of heavy cake with sweet, creamy frosting. It was a good combination of both taste and texture. The coffee was acceptable but not exceptional. The store is truly tiny...More

It was a nice cupcake shop,. A few tables and plenty of nice service. The selection was good, and the prices were pretty decent. Too bad they ran out of gluten free options early.

LOVE the red velvet - not too much icing and not too sweet. Ordered mini red velvet cupcakes for the family and it was a hit.

We stopped here after dinner for our sweet tooth. We loved the chocolate peanut butter cupcake, the icing was smooth & absolutely delicious as well as the chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing. FYI there is only one table/chairs in the shop.

I never jumped on the cupcake craze but I did stop in to this little place for a little treat. Only a dozen or so flavors of cupcakes are made and it IS about quality, not quantity. A regular size moist, made from scratch cupcake...More
