I've visited many Sprinkles locations throughout the country so had to visit in La Jolla. The shop itself is very small but the icing shot and cupcakes delivered!

We stumbled upon this place one evening and stopped in to satisfy our sweet tooth which this place more than delivers on that. Very tasty cupcakes, cookie and ice cream with helpful (and patient) staff to answer your questions. Great place to go if you are looking for dessert.

My daughter is a baker who loves Cupcake Wars. This was a dream for her. We tried the chocolate, vanilla, lemon blueberry and dark chocolate cupcakes. I am not a lemon person and those were my favorite by far. Amazing cupcakes. The shop is small and pristine. Staff were super friendly.

Do you like cupcakes? If you said yes, then you want to try these. Rich, moist, tasty. I loved the lemon coconut and the dark chocolate. My friend liked the red velvet and the black and white.

My wife loves this place. Whenever we are in the area we need to stop. The staff is very polite and helpful. The cupcakes are pretty good. I prefer the coconut and the lemon. Sometimes there is a line, but it usually moves pretty fast.

I was traveling on business with a few other colleagues for the week. One of them is obsessed with Sprinkles but it was her birthday later in the week and we arranged for her to get a dozen for her birthday. However, she wanted to go there sooner and we had to keep her from going. So, I stopped in... More

Im giving this a 4 star review based off the cinnamon cupcake I got, which was very good and tasted like a moist snickerdoodle cookie. Mmm. But my wife and friends wife got the sprinkle cupcake and both mentioned how dry it was in the middle. One of them even mentioned that there was very little frosting on top. Hmm.... More

Super good cupcakes! Had the dark chocolate and everything about it was delicious! They have quite a variety of flavors to choose from. They have some sort of card if you buy so many but we don't live nearby otherwise we would be frequent shoppers.

It was so nice to find out that this is not an overhyped cupcake place. I have been disappointed with others in the past, but the cupcakes from Sprinkles are rich and creamy and wonderful.
