We needed a treat after dinner and this hit the spot. We ordered a cupcake, cookie, and brownie sundae. We shared the brownie sundae and we're both so full that we are saving the others for later. Delish!

We stopped in here after dinner. The line was nearly out the door! We ended up with a cupcake sundae which is basically a 1/2 cupcake with a big scoop of ice cream on top. I got the red velvet which was superb!

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...More

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.
