My son is recuperating from surgery and while driving him around he stated he'd like a cupcake. We stopped here and it was a nice, small place. The cupcakes are delicious, very rich and the snickerdoodle is delicious, dense as all get out, but delicious. We had samplings of others, boston cream, butterscotch and mocha as well. The butterscotch was... More

My husband and I decided to try lunch at Mrs. DeLish's Cafe. The selection for the lunch menu was for four different pot pies, including a vegetarian one. They come in different sizes. My husband and I shared one, and shared a premade salad as well. A hearty soup was also one of the choices. The potpies do not skimp... More

What incredible good luck that I happened upon this little cafe while visiting Monterey! I had a salad with a nice variety of greens and vegetables and a perfect balsamic vinaigrette dressing along with the most tasty, savory pot pie I've had in my life! The vegetarian pot pie was chock full of all kinds of vegetables - brussels sprouts,... More

I had heard about Mrs. DeLish from friends who liked the range of cupcakes offered. When I heard that Mrs. DeLish opened up a storefront with seating and had expanded to include pot pies, soup, salads and shepard's pie I thought I'd visit. The pot pies were good, a little expensive given that it was a store-front operation, $8 for... More

The name of the place is says it all. A boutique (and it is no normal patisserie, this place is boutiquey) with cupcake treasures preserved behind a glass display case (just like a jewellers). All you have to decide which one(s) will be your delight! Wonderfully made cupcakes. Ace!

Loved the little store front. Cupcakes are not big but are delicious. Went on my bday. The only thing I would suggest is a small table and c hairs in front for those of us walking.

Mrs. DeLish's is a cupcake sized shop on Lighthouse Avenue in New Monterey filled with delicious, delightful, creative, yummy cupcakes. They are beautifully boxed for transport and always bring smiles when the box is opened.

I love this place and have tried several different cupcakes. I keep coming back for more. My whole family absolutely loves them. We bought a box and ate them all, in minutes. Highly recommend. She is at the farmers market on tue, but also has the full store. The cake is moist and and the frosting matches each flavor perfectly.

I am crazy about cupcakes, and this place does not disappoint. Perfect red velvet cupcake. Moist and scrumptious. As good as Sprinkles!

So glad we stopped here and I picked up two--Oreo cookie and red velvet. They were delish and I ate them both in less than 10 min. Not too sweet and the Oreo had a cookie on top and inside! Red velvet icing was the best I could've eaten a tub of it. I don't eat Sprinkles either but these... More
