I love their Cinnamon Roast Rum Macaroons, banana bread and when I want to really indulge, the biscuit and gravy breakfast burrito!!! If you're going to order a burrito, either call ahead or be prepared to wait about 10-15 minutes because these homemade burritos are made with love and that takes time.

The cupcakes were awful, extremely dry, lacking any flavor. The owner was rude and wearing a revealing tank top that was see-through and allowed her cleavage to fallout inappropriately. I did not expect this from a shop that outwardly appears to be family-friendly. She kept us in the shop longer than we would have liked by talking about her knee... More

We stopped by because we had a sweet tooth. I bought a tiramisu cupcake I saw in the display case. It cost $7 and wasn't that large or great. Cake part was dry -- the icing was just a homemade whipped cream. Nothing to brag about.

Maybe my expectations were to high. When I saw the sign and the cute entrance, I pictured a variety of cupcakes to chose from, and some beautiful homemade goodness. They had three kinds to chose from (vanilla, chocolate and oreo). I was looking to buy a dozen, and a dozen were not available. I did, however, purchase one of their... More

The cupcakes were good, just the cost for each of them was, in my opinion, way out of line even by Vail standards. And, with there size, the cost of two cupcakes per person times two people, you could have actually had a decent lunch most places outside of Vail

Coconut Macaroons are awesome. I only purchased 2 of them and when I got home to Missouri, was kicking myself for not buying more. My wife bought several French macaroons of various flavor sand loved them. We gave some as gifts and rave reviews from all. We will be back. Hopefully the online ordering will get up and running soon.

It is a bad recipe. Poor service and poor product. The staff while pleasant, was not going to go out of there way to make up for lack of product and lack of essentials such as bags to go. Don't waste your time on these calories.

Met the owner she was adorable. Had the burrito, which was yummy and some of her other pastries. Cute little place, and eat outside to people watch.

Mountain Cupcakes had both their cupcakes and their french macarons! To die for. The flavors were amazing and the culinary presence was outstanding for the event!

This tiny business on the west end of town serves delicious coffee, cupcakes and breakfast sandwiches ... all with a smile. We ordered a cupcake and coffee and sat outside to enjoy the weather and the view of Vail.
