We were in Portland for the day and stumbled across this bakery. My son was excited that they were advertising that they had been on Cupcake Wars. "We have to check it out!" he said. So we did. Wish we had saved our money. The...More

$16+ for six stale cupcakes. Went in January so it wasn't the busy season. Still paid top dollar. Not a good value.

The cupcakes served are better than average. Both the cake itself and frosting are delicious. When I went today I was a little disappointed by the flavor options and hoped for a little more variety. I purchased as soon as the store opened and expected...More

If you find yourself in Portland, Maine. You need to try the cupcakes. Moist cake and fantastic icing. I honestly can not see how they could be any better. Just the right size so as to not spoil dinner. While your at it. Have two.

Modest sized cupcakes, but big on flavor. The perfect little great at the end of the day. Tried the chocolate with chocolate frosting, and all-vanilla. Sweet, but not too. Good selection of flavors available, so check it out to see what will tickle your palate!

The cupcakes here are pretty good - I've always liked the frosting. Cupcakes aside, they really need to work on their customer service. The girl behind the counter today was rude and nonchalant, and didn't seem to care much about retaining customers or business. She...More

This place has always been boring, as you walked in, but always gave it the benefit of the doubt. Today decided to have a cupcake there, haven't been there in a year, realized the cupcakes seemed smaller, not a big variety. Coffee was lukewarm, tasteless....More
