We visit HOC several times a year and are never disappointed. They have a large variety of options. We have tried every flavor and like them all but Boston Cream is a family favorite. The quality is remarkable and the service is always friendly.

They had vegan cupcakes, which was pretty awesome. I am not sure what kind of sugar and stuff they put in them, but it was still nice to have the vegan choice. They were very sweet and delicious.
