Sadly, when you are on the same street as Sweet Cupcakes, a place that's dimly lit with a snooty person serving you doesn't quite hit the spot. I'm sure if the attitude improved, then the taste of the desserts might too.

We walked by and were interested in the window displays and decor. We went to open the door and it was locked with a sign on the door that said they would be back shortly. We waited twenty minutes, don't ask why, and someone returned....More

Before traveling to Boston, I scouted out foodie places to visit. CAKEOLOGY was on CUPCAKE WARS twice and lives up to everything I expected. Ironically, it was only a block from my hotel and across the street from a MEGA Walgreens! We went back several...More

Ordered 5 mini cupcakes to go. I ate them an hour later and they were dry and all the frosting tasted the same. The only good thing about the purchase was the cute box they put the cupcakes in...besides that, we won't be back.

Stumbled upon this store while eating at Sam Lagrassa. The red velvet cupcakes is actually very good; dense and moist. Unfortunately it was topped with cake frosting which made it very sweet instead of cream cheese. The German chocolate and PB&J was also good but...More

Tiny shop right across from Sam Lagrassa. Nice sweet ending to our lunch. Lovely presentation of adorable cupcakes. The Boston Creme cupcake was very special. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The Red Velvet was nothing out of the ordinary though. Cute to go boxes.

I purchased cupcakes for my husband, 2 of the types being Red Velvet and Carrot Cake. I was led to believe that both types had Cream Cheese frosting on them, but ALL 4 had regular cake frosting. Such a disappointment! And I made the mistake...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
