These cupcakes are off the charts. the flavors are amazing and cake is moist ad delicious. Love the way that they package your treats, its makes you feel fancy and a little less guilty for indulging in dessert before dinner. The salted vanilla caramel and death by chocolate is to die for..

We ended here as part of a tour. I am usually disappointed with fancy desserts and cupcakes. But these were great. Our favorite was twisted love if you want a cupcake that tastes like you made it from home. I also enjoyed the snickers cupcake.

Best tasting cupcakes, I had in a long time. Felt like I was in heaven and it was just across the street from our hotel!

I come to San Diego once every couple of years and never miss getting these cupcakes. These are the best cupcakes I have ever had! Favorite, Salted Caramel Vanilla.

Our cupcakes were old and dried out. They were beautifully decorated and the flavor were excellent but the cake part was dried out appearing to be older than I would expected. We bought the double chocolate and the caramel vanilla. I would recommend if the products were preordered.

All I can say is Samoa cupcake; awesome! A chocolate cake with shredded coconut, filled with a caramel sauce, topped with a caramel buttercream, toasted coconut, and a Samoa cookie. Moist, not overly sweet, and perfect small one-person dessert. They have a specialty cupcake that changes weekly along with their standard cupcakes. I believe the Samoa is one of these.... More

We tried this place while we were waiting for our car to come up from valet across the street. The cup cakes we moist and flavorful with a good classic butter cream. Not the best cupcakes I've ever had but definitely a place I will be returning to.

About the same as most cupcake shops across the country. They look pretty, but just cake and frosting. Nothing special.

Ordered vanilla cupcake with mousse filling. The cupcake looked very nice but was disappointed with the taste. The cake was average and the mousse filling was absent. It must have evaporated or forgot to be added.
