I've had cupcakes froms Susie's a few times now, and they have been good, but I've had much better from other places. Normally there are about 8-10 different flavours to choose from (depends on time of day and how many they have already sold) but most of the flavour comes from their icing and not the cupcake itself. It would... More

Whether you like cupcakes or not, you need to go at least once. The best part about this store is the story behind it. Hard work pays off. Go support local business' !

We ordered 6 birthday cupcakes and 6 assorted cupcakes for a birthday celebration. Everyone loved the selection, flavours, taste, everything about them. Would highly recommend Susie's Shortbreads. Can wait to try more of their products.

The cupcakes at Susie Shortbreads are amazing! I highly recommend the back and white and the Susie classic. There are a great for special occasions dessert! They are a little pricey but worth every penny! Don't be disappointed they sell out all the time so make sure you call and order ahead to get exactly what you want.

I just had the opportunity to try Susie's cupcakes yesterday and I must say they are the best cupcakes I have ever tasted. I am anxious now to try the cookies.

If you haven't tried Suzie's cupcakes.. GO now! Everything else in the store is great as well, but the cupcakes put all others to shame. They are soft, fresh, and loaded with icing. but that's what cupcakes are all about.. indulging! They have a variety of flavours, and I haven't tried one that I have not liked. I see they... More

Susie's is a great success story. They do make good cupcakes and excellent shortbread cookies. There is now a lot of competition in cupcake bakeries. I have tried several, I would rate Susie's about 8 out of 10.

We had a selection of Susie's cupcakes. Lot's of varieties to choose from, all very sweet, moist and delicious. Lots of other treats as well (cookies, gelato, cheesecakes and truffles etc.) When you need a treat this is the place to go. Will be returning soon.

Thank Edwin F
