We were passing by and we stopped for a quick treat. I chose the red velvet cupcake. Cost me 4.15$, which is on the expensive side. Usually, cupcake shops are closer to the 3.50$. The red velvet wasn't red velvet. It was just a redish...More

My friend and I were here pretty close to closing time. They had a good assortment of cupcakes, at the waitress's recommendation I had the tres leche. It was good, nice and moist. They had some interesting looking cocktails that I didn't get to try....More

Stopped in because we were walking by. One counter person, the prices were steep and the cakes were small in size. The clerk was waiting on a customer, did not even get a hello or acknowledgement that we were there. Poor customer service=NoSale!

My friend and I stopped in and tried three different cupcakes. The buttercream icing on each of them was silky smooth and just sweet enough. The chocolate, peanut butter/chocolate chip and red velvet cupcakes make stopping in for a taste worthwhile.

This is a cute little shop with great cupcakes. The cupcakes themselves are not overly sweet, I love this. Great flavor profiles and iced pretty to match the flavor. Decent selection to choose from. Workers very informative about their product.

I've been here once and will not be returning. The cupcakes are overpriced and chalky. I needed to drink water with every bite because they tasted like they'd been sitting on a counter for a week.

We checked out The Cupcake Lounge one day this summer when we were running early for an escape room at Jigsaw Escapes. It's located just across the street from one of City of Ottawa parking structures in the Byward Market. My daughter loves cupcakes and...More
