Stopped here after dinner because I had a sweet tooth. Cupcakes were different from what I'm used to, but they still satisfied my sweet tooth. It's worth a stop.

I've never met a cupcake I didn't like. I had the red velvet - it was OK. Over baked, dry and overpriced. The shop has a very limited selection and is small.

This is a small quaint shop. We went later in the evening closer to closing so the selection was limited. We choose the red velvet cupcake. The frosting was good, the actual cake was ok.

No frills and a small shop, but the quality of the cupcakes was great! Super moist and just the right amount of sweetness to the frosting.

We ordered half dozen to go and to my surprise the icing was such a delight. No sign of fattening just deliciousness.

They have a selection of about 10 flavors, some very interesting like the oatmeal one and then standards like peanut butter, red velvet, and vanilla, etc. They were good little cupcakes, but nothing amazing. I was really looking forward to the red velvet, since that...More

If you're in the mood for a cupcake, stop in and grab one. It's a pretty small shop but they do a nice job.

We hit this place to take a cupcake back to the hotel after dinner. We were at the end of the night so there wasn't a ton to choose from but enough. I got the red velvet cupcake and it was excellent. They are small...More
