Love their cupcakes! Delicious, fresh, beautiful, and a cute place! (but could use more seating) Service is prompt and courteous, and who doesn't love a cupcake as a mid-afternoon snack?!

The cupcakes here are phenomenal. They include creative flavor combinations, and are made with top-quality ingredients. They're fairly expensive, but they are large and delicious, so well worth a splurge. Service has always been excellent.

The cupcakes here are amazing. My favorite cupcake is the S'mores cupcake and the Triple Belgian Chocolate cupcake. The cupcakes are well made and unique. Out of all the cupcakes I have eaten, the Lavender Moon cupcakes are #1!

Love these cupcakes. Better than the other gourmet cupcakes in the area. These are adult cupcakes with a sophisticated flavor. They are too expensive to give to kids to gulp down and not enjoy the refined flavor.

Its off the beaten track (that is S Royal) if all you do is walk on King street. I live in OT and have sampled every cupcake place, this is ONE and ONLY place I will purchase a cupcake from. Their assortment is plentiful and...More
