This used to be my absolute favorite cupcakery, having experienced them monthly for many years until this past week when I detected a change in their frosting composition. The frosting is tastes more "oily" than creamy (for lack of a more culinary way to define...More

We dropped in as we were strolling King St. We got some cupcakes to go and enjoy at our hotel after dinner.

It was a nice cupcake shop,. A few tables and plenty of nice service. The selection was good, and the prices were pretty decent. Too bad they ran out of gluten free options early.
