This is a cute store and the young gal who helped us was very nice. We really wanted to like the cupcakes, but something is off. As other people mentioned, there was not a big selection - although it was late in the day. We...More

Went searching for a perfect latte and found it at this location. The owner was very friendly. Also had a perfectly toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese. Did not try the cupcakes this visit but will definitely return for one.

Not sure if they've gone downhill or it was just an off day...maybe storage is such that the cupcakes dry out by afternoon (and the selection wanes by then?). Spendy prices demand higher quality. Staff was nice. Tiny shop.

Thumbs down, they were a big disappointment. They were very dry and not overly flavorful. Tasted like they were made a couple days ago.

Not sure, but the owner is a delight and very helpful, best customer service in Vail, I'm sure if she does not make Birthday Cakes, she will point you in the right direction.
