Cupcakes are delicious! I love the tuxedo, chocolate cake with white buttercream. The buttercream compliments the cake well. The cupcakes are large. Two convenient locations. Love that one opened in Chesterfield. You can't go wrong here. The customer service is excellent and shop is nicely decorated.

Large cupcakes with thick buttercream icing. Prices can range from $2-5 for a cupcake depending on the type ordered. The cupcakes are very large and the price is worth it. They have their staples (double choc, tuxedo, red velvet) & many specials depending on the season. The store has a small sitting area if you want to stop in for... More

Nice place to visit and the staff provides excellent customer service. The cupcakes has lost flavor. The frosting is starting to taste like granulated sugar, instead of a nice, sweet and flavorful butter cream. Not sure if the recipe has changed. If so, please go back to your original cupcake & frosting making recipes.

Not the greatest cupcakes you can get around town but definitely not the worst. They do have a nice selection of cupcakes whenever you're feeling froggy or need a quick single for someone's birthday...that's usually when I'm here. They even have candles at the register for your convenience. It's nice to sit inside, maybe even a small group outing. Nice... More

I love the Cup! Their cupcakes are always amazing! One of my favorites is the Turtle Cupcake, which was what I had on this trip, and it didn't disappoint!

I've always wanted to try this place while visiting the area and they finally extended their hours. So I noticed the cups around the corner in Straub's. Anyway...I was expecting a super duper moist piece of heaven. It fell short. The associates were nice and the cup was packaged so the icing stayed in place.

I have been here on multiple occasions simply because the cupcakes are delicious and fairly affordable compared to others in the area. Most recently we visited for my husbands birthday and once again, I was delighted as usual. They have many standard flavors and also always have some limited flavors to match current holiday seasons as well!

We ordered many flavors for a party at a nearby restaurant. The peanut butter cup was my favorite. Red velvet was a close second. All the flavors were fantastic--moist cake, smooth frosting, very flavorful. Yum!
