I have been wanting to come here for ages. 100% all vegan bakeries are rare to come by. Located in a busy downtown street with paid street parking, I walked in on a late afternoon. The bakery itself is cute, and when you walk in you are overwhelmed with a beautiful bakery case. I got a bunch of cake balls... More

1st time here. I was in the area and needed a Vegan birthday cake. They had some good options. I bought a chocolate cake with raspberry filling. It was a big success ... even with our non-vegan guests. I also purchased 12 cupcakes. All very very good and also went over will at our celebration. My one issue was the... More

A tiny shop with convenient opening hours. I often go there for a few pieces when I need something special. They have fun decorations for holiday, Super Ball, etc. Vegan and gluten free choices look good and I am grateful for them being available locally when my daughter's birthday party comes around and kids have food restrictions. Interesting, my daughter... More

I wanted to do something special for a friend who was having a bit of a get together at a bar. Cupcakes were the ideal choice. My cousin suggested Sweet Avenue as it was closer than anywhere else and when I found out they had gluten it was a done deal! It was late in the day - so the... More

I have frequented Sweet Avenue on many occasions over the past two years. The first few times the cupcakes were fresh and tasty, but more recently the quality is lacking and the cupcakes sometimes do not taste fresh. It has been a huge disappointment. The Sexy Sadie (red velvet) was always a staple for me, but lately the cupcake lacks... More

I have visited this location before, and they have all gluten free and non-gluten free items in one case - one on top of the other! So if you are Celiac or have a serious allergy - STAY AWAY!!!!! I have a moderate allergy, and am also vegan, so I thought that this would be an OK location for the... More

I went with my daughter and husband on 5/17/14 bc I thought my daughter would like it so I wanted to split one with her. They are expensive, $3.75 for just a regular cupcake. I asked if they could cut it in half so I could share with my daughter and they seemed 'put off' by that request. I gave... More

Needed cakes for my son's birthday on short notice, and luckily Sweet Avenue was able to help us out with two off-the-shelf cakes: a vegan vanilla 8" round, carefully frosted, with delicious Bavarian creme-style filling (amazing!) and a 6" chocolate gluten-free round. The cakes are tall, so they go a long way--still had some left over after ten hungry 3rd... More

The cupcakes are good and they vary their selection daily, but $3.50 per cupcake is outrageous. They're not the large cupcakes that you can find at Crumbs; these are standard small cupcakes. It's a nice treat every once in a while, but very expensive. The location is easy to miss, especially with a big tree out front.

First let me say the cupcakes looked great....but the taste was a let down. I was disappointed. I like to support the local esablishments but not if the food is less than what I could make/bake myself.
