We stopped in on Halloween and the girl at the counter was handing out mini cupcakes to the kids trick or treating, it was a really cute personal touch.

We stopped in for two cupcakes to take back to our hotel for a later dessert feast. Chose the red velvet and a chocolate creation whose name escapes me. Made some coffee in our room and enjoyed. Excellent choices. Pricey, but typical for gourmet bakeries.

The cupcakes were ok. I have had cupcakes alot when we travel. But my favorite place is near were we live. Lake Placid cupcakes were dry and not very neat.

Delicious cupcakes and in so many different flavours. The cupcakes are offered in regular size and mini-sizes. This place also offers other sugary treats like cookies.

The sweets were good, nothing particularly special. I was a bit disappointed because I heard so much. They were good, but just not as good as everyone is saying.

Yoy are going to have a hard time deciding on what you want to eat hear, but the cookies are the best I have ever had. I wish we had a place like this in our town. I will make more trips just to see this place!

I've read so much hype about this bakery that I wanted to try it. Mind you, I'm a very good baker, so I'm often disappointed when I sample others baked goods. I was going to get their black and white cookies - but the cookie was white! I'd never heard of a white black and white! And they were $3.50... More
