I really enjoying stopping in here for a cupcake. Some of the offerings are a bit dense and dry, but the flavors are fantastic.

Quite nice find while strolling through Glenwood Ave. Nice, cozy with good coffee and cupcakes. Will most certainly go back.

And it is worth every bite! I can not tell you which cupcake is my favorite, and that is saying a lot! This place puts creativity and flavor into every thing it does. Located in Glenwood South, it's a great stop no matter the hour! The cakes are magical, too!

My wife and I drop in when in town for dessert and coffee. We're big fans of the peanut butter cup and pretty n pink. Also love the rotating flavor of the week! Would recommend.

After finding this bakery on Instagram, I was disappointed. We ordered and paid for 3 different cupcakes and 3 macaroons. This cost over $13, and 1 cupcake was left out of our bag. The bad thing was we were staying 30 mins away and had made a special trip there. To go back to retrieve the cupcake was not worth... More

Me and my wife had high hopes for this shop. We are avid fans of Food Network's Cupcake Wars and were eager to try some local treats to celebrate our anniversary. What we got was an utter disappointment in a pretty box. We were greeted at the door and our order was take. The service given is the only reason... More

These cupcakes are delicious! I have not had one that I didn't like. My boss treats us to cupcakes each month to celebrate staff birthdays and everyone loves them.
