Delicious cupcakes and dozens of yummy cupcakes to choose from. I personally love the chocolate cupcakes, they are rich and creamy.

I love the idea of a bakery that specializes in cup cakes. Specifically gourmet cup cakes. They have over a dozen different flavors of icing. They offer two sizes: full and mini. The minis are about $1. The full size are about $2.50. I think the best option is getting several minis. The icings are the star of the show.... More

Their icings are great, however, their cake always tastes like it was made the day before. My daughter had our granddaughter's birthday party at Sweethaus. It was totally disorganized and the young lady running the party was unprepared and disconnected through the entire event. Had we not had both parents and grandparents present to help, it would have spiraled into... More

I got a lemon cupcake for myself and red velvet for my son. I specifically asked if the lemon was tart and was told it was. The red velvet had a 'cream cheese' icing. Although the lemon cupcake was moist, there was no hint of lemon at all. And the icing was nothing but a sugary butter cream. There is... More

I love the high quality affordable bite size cupcakes that sweethaus offers. They are perfect for work birthday celebrations where so many are watching their weight. It is wonderful to be able to enjoy a high quality small delicious cupcake. I have purchased assorted mini-cupcakes for several occasions, they are always a super hit. Don't forget to try their savory... More

This place is adorable! The everything cupcake is my favorite. The salted caramel, and cookie dough are also very good. You can choose between a regular sized cupcake or a mini cupcake... the mini cupcakes are so cute and perfect for a little taste!

I am always disappointed at Sweethaus. They have great marketing, but their cupcakes do not live up. I have a huge sweet tooth and eat baked goods from somewhere probably on a weekly basis. Sweethaus' cupcakes a little small and their frosting is a little hard/dense and overly sweet. I don't even find grocery store frosted cakes too sweet, so... More

Loved it! Peanut butter icing tasted like PB fudge! Chocolate cupcake was moist with an excellent texture. The coffee and cappuccino were ok like any other coffee drinks. But I don't remember much about the coffee because the cupcake was to die for!
