Really liked my cupcake treat I got here. It was a chocolate cupcake and was priced very reasonably. I would recommend checking it out if you're in the area.

There are a few cupcakes in the NW and this is a good one. I always go for the chocolate varieties. Conveniently located in the UW Tacoma neighborhood Hello Cupcake is a clean and spacious store. It is very good but I personally can't get excited about cupcakes. I do always stop in if I go to UW Tacoma bookstore.

We had the German chocolate cake and pumpkin cupcakes. They were delicious, moist and flavorful. A treat not to be missed if you can splurge a little.

A group of friends thought it would be fun to try a cupcake decorating party. For $12 each, we got two cupcakes to decorate and a non-alcoholic beverage. Sounds fun, right? It was, but our imagination was greater than what Hello Cupcake supplied! Decorators only get vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet cupcakes; (white) vanilla, chocolate, and (white) cream cheese frosting;... More

I love Hello Cupcake, I got them for my wedding in July, but have been a customer since March when I moved to Washington.

Awesome regular flavors you can always count on and always something new and fun to try too. cute atmosphere inside. My favorite staple flavors are carrot cake and red velvet. They are a little spendy, but worth it for a splurge every once in awhile.

Stopped by with my son who is attending class on the UW-Tacoma campus. The pastries we good and the coffee outstanding. If your a people watcher, it's a good place to watch different people pass by outside! I'll visit again in the future!

Some of the best cupcakes I have eaten. They offer a nice selection of flavors and their appearance is pleasing. The establishment is very quaint to sit and eat your cupcake. The staff was very friendly. I visit every time I go to Washington
