I stopped in for some cupcakes because, well, who doesn't love cupcakes? I picked up four different types so that my wife and I could try them all. Overall, they were pretty good - definitely better than those you'd find in your average bakery. I'll...More

The cupcakes are pricy, but they are worth the cost. The cupcakes are worth each bite. Get there early, or you might lost out.

I've stopped and gotten a half-dozen cupcakes here three times. It's some place I'd go as a splurge, either for a celebration or for something special. They have a variety of flavors that always changes. They go the extra mile and decorate them really nicely,...More

I wanted very badly to like Philly Cupcake. They have a shabby-chic look, adorable 'cabinet' presentation, quaint storefront... but sadly, the cupcakes did not live up to expectation. Don't get me wrong, they were good so far as cupcakes go. But nothing special... Especially $5.50-each...More

The store is fun to go into. Everything is shabby-chic in vibrant pastel colors. The cupcakes are on display in a windowed cupboard. They look sensational and the descriptions sound great. I bought a flourless chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and chocolate icing. The cake...More

The place itself is not very pleasant, as it looks a bit worn out and is very tight, with the kitchen open in the back; there are only three small tables to sit outside. But we are here for the taste of the cupcakes, not...More

The cupcakes looked great on the outside. But, the cupcakes were all very dry, small and the biggest thing on them was the icing. For $11.74 for three meager cupcakes, next time I will bake my own.
