While waiting for a restaurant to eat lunch, we ran into Cupcake Charlie's. Planning to just "look around and come back after lunch," we couldn't pass up the salted caramel cupcake. We got two, ending up eating dessert first! The cupcake was soft and moist, with a caramel filling. The salt on top of the caramel flavoring icing was just... More

My Husband loves to step in side and look - they have a BIG selection - and if you are looking for a cupcake here it is.....enjoy! The shop is right in the middle of all the shopping a good break for someone who is not interested in going into all the shops but is looking for a treat!

Cupcake Charlie's is located on Thames Street in Newport. Once you step in the store, you know that you will buy a cupcake. They have a variety of choices. My family and I each bought a different cupcake and found ourselves sharing tastes. They had been winners on Cupcake Wars and it was easy to see why. I would recommend... More

I am a regular customer at the Plymouth, MA location. The Newport Cupcake Charlie's had just as many options, including gluten free options, as the Plymouth store. My husband enjoyed a lemon cupcake, and I had some gluten free cookies. They were delicious. The only drawback was that the gf cookies were a little hard. In addition, the staff was... More

My husband and I found this little cupcake shop on our weekend trip to Newport. I bought a funfetti cupcake while my husband bought a chocolate peanut butter cupcake. Both were delicious. The place was clean and you could see into the kitchen which was a nice touch.

I usually enjoy Cupcake Charlies, but when I went to the Newport, RI spot on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, I was underwhelmed. Not only was the selection small, all of the cupcakes that I purchased were not fresh or even tasty. In fact, by the next day, the frosting had hardened. Very disappointing for this establishment. The next time I... More

Well you have a glorious cup cake and what ...that's right they will mash your choice of cupcake into quite possibly the best soft serve vanilla ice cream I've ever had (trust me I've eaten a lot of ice cream) - please be sure you stop here and try this wonderful invention - it's pretty big though I might share...
