All of our gourmet cupcakes are baked daily using All Natural Ingredients!! We are Hampton's newest Cupcake and coffee shop. Also offering organic coffee and Free Wifi. Ethereal Cupcakes and Coffee Shoppe is the absolute fruition of a dream, born out of a heartfelt and thought provoking discussion centered on the following question:
 “Why aren’t there any bakeries or cupcake shops that bake cupcakes every day from scratch without any artificial flavoring, artificial colors, no cake mixes, just all natural ingredients, void of all the dangerous dyes and artificial food colors and only the finest chocolates and ingredients obtainable?" 

The answer was found in 3 small but immensely profound words: Why not us?   So from that Ethereal Cupcakes and Coffee Shoppe was born!  
We recently celebrated our first anniversary, and it's magical, thank to our incredible customers, since our open, we've were the only bakery listed for Best CUSTOMER SERVICE in Hampton Rds.  We were voted best bakery, best cupcakes and best Coffee in the Hampton Roads area. We are the ONLY bakery that has celebrity guest come in an bake with us in the Ethereal Kitchen nearly every week.  Celebrity guest like Daphne Maxwell Reed, you may know her as Aunt Vivian on the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and too many to list.  Additionally we've made cupcakes specifically for entertainers like Dave Koz, Jonathan Butler, Keiko Matsui, and Oleta Adams. And we are one of the only bakeries endorsed by Jim White Fitness.  We are committed to giving our customer an environment that they positively cannot get ANY PLACE other than Ethereal Cupcakes and Coffee Shoppe. Stop by and see us, you are truly going to LOVE IT HERE.....We promise!

The service there was impeccable. I loved the workers and their cupcakes. Why aren't they on cupcake wars? They should be on cupcake wars! The first time I tried their Vegan cupcakes, I was like wow for a vegan cupcake these are FANTASTIC! I came back for a second time for their Gourmet & Second Gourmet cupcakes and they were styuhaijxkdnldsa beyond words. I've never had Nutella before and Ethereal Cupcakes made the comfort of having the Banana with the Nutella and it was AWESOME! I totes recommend the Turtle because it is beyond words. Go there. Have a Great time. It was awesome! :D

The service is phenomenal. However, the cupcakes are not the best at all and definitely not worth the money. I have been a couple times to this place. The first time I just thought I got a bad cupcake. I guess not. The second time, I got a caramel cheesecake cupcake and it tasted nothing like all. I also got a cookie dough cupcake. There was a couple instances I could taste the cookie dough, but I really had to dig in the cupcake to get it. There was too much frosting that overpowered any other taste that may have been in that cupcake. Plus, the price is beyond expensive and nowhere near worth it. Nine dollars for 2 cupcakes? Ridiculous. The two stars is for the awesome customer service, taste gets nothing.

I’ll be honest- I’ve been here twice and the only thing that’s impressed me is the service, and even then I’ve only had good (great) service from one employee. He described himself as a walking cupcake encyclopedia, and he had a great attitude. The owner, however, seemed to want to rush through my visit (at 8pm? Well past rush hour?) I didn’t feel very welcome by him, and when I’m paying the amount I’m paying for a single - and tiny -cupcake…I don’t know, it just didn’t leave a great taste in my mouth. I didn’t really appreciate it. Speaking of taste: the cupcakes I’ve had were super dry. The first one was over six months ago, so I don’t remember the flavor, but it should say something about the kitchen if the only thing I do remember is how dry the cake was. The frosting, as I recall, was also very oily. It left a slick residue. More recently I decided to try the gluten-free red velvet cupcake, and it was equally as dry. The frosting this time was superb, but the cake itself literally crumbled…at least, the parts of it that weren’t stuck to the wrapper did. I wasn’t even asked if I wanted a fork, which was odd considering that almost everyone else after me was. All in all, I can’t say I’d recommend this place. The guy who helped me out –Llangston, I believe – was awesome. He was knowledgeable and had no problem leaving me to make my own choice. The owner was the exact opposite. He seemed frantic and unsure while simultaneously being overbearing. Good service, not-so-great cupcakes.

This was my first experience having a custom cake made. My daughter is expecting her first baby and was very excited to have a gender reveal party. She had a picture of cake she wanted but we ordered last minute not knowing she was going to have the ultrasound to find out what she is having until the last minute. The staff was very nice and Carolyn the owner was very accommodating with our decorating request and time frame. I've never ordered a custom cake so maybe it's normal for the decorating to costs almost double the amount of a basic cake which is $65 base price. I gladly paid to keep the special moment going for my daughter. The cake looked great, Natasha the decorator did a good job matching what we requested. After tasting the cake I'm a little disappointed in how much I paid. The cake tasted good but I could have probably made just has good of a cake. The icing isn't very sweet which disappointed my daughter and I think it tastes mostly of butter. Again, the service is great and I love supporting a local small business but I'm just not sure I got my money's worth. I will try some of their cupcakes in the future.

I cannot say enough about the customer service of Ethereal Cupcakes! They literally go the extra mile (driving cupcakes across town) to be sure they have happy customers. I am thoroughly enjoying strawberry, vanilla, chocolate and peanut butter frostings on delightfully moist and flavorful complimenting cakes. We will most definitely be passing the word and encouraging friends to order these lovely cupcakes for upcoming occasions as well as a wonderful treat while shopping at Peninsula Town Center. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I'm giving this three stars due to the cupcakes are delicious and the staff has been helpful (mostly). But, since my family liked the cupcakes, we decided to order a graduation cake. Due to the limited sizing, we had to go up a size to ensure everyone would be able to get a piece of the cake, and these cakes are not cheap. When we went to pick up the cake, the staff member who helped us showed us the cake, and there was an issue with the sugar image on the cake. They assured us that it was normal, but this was really bumpy with, what appeared to be, air pockets underneath it. We were already dissatisfied with that, knowing how much this cake costed to have a "bumpy" image. Then, as he was packaging it back up, something went wrong with the packaging and he couldn't close it securely like it was before. While trying to fix it, he ended up hitting the side of the cake and messing up the icing and trim. After noting that to him, he proceeded to give us an attitude and said he did not mess it up and we just took the cake as-is. The cake overall was good, even though it didn't taste like the "vanilla bean" that was ordered (or the vanilla bean flavor is bland - I'm not sure). But after the whole thing, we tried contacting the store via e-mail (how they received the image to place on the cake), and there was never an apology or even a response for what had happened. After the amount we paid for the cake to be bumpy and dented, I found that disrespectful and rude.

"Gluten Free Chai Tea" cupcake

In many Eurasian languages, chai or cha is the word for tea. This comes from the Persian چای chay. Despite this, in many Western languages this spiced tea is commonly referred to as simply chai,[1] which can lead to conflation. For this reason, the term chai tea, although redundant (as all masala chai is tea), is sometimes used to indicate spiced milk tea as distinct from other types of tea. But Ethereal Cupcakes we use it to make one of the most incredible cupcakes ever. But you be the judge, we think is going to put a big smile on your face.

Hello everyone!! The "Screw Driver" cupcake is available today!

Stop in and embrace the delicious taste of Vodka and 100% real Orange Juice

This popular drink that this delicious cupcake is named for, reportedly got its name because American petroleum engineers in Saudi Arabia secretly added vodka to small cans of orange juice and stirred the mixture with their screwdrivers. But whatever the case may be, you're going to love this one. The delightful taste of Vodka and 100% Real orange juice and oh yes the frosting is infused with Vodka and 100% pure orange juice as well. it's a screwdriver, but you won't get hammered!!!

Really does it get any better than this??? Once you taste this one you will agree that NOBODY DOES IT BETTER THAN ETHEREAL CUPCAKES and COFFEE SHOPPE.

Then topped with our delicious White chocolate butter cream that is infused with Kahlua and Triple Shot Espresso Vodka, then finished with garnished Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate curls.

Hello everyone! If you haven't tried the "Apple Of My Eye" cupcake yet today's your lucky day :0)

This cupcake one is truly a decadent, down home treat, submitted to us from Gina Smith.  Apple of My Eye is an All-American dessert. We begin with freshly cut, handpicked Granny Smith apples using the perfect blend of spices, married with our signature moist delicious cake, topped with the most delicious caramel cream cheese frosting. This is honestly the next level of apple pie.

Good morning everyone :0) The alcohol infused "White Russian" cupcake available today!

Did you know that the name White Russian wasn't named after the country of origin but actually the type of vodka that it was used that is associated with Russia. Also it did not get its current recipe until the 1960s where originally it was without the cream, or the Black Russian, but was adding the cream in the Diner's Club Drink Book.

We start with a creamy vanilla cupcake and boosted the flavors with white chocolate filled with Vodka and Kahlua topped with a White Russian Buttercream. Вы будете любить его or for those who read or speak Russian You'll Love it!

See today's full menu here:

Lots of surprises today!!
