Not very good. The flavors were completely off. They were either not strong enough or overpowering! The icing has no flavor other than sugar and cupcakes aren't very moist. Ours were more hard and chewy than anything else. Only use this place as a last resort...even getting stoned didn't make these things any better...

Cupcake has a decadent cupcake selection, with creative flavors and generous amounts of delicious frosting. They even occasionally have vegan cupcake options (which do not compromise on taste).

Cupcakes are not good at all. Frosting is disgusting and there is nothing to the cake. I enjoy the box made cupcakes more than these.

I went here with my daughter because she was dying to try these cupcakes. First off we got in there and weren't greeted. Then the girl who helped us was not nice at all she dropped our cupcake and looked to see if I saw her since she felt I didn't she proceeded to give it to me until I told her oh no, I want another one. For the price you pay for these cupcakes I should get great service. I can only imagine what goes on when the store is closed and no one really sees whats going on besides the employees. I will never go there again and I have told all my friends and family about my experience.

These cupcakes look very appealing, but I would say they are just ok. Way too much icing for me, making it difficult to eat without a fork or spoon. Not even a close comparison to some other gourmet cupcakes I've tried, but I've still come here on occasion for cupcakes for parties or for a friend's birthday. One morning before work, I decided I did want to get a cupcake to take to a friend for his birthday. I tried the door and it was open so I walked in, eager to get the cupcake so I could get to work. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by "We're not open yet" to which I apologized, and at that point I didn't know whether to turn around and leave, (which I would have done if they preferred) or wait 2-3 minutes until 10 am for them to "open". I was made to feel embarrassed for walking in to give business a couple minutes too early. However, they had no problem ringing me up for the cupcake right then and I was able to get on with my day. Seemed as though they just wanted to make a point that they weren't open yet, which I will remember before going back there again.
