We had Cupcake Down South before the the huge surge of Cupcake shops on every street corner became a regular occurrence. After a short walk to get there through the beautiful Charleston streets, we were rewarded with a delicious cup cake. Plenty of choices to choose from and frosting stacked high mmmm.

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.

Visiting Charleston - my favorite place so far! The folks who work there are awesome, AND they have cupcakes...

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.
