Easy to find. Limited late night selection, but it's cupcakes at midnight! Line moves only as fast as the people do (mostly tourist who don't have any ideas what the want or CC handy ;-) ). Great for the cupcake loving wife of mine.

I was pretty excited to try this place, especially because it was walking distance from our hotel we were staying at (The Westin Michigan Ave). Maybe after reading all of these reviews I was expecting a lot more, I don't know. The cupcakes were pretty good, but I would not go out of my way to get them again. I... More

They have a great cupcake ATM outside if the line it too long, either way the cupcakes are delicious and I definitely recommend going! All the cupcakes are equally delicious!

Wow great cupcakes and a unique ATM to dispense cupcakes after hours, a winning combination! We like the red velvet!

Great cupcakes, open late and they have a cupcake ATM, for when they are closed. Double chocolate and Salted caramel were both out of this world.

Enjoyed sampling the cupcakes at Sprinkles. My favorite were the chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream icing! Great afternoon stop while shopping.

First time here after reading reviews about this place and it was one minute walk from my hotel. The cupcakes were so delicious that words can't describe how tasty each one of them were. Not cheap (around 4$ each) but it's a must!. You only live once :)

These cupcakes are definitely good, wouldn't say to die for, but they are definitely smaller than they used to be and the quality is less consistent. They used to have a lot of icing on every single cupcake. Now some barely have a trace. If you want a better chance of getting a lot of icing, buy the cupcakes with... More

You will find a wide variety of cupcakes in every flavour you can think of. They stay fresh for several day. Our granddaughter really enjoyed the mini cupcakes.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
