Good quality, nice presentation. They have gluten free typically on the menu but the selections do change daily.

We were out walking when my husband decided he needed to satisfy a sweet tooth. I just happened to look up and notice the cute storefront Sprinkles. We were able to score two very delicious cupcakes Banana/Dark Chocolate, and Coconut. Oh my goodness, these were just perfect. The line quickly grew out the door. No wonder!

Pretty good but not the best cupcakes I've ever had. The staff was friendly. Prices were a tad expensive. Overall decent. I would try another place next time we visit Chicago though.

Perfect execution of a traditional recipe. And the decorations, amazing. Tea option gives then additional scores. Many options of tea from earl grey to mint.

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!

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.
