If you find yourself in Portland, Maine. You need to try the cupcakes. Moist cake and fantastic icing. I honestly can not see how they could be any better. Just the right size so as to not spoil dinner. While your at it. Have two.

Modest sized cupcakes, but big on flavor. The perfect little great at the end of the day. Tried the chocolate with chocolate frosting, and all-vanilla. Sweet, but not too. Good selection of flavors available, so check it out to see what will tickle your palate!

My husband and I stopped by after seeing so many people leave with little pink boxes. I had the tiramisu and he had the chocolate salted. He said his was average and mine was decadent.

Was craving an ice coffee and did not want to do the Starbucks thing. Thought this place looked good and would have iced coffee. Apparently they do but the girl working said they were out. This was a little before noon so apparently they were making no more. We settled for cupcakes and asked for water to drink. The cupcakes... More

The cupcakes here are pretty good - I've always liked the frosting. Cupcakes aside, they really need to work on their customer service. The girl behind the counter today was rude and nonchalant, and didn't seem to care much about retaining customers or business. She would answer with very short and dismissive remarks, and would then awkwardly stare, waiting for... More

This place has always been boring, as you walked in, but always gave it the benefit of the doubt. Today decided to have a cupcake there, haven't been there in a year, realized the cupcakes seemed smaller, not a big variety. Coffee was lukewarm, tasteless. For being one of the only cupcake places in the Old Port, they need to... More

This is a really cute cupcake shop! The window display in front is very cute with designed cupcakes. The inside is very comfortable with a good amount of seating. The selection of cupcakes are limited but the cupcakes were very delicious. Definitely worth stopping in if you are looking for a sweet treat!

The cupcakes at East End are good. The cupcakes are yummy, and not too expensive. A few years ago the owners of East End cupcakes were contestants on Food Network's "Cupcake Wars". They did well, and placed second out of four teams.
