Tried the chocolate ganache cupcake and LOVED the icing and ganache topping. The cake itself was just okay. The cupcakes were a little pricey. Would go back to try another flavor to give them another try.

My wife and daughter buy pricey cupcakes in NYC all the time. To me they are no better than a Drakes or Entemann's from the gas station. But saw this shop and picked up a half dozen for my daughter. Store is nice, and the service was good. Yes, these are expensive and smaller than others. But these were also... More

I usually grab a cupcake whenever I'm at the Rio, depending on their flavors I sometimes grab two. The cupcakes are your standard specialty cupcakes that you see everywhere. The quality and flavor is above average but you won't be blown away by anything innovative. They don't skimp on the frosting on the cupcakes which is nice, however the cupcakes... More

For Thanksgiving our family was gifted cake pops "turkey" cupcakes, and leaf sugar cookies. All colorful and beautifully decorated and tasty. Kids especially love the cupcakes. Sugar cookies are good but part of the "leaf" of most of the cookies came broken. Too bad.

When in the area this should be a part of your stop...I encourage supporting local businesses and this one will not disappoint! Enjoy the Chocolate Ganache (my personal fave) or any of the cupcakes offered you will not be able to stop at just one!!

My stay-fit motto regarding sweet is: only eat the best. Well, Lilly Magilly's Cupcakery is on my list as the best. I purchased a chocolate cupcake with salted caramel. It was a dark chocolate cake with a light delicious icing and caramel drizzled on top. The perfect mid-afternoon snack with a cup of tea. As I said, only the best... More

Cute little shop. Friendly, quiet staff. Minimal selection of cupcake flavors. Ingenious way of packing the cupcakes in their "To Go" containers. A bag to carry them was not offered. Bought Red Velvet and Salted Caramel cupcakes. Both were good but average cupcakes.

Excellent cupcakes but for $3 a cupcake I thought they were a bit small. Variety is very good and the icing was phenomenal but for the price you pay, I'd expect a cupcake that takes you more than 2 bites to eat.

These cupcakes are delicious! They have a good selection. The latest 3 I tried were Blueberry Lemon, Cookies and Cream and Strawberry Cheesecake and like I said, delicious. If you are having date night at one of the restaurants in this little area, skip there deserts and come here.

Been here a few times. They have lots of variety if you are there at the right time. For some reason I just don't like their chocolate cupcakes...and I love chocolate. Not these though. Icing is really sugary and not very good in my opinion. But my son likes their cupcakes and that's all that counts. They are a little... More
