Oh no, I'm sorry to hear the cupcakes weren't up to our quality standards. We bake everything fresh daily and we always love to share the best in fresh, flavorful treats, so it definitely sounds like we slipped up on that batch. I do apologize...More

Butter Lane allows you to pick your cupcake (vanilla, chocolate or banana) and your frosting (raspberry, vanilla, chocolate sea salt, peanut butter and many more). It's a fun place to pick up a sweet. There is no indoor seating, which doesn't affect the lovely cupcakes,...More
