“Great sweet and salty cupcake!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We have enjoyed the cupcake sundaes and cupcakes a la mode before, fun and tasty treats but this time I just tried the Sweet and Salty Cupcake, without any extras. It was such a treat, a perfect blend of moist vanilla cake, creamy sweet filling and chocolate frosting, it had just the right amount of salty, sea salt, peanuts and a pretzel embellishment. The flavors blended perfectly.
My husband had the strawberry lemonade cupcake and said it was moist and delicious. Very refreshing.
This is a very tiny shop and it serves ice cream as well as cupcakes so it is very crowded trying to order and there is no real way of knowing who is waiting and where to stand until you are served. It would be great to have a certain place to line up to order.

“Just Ok”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I have been to better tasting and better priced cupcake places. These are a bit over priced and not that fresh.

“pretty good”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Nice sized cupcakes with just the right amount of frosting, cute toppings and fun flavors. The Boston Cream Pie was good, as were a few others. One, however, had a hair in the frosting. We noticed it when we left the shop and took it back inside to exchange. He told us it was the chocolate ganache that just appeared to be a hair and didn't offer to give us a replacement. It was indeed a hair, so that one got thrown away:(
Super cute shop! We won't let a little hair stop us from visiting again, should we be in the area!

“Yummy in my Tummy”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

What a great little shop. The woman that served us was great - :"you can have it anyway that you like". We had the sweet and salty cupcake as part of a large sundae - that is two scoops of ice cream (two different flavors) with a touch of hot fudge, whipped cream, and two cherries....we split this decadent dessert. We took ouir bounty outside and sat on the bench and people watched. It was great fun!!

“Yummy cupcake!”

Be sure to try the peanut butter cup cupcake! Sinful, but, oh so good! They also serve Gifford's ice cream! What a great treat!
