“Good cupcakes, grear service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Stumbled into this place at 11:30 on a Friday and the service was amazing. You'd think for it being so late, they would be annoyed with us or be flat but no - they were super helpful and even provided samples! Banana pudding just as good as Magnolia without the wait, and awesome cupcakes at a good price.

“It's neither Magnolia nor Amy's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

but if you are around the area and crave some cupcakes or cake it's a good place to go. Nothing extraordinary.

“Don't go here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The world's best cupcakes. Golden with chocolate frosting. Devil dog with white frosting. Red velvet. Don't go here if you don't want to eat the best cupcakes in the world. Great sheet cakes for parties too.

“Best Banana Pudding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The Red Velvet cupcakes are amazing here, vanilla cupcakes are superb, not to mention the banana pudding. I am addicted to their banana pudding!! So delicious. They have a small size in case you want to try and not buy a whole huge container of it.

Chocolate cake is also very yummy. Service is quick and friendly - they always have a smile on their faces.

“One bite was enough”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

My friend and I shared a golden vanilla buttercream cupcake. It didn't look like a professionally baked dessert, and we were very disappointed in its taste. It was a bland, dense cake with generic, overly sweet frosting that was crunchy on the outside (we thought the cupcake had been made a few days before). We each took one bite then decided to move on. The shop is cute and maybe other treats are better - the little cheesecakes looked good. If you stop here, I would try something other than a cupcake.
