This is a cute little place, conveniently located near the intersection of Baltimore and Steinwehr. The sandwiches are delicious. We ate them in the cafe, which has three tables inside, and took our cupcakes back to our hotel. The proprietors are very friendly. The only thing I would have done differently here is buy more cupcakes! They were very, very good. We will be back on our next trip to Gettysburg.

“Moist cupcakes”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Cute intimate cafe with a variety of flavored cupcakes, choc. chip cookies or beverages/coffee. We had a cupcake and latte. The cupcakes were very moist and tasty. Took home a variety pack and I couldn't stop thinking about eating another when I got home from work the next day. The owners and staff are very friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to return to Gettysburg to stop in again. Would love to see a variety pack of mini cupcakes.

“Never caught it open”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

I looked for coffee shop locations prior to my trip to Gettyburg, and the Cupcake Cafe came up in the reviews as highly rated. I was happily surprised then when it was located right outside my bed and breakfast. The disappointing part, was that after 3 attempts to go for coffees on the mornings of our visit (thursday, friday, and saturday), they were never open, even a Saturdaay morning at 10:15am. Seems like they do not have set hours, but are just open when they want to be. There are also no hours posted. We did see the Open sign out on Friday afternoon, but on a warm day, we were not looking for coffee then. They may want to consider being open in the mornings so that tourists heading out to the battlefields and museums can get coffee on their way out. I can't really rate their food since I did not have anything there, so I gave it 3 stars, based on the fact that due to the other reviews online it must be decent.

gettysburgcupcakes, Owner at Gettysburg Cupcake Cafe', responded to this review, 9 June 2014
We are sorry that the reviewer missed us on their trip to Gettysburg. However, there are some misunderstandings we would like to correct in this review.

Contrary to the reviewer's assertion, we do not just open when we want. We have set hours that are posted on our main door, on our web site, on our Facebook page and on Google Places.

Also, we do not claim to be a coffee shop. Some search engines and web sites may list us as a coffee shop since we do serve coffee and espresso drinks but that is out of our control. Gettysburg Cupcake Cafe is a cafe that specializes in cupcakes. We are fairly new and are slowly growing our business. In the future, we would like to offer breakfast but for now we are focusing on improving the number of options we offer for lunch and dessert.

We can assure readers of this review, the hours listed on our web site are the hours that we will be open.

“Worth the trip from wherever you are”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

The cupcakes are just amazing here! Today we had the creamcicle cupcakes and white mochas...just wonderful. I've preciously had the chocolate cupcakes that were amazing. Just not enough adjectives to describe how good these cupcakes are. You have to try them for yourself!

“Still pretty good!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Still pretty good indeed! This place here has a lot of great cupcakes and cookies to pick from and it seems like they change the flavor of their cupcakes that they sell from time to time. Their M&M cookie is good along with their cookie dough one as well!
