“Cupcakes will 'change your life'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stopped at this bakery on our way to the Space Needle. When we entered the spot, we noticed all the whimsical colors and the inviting atmosphere. We talked with the staff about the place: been around since ~2005 or so. They have 4 standard cupcakes that they make everyday and every other cupcake changes daily. Great idea as this allows for very creative flavors and you don't have to eat the same cupcake twice. We purchased the pancake & bacon, and chocolate & lavender cupcakes. Outstanding! Believe it or not, the cupcakes tasted exactly as the name implied. The pancake cupcake tasted exactly like a pancake with syrup on it. The icing has bacon sprinkles. The chocolate and lavender cupcake actually had a chocolate and vanilla cake with a lavender icing.

Overall, great experience, great sweets and great cupcakes! Stop by if you are in town.

“Yummy cupcakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Stopped here on our Savour Seattle Tour, the cupcakes were yummy with very inventive flavors. We enjoyed a pancakes and bacon cupcake and a chocolate ganache cupcake. So yummy and not overly sweet, or fakey tasting like most cupcakes shops. You can taste the quality ingredients and care that goes into these cupcakes.

“Fun Flavours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

A yummy little stop to gather strength during a long day of shopping. I decided to try the Pancakes and Bacon cupcake as it seemed to be their signature flavour. The frosting was light and fluffy with a fun breakfast flavour. The icing to cupcake ratio was excellent with moments of teeth floating through frosting before settling into the cake. I also enjoyed a cup of lavender tea that is farmed in a near by town to round out a lovely tourist adventure for my tastebuds.

“Must Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Need I say any more then pancake and bacon cupcake? Not really but I'll add...apple cinnamon bacon and hazelnut buttermilk bacon are also some of the selections. Doesn't everything go better with bacon? And if you are really weird and don't like bacon there are so many other flavors you will NOT be disappointed. If you're in Seattle and you absolutely love cupcakes... even if you don't... don't leave without stopping. You won't be disappointed.
