    Vanilla Vixen is my favorite--one of the best vanilla cupcakes out there!

    You can file your punch card! Brilliant! Probably a good idea to use a nickname starting with "Q" or "X" so it's easier to find :)

    Gluten free cupcakes are amazing, and they have organic milk on tap!

    the only thing good here us the strawberry milk. the cupcakes are super dry and the frosting is a joke. I took one bite and the frosting fell off in one big chunk. Sprinkles is so much better.

    Great cupcakes! Had the creme brûlée & peanut butter. They were delicious. I appreciate that you can order "mini-cups" so you can sample more and not feel like a cow!

    They feature at least one vegan flavor each day. Check the website in advance!

    Tasty, but the novelty wears off quick. Then...meh.

    Cupcakes are really good but really expensive. $4 for a full cupcake which I think is more than Sprinkles. The drinks take a while to make but overall, I loved it and would go back again.

    Probably the best gluten-free pastry that I've had. Loved the chocolate peanut butter. Good espresso too.

    Everything is made in-house using only the finest ingredients. It's a Teaching Kitchen as well. Finally, organic available to the masses!

    Dry, dry, dry! Even the frosting is dry! Your better off going to sprinkles (but their stuff is super rich so...). The only thing I like about cups, the strawberry milk :)

    Try their Strawberry Teacup! It's soft, moist, delicious and also happens to be Vegan!

    They wouldn't let me use my 20% Foursquare special even though I "ate-in" on a weekday and it was 8pm. False advertising! Boooooooo!

    The peanut butter cupcake is the best!

    Do yourself a favor and get the strawberry milk on tap. And if you're a peanut butter fan, get any cup with the pb buttercream frosting. So good!

    The GF cupcakes with peanut butter frpsting is actually much better than the regular cupcakes. They are more fluffy and moist.

    Izalia Harrell · February 20, 2011

    Talk about good value for money. Only $4.50 for an organically made Pumpkin Latte and you get a free flask! Brilliant!
