    I'm a big red velvet fan and after sampling all the different types (cake slice, brownie, cupcake, whoopie pie) the red velvet cupcake is hands down the yummiest!

    Bit of a no brainer this: the aviary temptress is always luring in passers-by, diners with spare stomach space and hardcore fans. Red velvet cakes, I swear on my sweet palates, some of the best.

    My favourite cakes! The rainbow and lemon raspberry ripple cakes in particular. Although afternoon tea here is a bit too much cake for me.

    I tried the red velvet cupcake as the obvious choice. It was good. REALLY good. But it was the pumpkin whoopie pie that wowed me. You must eat this. Just wow.

    Rainbow cake a fierce competitor to the red velvet. All the layers have different flavours. Tastes amaze and looks fabulous.

    Friendly and helpful staff. The 'Made Without' vanilla cupcakes are really good. Not dry like gluten free cakes can often be :) wish I'd had two!
  • Magdalena M.
    Red velvet cupcake, red velvet puff, red velvet anything... it's all super delicious!

    Buy your cake and walk over to Soho Square to sun with all the other bohemians. Lemon raspberry cake was lovely.

    Try the red velvet cake or carrot cake and be sure to also order a glass of ice-cold milk: it goes great with the cupcakes!

    Staring at a wall while eating your cupcake? Go instead to enjoy your treat to Soho Square and save some pennies too.
  • Natalia S.
    The service is polite but poor in summary. A girl asked me 3 times what I want (carrot cake), brought a cupcake. I told her for a 4th time I want to eat carrot cake, she brought it for takeaway... LOL

    Key lime pie cupcake (special on Sunday) is not good as it doesn't actually taste of much. Red velvet or vanilla are safer bets.
