Lunch food is better than the cup cake – It's pretty expensive... but it's alright. The panini's take awhile, so if you're in a hurry don't go here for lunch. They are tasty and unique, but also could run you close to $9 each.
Cup cakes are nothing too special. A lot of them I could make myself and I'm not a very experienced baker. However, I've had one that was a mint chocolate and that was pretty good.
They have a beautiful patio area. It's worth going to at least once. It's next to a neat little antique shop also.
DISSAPOINTED – My friends and I went here the other day and we were sadly dissapointed! I have been craving a cupcake for a month now (sweet tooth) and googled some places that make cupcakes and Cup Cake Inc was the first to pop and and it looked like a very cute place and the cupcakes look VERY good. We tried the Red Velvet, Paris Hilton, Oreo and Smores... ALL were dry and just BLAH... nothing good about them. And the frosting for the Red Velvet was GROSS! I would never suggest to anyone going there and I will never be going back. I could make better cupcakes at home.
The upside to the place is that it's a very cute place.
Cupcakes are ok - Croissants are fantastic – I love the Chocolate Croissants, the down side is they seem to go quickly. The Cupcakes are ok, nothing to write home about. They need to some how re-work the traffic flow to view and pay for the goods. It seems to always be congested. Maybe they need one order taker and on ringer instead of both people doing the same function at the same time, something similar to Subway would work well, especially if it's busy. It' worth a visit, they need to make more Croissants on the weekend!!!!
Not worth it – I have gone to Cupcake twice now hungry for quality cupcakes. Both times I have been sorely disappointed with the quality of both the product and service. Both times the employees seemed annoyed to help me and left me feeling guilty for asking about the cupcakes. Also, on both occasions, the cupcakes were terrible. How does a business not perfect a product that its namesake? The cupcakes tasted as if they had been sitting in a refrigerator for weeks. The top of the cake on one of them was actually crunchy! The chocolate frosting tasted like an amateur concoction of mainly chocolate chips. Yuck! Do yourself a favor and skip the place!
Not worth the money – I was very excited to go to this place. Many of my co-workers gave me a list of the cupcakes that they wanted to try. When we got there, they did not have 8 out of the 15 that we needed. I was also told that the person that makes the bread did not come into work that day so there was no bread either. What a disappointment. However, when I tried the cupcake, I was glad that they were out of the rest of them. These cupcakes are dry and small with little flavor. I would have expected a little bigger of a cupcake for $3. I could have made a more moist cupcake out of a box. This place is not worth the drive.
Less than average cupcakes – I agree with the other reviewers. I had tried 2 different kinds of cupcakes, they were both dry and bland. Not worth it a $3 each. The only good thing about my visit was the flavored lip balm sold at the counter! A Piece Of Cake has much better (and bigger) cupcakes and service.
Terrible dry bread – An ounce of soup and a sandwich that was all bread, and no filling. Just one half a pice of turkey swimming in mayo.
Whoever these people have cooking and baking they need to go back to school.
nothing special – A nice environment, but the food was just ok. The BLT was good. Had it with a cup of soup and canned would have been better. The cupcake was dry and not very flavorful and for $3 for just one, it should have been GREAT. A box of hostess treats would have been better (and I'm not really a fan of them!) Not a place that I'd go to again.
alright cupcakes – I went there with my boyfriend for a treat. We both got cupcakes, each a different kind. They weren't amazing...But they weren't bad either. I just don't think they were worth the $3 or so (ea.) we payed. They have a nice outdoor sitting space, but the inside seating is limited. Overall, it didn't leave an overwhelming impression, good or bad, on me. I wouldn't avoid trying out some of their "real" food if I were in the area, but I won't go rushing back for the expensive cupcakes, either.
Crabby serves and way too expensive – Is close to my office and have tried a couple times for a quick coffee and lunch/treat. I've had a poor experience on multiple occasions. Much too price for the quality of food. Serves often seem grumpy and unhappy to be troubled with customers.
