LOVE the red velvet - not too much icing and not too sweet. Ordered mini red velvet cupcakes for the family and it was a hit.

We stopped here after dinner for our sweet tooth. We loved the chocolate peanut butter cupcake, the icing was smooth & absolutely delicious as well as the chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing. FYI there is only one table/chairs in the shop.

I tried the dark chocolate and peanut butter cupckae. The cupcake itself was moist and delicious, but the icing was amazing! We arrived only about an hour before closing and they had almost sold out...so go early!

Purchased some of the St Patrick's day themed cupcakes over the weekend. Service was friendly and helpful, the cakes themselves were moist and delicious.

We stopped after we left Los Cuates for dessert. My wife had a chocolate (what else),; my sister-in-law a coconut; I had a lemon and we got my brother-in-law a red velvet. My sister-in-law raved about the coconut; my wife said the chocolate was divine...More
