We always get the miniature vanilla cupcake which is divine. All of their cupcakes are made from quality ingredients and they taste like it. Top off your dinner at the Oxbow with a sweet cupcake. We will be back!

What a great selection of flavors and no matter what time of day you to, first thing in the morning, or late in the evening, they are always so fresh and so tasty. At $3.50 each (2.25 for minis but who wants a mini cupcake?!) it is always hard to decide what flavor so we usually get many! Peanut Butter... More

I have been here twice. The last time they had a spice cupcake but they were limited this visit on flavors. We bought $60 worth of cupcakes. Love these. Very good and a nice splurge. Love the coconut ones!

My daughter was very happy to find gluten free cupcakes at this Oxbow Market location! When we visited they only had vanilla with chocolate frosting and chocolate with coconut vanilla frosting. She really enjoyed it very much but I think $3.25 for a regular size cupcake is absurd! The little tiny one bite size were $2.50 I think. Good but... More

One of the days we ended up having breakfast in the market and noticed Kara's cupcakes just opening up. They have a great clean presentation. The wife picked up 3 different cupcakes but none of them were really that good. This could be that we are from chicago where we have a lot of great cupcake options, but we could... More

Really enjoyed our cupcakes here. Was a little sad they had very few kinds available, as we would have liked to sample some more! What we had was delicious.

These cupcakes looked really good, but the person working there seemed almost annoyed to be there. Her karma must have rubbed off on the cupcakes because they were dry and tasteless, and the buttercream icing tasted terrible.
