House of Cupcakes has a wide variety of delicious cupcakes priced so that most people can afford buying only one for themselves, or buying for special occaisions only. If money is no object, I definitely recommend trying these (especially the pina colada)

They had a whole wall of cupcakes with so many varieties to choose from. It would take a good 15 minutes to decide what you wanted. In addition they had giant chipwich ice cream sandwiches, macroons and a ton of chocolate covered pretzels.

Whenever I am in Princeton I have to stop in and buy a couple. I usually get something with chocolate or a coffee flavor. I have never had a better cupcake. Pure decadence !!

The House of Cupcakes is a quaint little place near Princeton university. We ordered the pina colada cupcake and a chocolate chip cookie. Both very tasty and well presented. The staff were courteous and friendly. Will definitely return for more Cupcakes.
