I usually enjoy Cupcake Charlies, but when I went to the Newport, RI spot on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, I was underwhelmed. Not only was the selection small, all of the cupcakes that I purchased were not fresh or even tasty. In fact, by the next day, the frosting had hardened. Very disappointing for this establishment.

They have some delicious cupcakes here. We each bought one and shared with each other. The service was great and it was very clean. Stop in for a snack!

Well you have a glorious cup cake and what ...that's right they will mash your choice of cupcake into quite possibly the best soft serve vanilla ice cream I've ever had (trust me I've eaten a lot of ice cream) - please be sure you stop here and try this wonderful invention - it's pretty big though I might share...

A very nice young woman was working at Cupcake Charlie's when we visited. I ordered a whirlie with a chocolate peanut butter cupcake and twist soft-serve ice cream. It was really good!

Apparently all of the Navy guys swear by this place which is how I ended up here when I visited my husband. They went here on liberty for dessert and loved it! Apparently they were on the show Cupcake Wars and deserving-ly so. They have something called a whirley and it's wonderful. You pick a cupcake and your flavor ice... More

A cute little cupcake shop full of delicious treats to eat. We both decided to get the soft serve ice cream swirl. The ice cream was perfect. Nice flavor and creamy smooth. There are a few tables to sit at in the nice cool air conditioned shop. As we sat there and licked away people kept coming in and ordering... More

Went to Newport RI for a few hours and was planning to have lunch there. We couldn't settle on a place until we passed Cupcake Charlie's. Once we looked in the window it was a done deal! It was so good that if we didn't have to be somewhere else, we would have stayed for dinner. By far, the freshest... More

Stopped by around 8:30 pm and not many cupcakes left. I got the Carrot Cake one and the chocolate and Vanilla one. Moist and icing was delicious. Better to go in earlier as later in eve. not many left. Would go again.
