We went to this bakery after our lunch next door at the Blue Cactus. It was a really nice treat and they had a pretty good variety of cupcakes. Prices were ok seeing how it is located in the Byward Market.

Amazing and creative flavours, always fresh and lots of icing for every bite. Extremely nice staff and custom orders.

Always stop in when nearby. Delicious cupcakes. Different flavours daily. Perfect frosting. Thick sweet and creamy.

We used to go there 3 years ago to get a scrumptious cupcake. Went there today and was disappointed to see how smalk the cupcakes were. 4,75$ +tax for a tiny cupcake. They might still be good but I'll have to pass. Sorry.

If you want something delicious and you like cupcakes this place is for you. Very small and personable staff. Great place to have a glass of wine with the flavour of the day. It's a must if you're visiting the city

Tried The Cupcake Lounge for the first time spontaneously while looking for a nice cafe to get some work done. The amount of cupcake selection they had was positively-overwhelming, I wanted to try them all! I ordered an almond raspberry cupcake and a small white...More
