If you are just stopping in to snoop, look for the pink dot specials, those are discounted cupcakes! The key lime and cookie dough cupcakes are SOOOOO GOOD. Cheerfully decorated interior with room to sit and enjoy your sweets.

They have an impressive selection of cupcakes, cookies, and other desserts. I have found on more than one occasion that the cupcakes were slightly stale. With as much time as goes into every item, I'm sure they try to push the envelope, but at this...More
