Loved the macaroons: pineapple sage & lemon raspberry. Both were truly excellent!

Cupcakes were just okay: the cupcake themselves very moist and light. However each was missing the hit of the flavor. Lemon cream: was more cream than lemon. Khalua Chocolate: again missing at flavor of Khalua.

Overall nice place. Clean. The staff was very nice and helpful.

I have custom ordered milk chocolate and peanut butter/jelly macarons several times now since I discovered this hidden gem in september 2015. Chris, one of the employees, has always been so helpful and kind. The macarons speak for themselves, they are so fresh and chewy in the middle, as they should be! Their website and facebook page are also so helpful, shows a variety of flavors and pictures of the macarons!

I visited this bakery Friday night and had a vanilla, carrot, red velvet and chocolate cupcake. I thought it was okay but not great. I have had better. Great service.

We were really excited to go to The Sweet Lobby, having been on 'Cupcake Wars' we thought the cupcakes would be absolutely outstanding. It was disappointing that the location was tiny, definitely take out only- no seats or even standing tables. The cupcake selection was small and the service, well- bored? impatient? Taking our treats to go, they were just not all that great. Really nothing worth going out of the way to get... Save your money and grab something at the Dunkin' Donuts next door. At least you get what you pay for at Dunkin'.
