I had been here before and loved it. I think they must have changed hands. The cupcakes were very dry and had no flavor. They girls working there had no idea about the cupcakes.

Hi Barbara, oh no! I'm dismayed to hear this! I am still definitely the owner and our manager and bakers have each been at this location for quite a while. I will pass along your feedback to the manager (who is wonderful) and see what could have happened... do you happen to remember what flavor(s) you had and what day you were there?

You can never go wrong with a cupcake from here. They have lots of options which makes it hard to get just one. I love that they have a vegan option also.

We came her especially because they make vegan cupcakes, and I bought them ALL! We live in Sumter so this was an extra special treat. They were very sweet, so could do with being a little less so, but overall a good cake

Thank you so much for your review, Jennie! I'm so glad you enjoyed our vegan cupcakes, and I love that you came all that way - though I wish I wasn't quite so much of a trek! We'd love to see you again and will have more vegan cupcakes on offer when you make the trek next. Much appreciated!

Amazing cupcakes, my personal fav is the red velvet ones but I'm also partial to the Black and White.

Thank you for your kind review, NarrowMender! (I must admit I'm partial to those two cupcakes as well) Our bakery crews and I really appreciate you taking the time to review us and let us know what you liked. Have a wonderful day!

They have a slew of all different flavors of cupcakes! I have been in a while back but always forget they are around until a special event comes up. It was a friend of mine's birthday last week and his favorite flavor is Coconut so I called and they had a "Loco for Coco" flavor available. I stared at all of the cupcakes like a kid in a candy store. I have bought some for my office before and they always get rave reviews. The taste is delicious! The cupcakes seem to most persons to be high in cost but for as big as they are and as delicious I would actually say it's reasonable ($5 ea), especially when you pay at least $8-10 for dessert at other restaurants.

GraceyJC, thank you so much for your review! You've really made our day. The Loco for Coco is a favorite around here so your friend has good taste! (I should note that our regular cupcakes are actually $3.15 each, but if you enjoyed any of our gluten free, vegan, or After Dark alcohol-infused cupcakes, which are $3.95, or our Cake Shakes, which are $5.95, with tax it would be nearer the $5 range you mentioned ... and I am definitely with you re: restaurant desserts!) I will share your review with our bakery crew; they will be absolutely delighted.
