A coffee house, bakery, and cupcake shop all in one, Cupcake is the place to go for a quick meal, a caffeine boost, and a sweet treat. Adorned with a giant blue tea cup, this brick building houses a simple cafe, with a light-wood bar, glass deli cases lined with cupcakes, and a wall of freshly baked bread loves behind the counter. While the fair-trade organic coffee, scrambles made with cage-free eggs, and flatbread sandwiches are great for a meal, the cupcakes are the real stars. Popular flavors include the Paris Hilton (vanilla cake with sprinkle-covered frosting) and s'mores, and gluten-free treats are available too. Cupcake's shaded brick patio with wrought-iron tables is a great place for enjoying a mocha drink or an espresso-infused mocha cupcake.
