Enjoyed today’s flavour which was death by chocolate - so fresh and obviously premium ingredients. Would give it five stars if they had more than one flavour!!! A go to place if you have missed having a cake.

Very good cupcake. I had the Cinnamon Bun cupcake which is the Sunday offering, check their menu online for the daily offering of gluten free and plan the day you are going.

I'd give it 5 stars if they had s bigger variety. They have one Gluten Free cupcake flavor each day. the vanilla with coconut was 5 stars. The carrot cake the next day was very good, too, but I really wanted another vanilla with coconut frosting.

They have one flavor a day at the downtown location and don’t make all that many. But what they do make, they take standard precautions. They are baked in the same oven, but not at the same time, and they are housed in the same display case, but they don’t touch. They had a staff member on hand who could explain and also add the disclaimer that they can’t guarantee. The fact that they could tell me details and a disclaimer is usually a sign to me that they are low risk. I ate two and I did not get glutened or ill. They were incredible - the first cupcake I’ve had in almost a year!

They have one gluten-free flavor a day so if it's not a flavor you're into you're out of luck!

One gluten free cupcake option (today chocolate salted caramel). Was pretty good overall. They only offer gluten free option 5 out of 7 days a week, so call to be sure they have them when you are thinking of heading here!

The cupcakes were fine, if anything a bit hard. The icing was really good, though!

We made a special trip downtown just for a GF cupcake. There was only 1 option, a chocolate chip cupcake. It was stale tasting and dry. Save yourself the trouble and just get them to give you the icing by itself, it was delicious.

This location now has a daily gf selection. We had key lime gf cupcakes. They had great texture and flavor. We are very sensitive and did great. They did have the gf in the same case, but on top to the side. They were very careful.

A M A Z I N G!!!! They only have GF on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Luckily we were here on a Saturday. I thought for sure they would have been sold out by the time I got there. But they had some. It's awesome that they offer gf cupcakes. So rare to find fresh cupcake.

The Red Velvet cupcakes were wonderful! While they only offer one or two flavors on their gf days, that's more than most places offer. I'm just happy to have a place to eat a cupcake with non-gf friends. The gf cupcakes were on a separate tray but in the same case as all the others. We did not have any problems, though, and have eaten there several times.

Cupcakes were in the same case as regular ones. I got one to go and instead of putting it in a box, they dropped it down in a sack, and of course the frosting stuck to the inside of it. It was very small, NOT worth nearly $4. All that being said, if did taste okay, and the staff was friendly. That's why it gets 2 stars instead of just one.

Stopped by while on vacation for Gluten Free Tuesdays. The GL cupcakes were excellent - two different types were available the day I stopped by and both were impressive. Staff was helpful and courteous.

This was the best gluten free cupcake I’ve had in my entire life! I’m not from South Carolina so I can’t speak for other bakeries in the area, though. I had a gf lemon cupcake that was extremely moist and not crumbly (like most gf cupcakes I’ve tried). Perfect balance of cake and frosting as well. A must-try!! May or may not visit Columbia again just because of this cupcake shop....

Gluten free option each day which varies. Unfortunately not a lot of other options. I’ve had a great GF cupcake and one really dry one. Staff is friendly.
