    the cupcake I had was very good. I also had a cookie. I instantly felt sick. I then picked up one of their brochures and read gluten free is "optional ". what does that mean? so I suppose not everything there is gluten free and it's another place you have to ask the grand question "which ones are gluten free."

    They cross contaminate all of their toppings, I spoke to a manager. I had a plain cupcake with no toppings and still had an allergic reaction because the cupcakes were all touching. Disappointing that they wouldn't change such a small thing to make it safe.

    When I first had their gluten-free cupcakes about a year ago, they were very dry and they hadn't gotten their recipe quite right. But I've been there twice in the last two days and I love them. Super moist. My latest favorites are the GF Coconut Cupcakes, either the Chocolate or Vanilla, which is topped with cream cheese frosting and shredded coconut. But they also have GF Sweet Vanilla and GF Chocolate Velvet. All delicious, in regular or mini. I just wish that they would start having a monthly special that is GF. The GF cupcakes are displayed in a cake pedestal on top of the display case. While I'm extremely sensitive to gluten (I react at less than 20 parts per million), they do make the GF cupcakes in the same kitchen as the gluten cupcakes. Know your tolerance level.

    Same comment as GF B. A few choices. Was glad the GF cupcakes were kept on a separate display plate.
