Alison Michele Baker

Stopped in on a whim yesterday as I walked out of Condado's happy hour. I picked up a few cupcakes as a hospitality gift for my friend's birthday. I also splurged and got myself a chocolate truffle. SO GOOD. It was decadent and rich; premium quality. Elena was at the front counter and she was so helpful. You can tell she takes pride in work and loves what she does. Thank you for a great experience, I will definitely be back!

The cupcakes we had in the store were delicious and we couldn't choose from the numerous cake options and ended up taking four different ones home to try this week! Adorable store front and great staff.
