As a former NYC resident I became accustomed to the terms Vegan and Gluten-Free, as they appealed to our health conscious and/or Jewish demographics. As a result I had my fair share of Vegan and/or Gluten-Free baked goods and unfortunately they just all tasted like cardboard. Sorry, eggs, milk and butter lay the foundation for cookies and cupcakes and lacking these ingredients just doesn't do baked goods justice! However, as an educator I am well aware of the children's allergies, so I'm always willing to find an exception.
My friends spoke highly of this little cupcake shop so I bought two dozen mini cupcakes (one lemon and one midnight) for an upcoming birthday party. The mini cupcakes are special orders so you need to phone in advance. However, they do sell these flavors in their regular sized cupcakes and let me tell you these are the best alternative cupcake that I've ever had. Both cupcakes were extremely moist and flavorful and I had to stop myself from eating more. One bite wonders!
I took away a star because the pricing is a bit high, though I can understand that the shop has special ingredients to accommodate patrons who abide by a vegan and/or gluten free lifestyle. I guess I'm thankful that I have options.

Vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free...yet there are still enough in these cupcakes and sweets to make them tasty.
Helpful service and an owner who really cares about ingredients.
Caution- items with quality ingredients are more expensive to make than ones with white flour and sugar, so they prices are a little higher to match their quality.Recommended for:Vegetarian
