We had the opportunity to check out CutiePie Cupcakes & Co‘s new Espresso Coffee Bar at 235 Spadina Avenue at their store launch party last week, where they sell their famous cakes, cupcakes, ice creams, speciality WhoopiePies, and a new addition, The LattePie (nicknamed the ‘Unicorn Latte’).
Although CutiePie had been around since 2009 catering special parties and events, the cheerful and bright espresso bar marks their first jump to a storefront where their dessert loving fans can walk off the street and grab a cupcake or latte.
They offer so many yummy flavors it’s ridiculous. We’re fans of their mini Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake and Birthday Cake Brulee cupcakes, $1.75 each. They also offer bigger versions called ‘Chubby Pies’ which go for $3.50. And you can’t miss their signature Whoopie Pies (basically, 2 cupcakes smashed together in sandwich form).
We also tried their ‘Unicorn Latte’. Though usually not coffee drinkers, we found the 2 shots of espresso (which you can get hot or cold) the perfect amount, on top of which comes cotton candy infused milk, topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a mini Whoppie Pie on a stick.
And if you’re like us and one treat just isn’t enough, CutiePie offers many different types of packages that combine virtually any of the above, perfect for birthdays, office parties, and special events.
Seriously, we love CutiePie Cupcakes and their ‘sweet’ little shop, it makes us happy just thinking about it. You should go!
