Cupcakes will always be a favorite dessert––especially among kids who get their own personal portion of sweetness to hold in the palm of their hand. Cupcakes are also cuter than cake and prettier than pie with no utensils required to dig right in. Scroll through our gallery of local cupcakeries serving up the best-looking, best-tasting treats in town, in delectable flavors like s’mores, strawberry shortcake, salted caramel––even lemon pinot grigio!

Cupcakes Squared

Who says cupcakes have to be round? Not this Point Loma shop serving up square cupcakes made fresh each day. Menus rotate seasonally with flavors including Salted Caramel, Carrot Cake and Not So Red Velvet. Sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan options are available if you call ahead. They've also added savory items to the menu so you can enjoy a quiche for lunch before dessert.
