mama & baby cupcakes in {la jolla}…



Cups in La Jolla is like a bakery and lounge in one…offering up fun-filled organic cupcake flavors in an upbeat atmosphere {there's an actual DJ spinning beats!}. The two "cup" sizes {big for $4 and small for $2} provides portion control for when you want to taste test a few different flavors or just need a little sweetness to hit the spot. The PB cup {chocolate cup with creamy peanut butter cream covered in gold flecked chocolate} and the Coco Limey {Coconut-lime cup topped with creamy kaffir lime-white chocolate
ganache} were favorites of the day. In terms of beverages, their Thai coffee hits the spot just right…a warm {and not too sweet} take on
the traditional Thai iced drink.

Final thoughts…3.5 out of 5 happy ladies for creative flavors, size options, and delicious coffee drinks. They do offer gluten-free and vegan options for those with dietary restrictions which is a rare find in San Diego bakeries. If you're not into loud music blasting from the live DJ inside, enjoy a cupcake and coffee in the sunshine at the faux mini patio right outside.
