Review: Cups in La Jolla
August 26, 2010 § Leave a comment
Lactovegetarians are getting the shaft during this cupcakery phenomenon, but a rare few are offering eggless options. Cups in La Jolla is one of those and offers both a vegan (such as Vanilla Bean, Strawberry Tea Cup, Great Pumpkin, Cookies n’ Cream, and Chocolate Cheesecake) and gluten free option everyday. We stopped in today and had the Peachy Keen cups, which were dense with a crunchy exterior and syrupy peach fruit filling. The buttercream was just perfect: soft, fluffy, and not too sweet.
Cups is a good coffee shop alternative and a great option for catering a celebratory event, but I wouldn’t make a trip just for the cupcakes if you’re comfortable enough in the kitchen to whip up a quick batch from a Duncan Hines box. The cupcakes are good, but not amazing (although, I’ll need to try the Strawberry Tea Cup, Pumpkin and Chocolate Cheesecake to support this claim; I’m def. going back!!). Try stopping in on weekdays to take advantage of the two for one specials. The cupcakery offers free wifi and turns into a lounge after dark. Cups is located on Girard Ave. and is open from 10am-10pm.
