My friend, Zack, brought me to this restaurant called Burgers & Cupcakes. (Yes there is a place called Burger & Cupcakes.) You don't have to guess what they serve there because it's in the name. Zack brought me here as we had some catching up to do and he knows my guilty little pleasures of dessert. Surprise, surprise we had a burger and a cupcake. I think this place is the best of both worlds. Don't even think about stepping foot into this place if you're going to walk out guilty. I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of my meal. The cheeseburger I had was simply good and the cupcake was just the same. I love the idea of this place. It's simple and straight to the point. If you want a cheeseburger and a cupcake, there is a place to go.
Sprinkle's Chocolate Banana Cupcake
Another place for cupcakes is Sprinkles. I had previously visited this places in LA. This cupcake chain seems to be popping up all around and for good reason. This place not only has a Cupcake ATM, but it also has cookies and ice cream. The cupcake I had was the Chocolate Banana Cupcake. It was moist and delicious. The cupcake was smothered in frosting as some cupcake places love to do. It had the perfect amount of frosting that wasn't too sweet. The flavors meshed well together and I got to get it from their Cupcake ATM.
Coffee Cookies and Cream Cupcake
The last cupcake place I visited is called Georgetown Cupcakes located in SoHo. I was searching for a place to get cupcakes for our 4th of the July BBQ celebration, and I was in charge of bringing dessert. I came across this place on Yelp. What I liked about it was that it did seasonal and holiday cupcakes. I'm sure all the cupcake places do seasonal and holiday cupcakes, but I was intrigued by this place because from the pictures, their cupcakes looked unique. When I looked at their list of flavors, I was sold. I had to go. There were so many different unique flavors as well as Gluten free flavored cupcakes. I got a dozen cupcakes: Red Velvet 4th of July, Key Lim Cheesecake, Chocolate Sunday, Coffee Cookies and Cream, Salted Caramel, Lemon Blossom, Peanut Butter Fudge, Lava Fudge, Chocolate and Vanilla, Chocolate Ganache, Vanilla and Chocolate and Apple Cinnamon. I tried the Coffee Cookies and Cream cupcake. I was in heaven! I'm not big on frosting, but the frosting melted in my mouth. The cookies and cream frosting mixed perfectly with the coffee cupcake. It wasn't a strong coffee flavor, which was perfect. Just thinking about it makes me want to have another cupcake from Georgetown Cupcakes. I have to go back the next time I'm in town.
