Review: The place itself is sort of nice with its 50s flair and oldies being played in the background. Still, it kind of feels like sitting in a canteen with the tables being pushed together very close. When I went to Cupcake, the place was full to bursting and I was very lucky to get a single free seat by the window. There was a total of two different types of vegan cupcakes which were actually the same but with different icing. I usually like sweet and very sweet things but this was just too much even for me. The icing on my chocolate cupcake (that didn't taste of chocolate but only of sugar, but at least the texture was good) was like pure sugar and hardly edible. I freely admit that the American way of preparing food/sweets isn't my cup of tea and maybe I'm just ignorant to not appreciate a "real" American style vegan cupcake but I can't help it. The cupcake itself was very large, though, and I think 2,5€ for something as filling as a very big piece of cake is a reasonable price. I also had a hot chocolate with soya milk which cost 2,0€ and was also satisfyingly large and tasty. The staff was friendly. Unless you are a real sugar addict I wouldn't recommend going to Cupcake and try better cake at some other place.
