Cupcakes, America to the Core?

23 Apr

My friend, KTG, sent me a link to an online deal for a diner/brunch/cupcake place, American Cupcake.  I was captivated by the website and decided to buy this online deal.  I think the deal was $15 for two entrees and two cocktails.

We got the Bacon Sausage Omelette, Trio of Benedicts, Salted Caramel Pancakes, a bloody mary and mimosa.  The food was pretty good, and with the deal, totally worth it.  But without a discount, I wouldn’t spend $15 for eggs benedict anywhere.  The pancakes were probably the best dish, hahaha.  And I liked how my bloody mary had a slice of bacon in it.  Yum!

I still had to try their cupcakes, since it is what they’re named after.  I tried the most colorful ones, Lemon, Coconut, Bubblegum, and Cotton Candy.  I really liked the cupcakes; they were very moist and buttery, but they were just yellow cake.  The only difference were the various colored frosting which were flavored, but the cakes weren’t so I was a little disappointed about that.  I was hoping for something totally different, like bubblegum flavored cake!

All in all, I may come back here eventually, but not anytime soon.  The decor was extremely fun and cute.  If I had  a girlfriend visiting who likes novelty stores like this, I’d take her here.
