Molly's Cupcakes

Great vegan cupcake, limited vegan variety

rating star

By far the best vegan cupcakes I've had in the city. The cake is super dense and moist, and the icing isn't too sweet. I only wish they had more vegan options-right now you can only choose between chocolate and vanilla cake and icing, which is strange to me because the cashier told me the owner is vegan.

Molly's a cool, cozy little coffee shop in a nice neighborhood. The interior is bright and it even has a counter area (with swings!) to sit with some cupcakes and the newspaper.

They only offer two varieties of vegan cupcakes, chocolate and vanilla, but they're good ones. The chocolate one ($2.20 with tax) decadent, moist and delicious; that said, they're also very dense and I had one non-vegan friend say he thought they were too thick and heavy to really compete with a "real" cupcake.

If Molly's had a few more vegan flavors this place would be an absolute gem. As it stands, it's pretty rocking and a good place to check out.

Molly's has two kinds of vegan cupcakes currently - vanilla and chocolate. They're pretty good, a bit dense, and the frosting has improved since I first tried them out. Hopefully they will add more vegan desserts in the future.
