Gourmet cupcakes and coffee, indoor seating.

Can a cupcake taste wholesome? Because this one did, but in a great way. Everything about this strawberry cupcake, with mostly chocolate and a dollop of strawberry buttercream frosting, smacked of just-milked, just-gathered, just-baked freshness. The cake was moist, moist, moist, in addition to being light, fluffy and barely sweet, and it completely allowed the icing to carry the sugar-ride. And what a ride! This was some uniquely excellent icing — thinner and creamier than most buttercreams, it spawned spontaneous images of happy cows in sunny pastures. Kavanaugh uses organic milk and local eggs — does that really make all the difference? This is one cupcake that doesn't permanently lodge in your stomach post-consumption, making you regret your sugar-cave for the rest of the day. Extra points for being open on Mondays.
