Today we ventured off to the faraway land of Soho which brought us a taste of an even farther away land: Georgtown Cupcakes. Located on 111 Mercer Street, Georgetown Cupcake avoids the hustle and bustle of Broadway shopping, while still allowing access to it. While being in a very busy area, Georgtown surprisingly does not get overwhelmingly busy, but remains steady with a line that moves pretty quickly (unless you’re there in the December, when everyone decides to come to New York, and the city turns into a tourist battle zone).
Beware, Georgetown has daily flavors, which may vary slightly everyday, so if you’re going for a specific flavor make sure to check beforehand. Georgetown also has seasonal flavors with seasonal decorations, which are always a plus.
Let’s get to taste. Georgetown cupcakes are not only pleasing to the eye, but also delicious. The frosting is as creamy as it can be, and the cake is moist. The only drawback to this is that eating a Georgetown cupcake on its own could be challenging. Its richness can be too much for amateur cupcake eaters, so a drink and a partner to share are advised.
As for flavors, there are vegan and gluten-free options, signature options that are available everyday. To be honest, I haven’t had a single bad cupcake from Georgetown (and yes, even the eggless milkless vegan ones are amazing).
The peanut butter fudge is my favorite, and the banana split and red velvet come as close seconds.
Pricing for cupcakes are $3 for a single cupcake, $16.50 for half a dozen, $32 for a dozen.
