There is no better place for a quick shot of sugar than Coastal Cupcakes, where all of the cupcakes ($2.25) are made fresh every morning. Cupcake bakers and business partners Meredith Sullivan and Kristen Beckmeyer opened the storefront to help patrons satisfy their craving for sweets.
The menu has a combination of regular flavors like Casual Chocolate, Flip Flop Vanilla, Cabana Coconut, and Key Lime Krazy as well as special flavors like Carrot Cake, Caramel Apple Crumb, and Peanut Butter Pirate that are only offered on certain days of the week.
There is even a special section of the menu devoted to breakfast cupcakes, like blueberry cupcakes topped with maple cream cheese frosting for the morning munchies.
The shop is small and unimpressive but the colorful cupcakes and vanilla scent make up for the decor.
