a new favorite place

Whenever we go to OKC, I always request to go to at least one of my three favorite places: Full Circle Books, Paper Crown, or my new favorite, Cuppies & Joe. This past Saturday, we went to the latter two, and I was a happy girl :)

First of all, I just think their logo is the cutest ever.

They have yummy cupcakes...with lots of different flavors...I like the "Mint for each other"--chocolate with mint buttercream and crushed andes mints on top--but I will branch out next time and try something new. I got the kiddos a "Mary Poppins" to split...strawberry with strawberry cream cheese. It's good too!

I love their display case...wish I could have gotten a better picture, but it was crowded and I only had my 50mm lens. Oh well. Each flavor of cupcake has its own unique display piece--exactly what I would do if I owned a cupcake bakery...I love pretty display dishes!

The atmosphere is cozy but clean...with whimsical photography on the walls...lots of different rooms with an assortment of cozy chairs and painted tables and chairs. If I'm remembering right, there might be a fireplace...but I could also be imagining that!

The people who work there are very friendly and helpful (especially if you're indecisive like me!) I always get milk to go with my cupcake, but Brent says their coffee is good. I'm looking forward to a date night in OKC so that we can just relax and enjoy the atmosphere...instead of getting the cuppies to go!
And oh yeah, they also make these Oreo sugar cookies (called Cami-o's) that are delicious. Maybe better than a cupcake. Maybe. I plan on creating my own version of these and when I get it right, I'll share the recipe.

In the meantime, visit Cuppies & Joe next time you're in OKC!

Even though I'm allergic to cupcakes (wheat), I REALLY enjoyed this post. Yumm-mmmy. I need to make me some gluten-free cupcakes, I'm thinking... and pretty soon. :)

Glad you had fun! :)

Just linked over here from Studio Calico.

This is too funny! I was just at Cuppies & Joe last Thursday. My daughter and I took a mini-vacation from Ohio so we could visit our old home town of Edmond. I had heard about the new Cuppies place from several places. I'm working on a page this weekend about it. I'll post it at Studio Calico after that.
