The Coffee Shop AZ

This afternoon myself, Scott, and my cousin Odessa drove down to The Coffee Shop in Gilbert, AZ. During the month of July The Coffee Shop won during an episode of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network channel (the one featuring Duff from Ace of Cakes). Anyways, we all decided that we needed to try these famous cupcakes, so off to Gilbert we went.

Scott, rocking his new Ray-Ban Clubmasters!

The Coffee Shop!

The interior of The Coffee Shop is seriously so cute, and definitely a place you can sit and relax (even though it can get a little hot in there during the AZ summer).

The pictured case had a few different flavors of cupcakes (there probably would have been more if we would have gone earlier in the morning), and it was pretty hard for me to choose just one.

Odessa decided to get a vanilla w/pink frosting and sprinkles:

Scott and I also each got a Boston Cream cupcake that looked like this:

I only tried the Boston Cream, but it was seriously so good, and so worth the drive out to Gilbert.

On a side note, we sat at a little table off of the ordering area, and took cute photos to commemorate our visit.

Cousins! Think we look anything alike?

Have any of you been to The Coffee Shop yet, or any other Cupcake Wars winners' shops? What's your favorite kind of cupcake?



  1. You are all so cute! :) I've never been anywhere that's won Cupcake Wars, but I have eaten at a place that won Bobby Flay's Throwdown, or whatever it's called. (The same place was also featured on Dirty Jobs haha.)

  2. I have a serious interest in cupcakes and they both look gorgeous! Love that you would take a drive to get some! My favourite cupcake is Hummingbird bakery in Londons rose flavoured cupcake - just heaven. I also tried a peanut butter and chocolate cupcake which was amazing! Cool looking little coffee shop x

  3. Thank you for writing about your experience, if I'm ever in AZ, I will definately drop in!

  4. That place looks adorable, with delicious cupcakes. My personal favorite is a yummy red velvet, with cream cheese or buttercream frosting. mmmm. I also love anything lemon. Or vanilla with milk chocolate icing. Haha, I could go on and on. <3
