After learning to bake at the apron strings of her Greek mother, owner and executive pastry chef Penny Karas says she brings the Greek Mother philosophy to Hello Cupcake, from the high-quality baked goods to the helpful and inviting staff. She also dabbles in the occasional matchmatching. When not matchmaking, Penny is busy offering customers an extensive line of daily flavors, including the classic vanilla and chocolate, of course, but not everyone sells carrot, lemon and peanut butter every day. If you're in the area, pick up a Pumpkin Spice cupcake spiced pumpkin cake, topped with brown sugar streusel, vanilla cream cheese frosting, and salted pepitas. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012



  • Great cupcakes
  • Best lemon cupcake in town!
  • Always a sweet treat fav. My top choices: Peanut Butter Blossom, You Tart!, and the Dulce de Leche.
  • Treat your sweet tooth here with scrumptious cupcakes like Gianduja, Triple Coconut, Dulce de Leche, You Tart!, Heart of Darkness, and Tiramisu.
  • Try the Strawberry Fields Cupcake - #sogood #nom
  • Try to get cupcakes early in the day, got a 4-pack half hour before closing and took the metro home, by the time they were consumed (when I hit the door) they weren't very moist.
  • Great vegan options!! And they have a different variety each day!!
  • 24 Carrot is decadent
  • Try the strawberry lemonade cupcake it is delicious. Lemon cupcake with strawberry icing only like Hello Cupcake can make it.
  • get a stamp on your "baker's dozen card" for each cupcake you buy - your 13th cupcake is free!
  • If you like chocolate, the "heart of darkness" is fantastic. They're as tasty as they are cute.
  • try the vanilla gorilla on a saturday, sunday, or monday. banana bread with vanilla cream cheese frosting!
  • My second favorite cupcakery. I love the Peanut Butter Blossom flavor and the banana with cream cheese frosting.
  • Every cupcake you could want & better than those other places. This is the cupcake shop. I like the "You Tart" (lemon).
  • Peanut Butter Blossom = awesomeness! Super-nice staff!
  • Try hoc hazelnut...the ganache frosting with crunchy hazelnuts is amazing
  • Veggies beware - the Maple cupcake has bacon on it...which they leave out when you ask. They just told me it was candied pecans.
