Hampton Roads Original Cupcake Bakery

At the direction of government and health officials, we will be closed until further notice. The safety of our guests and team members remains our highest priority. We value your patronage and look forward to welcoming you back when we are advised that it is safe to do so.

Opened for business in 2008, Carolina Cupcakery is considered one of the country’s very first cupcake bakeries. Our menu includes 365 flavors of all natural, scratch baked cupcakes in creative flavors, and some inspired by cocktail drinks. We have something for everyone! Food allergy versions include vegan, gluten free, nut free and sugar free, all baked in a dedicated kitchen. 

Our Waterside location combines cupcakes with specialty coffees, espresso drinks, and snacks  for  Norfolk’s downtown harbor visitors.

Carolina Cupcakery has been featured in many popular reality shows including Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, Extreme Home Makeover, and HGTV’s House Hunters.
