Cupcakes à la Crêpes à Latte


Yellow Cake with Strawberry Frosting

I keep finding cupcakes in unexpected locations. The latest find is at Crêpes à Latte, just off the Irving Park Brown Line stop. This little café bakes all their own goods daily. I’ve only tried one, but I’m impressed enough to go back.

The yellow cake was moist, sweet and didn’t need frosting. However, I’m glad it did because the strawberry frosting was perfect — without the metallic hint you can find in fruity frostings. My only complaint? Too many sprinkles add crunch, not interest.

Cupcakes are $2.49. Flavors vary.
