In addition to an amazingly good take-out and catering menu, Real Kitchen offers daily cupcakes for $2.50. I tried one with lemon frosting and filling from pastry chef Andrea Correa that tasted as good as it looked. The lemon flavor was bright and fresh without that metallic bite you get in some fruity cupcakes. Perfectly sized, too, with a good balance of frosting and cake.
A lot of places that offer cupcakes on the side don’t wow me, but I will be back for more cupcakes and to sample the other baked goods.
