Lulu's Sweet Shoppe Restaurant Review

: Lulu's Sweet Shoppe offers cupcakes in daily changing varieties that range from the sweet, like the blueberry cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie dough, to the savory (think pistachio with port wine). You can also head back in time with the retro candy selection of Charleston Chews, licorice, gumballs, Pop Rocks, candy cigarettes and gourmet confections available by the pound. We like the homemade cookies and ice cream in flavors such as Thai tea coconut and green tea with ginger served in a cone or dish to take on a stroll around the North End. Note: This place was formerly located at 57 Salem St.
