Vanilla Bake Shop Restaurant Review

: Vanilla may be synonymous with bland, but at Vanilla Bake Shop, the tropical bean is an emblem of the bakery’s commitment to premium quality ingredients. Cupcakes are Vanilla’s primary focus, with a rotating menu of classic and creative flavors from red velvet to banana-chocolate chip. Ingredients are all natural, and the decorations are picture-perfect (which helps to justify the bakery’s high prices). We recommend ordering a variety of the bite-size cupcakes, which come in the same daily flavors as the full-size versions, to experience all the possibilities. Beyond cupcakes, Vanilla sells layer cakes by special order and by the slice in flavors from traditional chocolate to espresso to passion fruit cream.
