Tour Partner Spotlight: Carytown Cupcakes
In this partner spotlight, we’ll take a look at a shop that puts a fun spin on an old classic: Carytown Cupcakes!
You won’t miss Carytown Cupcakes while strolling through Carytown – it stands out with its bright pink storefront, even among the eclectic array of boutiques in this eccentric Richmond shopping district. And believe us, you won’t want to miss it. The menu features 9 different classic cupcake flavors, plus 5 or more additional flavors each week centered around a theme, so you’re sure to find one you’ll love, no matter what your tastes. And it doesn’t end at cupcakes, either. Carytown Cupcakes features a small handful of beverages on tap – beers, ciders, wines, and even prosecco (yep, prosecco on tap).
Pair your cupcake with a beverage, perhaps listen to some live music (on Fridays and Sundays), and maybe you’ll find your new favorite happy hour spot.
River City Food Tours Sample Item
When you visit Carytown Cupcakes on the Carytown Food Tour or the Carytown Sweets Tour, you’ll get to sample two different cupcake flavors. Since the shop changes its flavor theme each week, you never know what you might get, but we can say that Peanut Butter Oreo makes a frequent appearance on the tour menu!
Something Else To Try
During the summer, Carytown Cupcakes offers ice cream sandwiches! That’s homemade ice cream between two homemade cookies, and if that isn’t a heavenly-sounding treat, then we don’t know what is. Just as with the cupcakes, the flavors often change, which just means you’ll have to reward yourself regularly.
Carytown Cupcakes is located in Carytown, at 3111 W. Cary St. There is on-street parking and a nearby parking garage on Colonial Ave.
