Those of you who never want to read another word about cupcakes, stop reading now. Violet’s, raves luv2grub, is seriously the best. They’ve got eclectic flavors that push those nostalgia buttons, like Almond Joy (chocolate with coconut filling) and French toast (cinnamon cake with maple syrup frosting). Moist, with a delicate crumb and great flavor… they’ll definitely satisfy a sweet tooth. Especially since frosting is rather on the sweet side, as it usually is. Cupcakes, $2.25.
