Our Story

The Cupcake Lounge is Ottawa's leading retail bakery specializing in cupcakes. We offer all-natural, gourmet cupcakes baked fresh daily, made from the finest ingredients; no artificial flavours, lard, preservatives, or transfats, and iced by hand with a spatula; not piped. We also offer all kinds of cakes and other sweets, Swiss pressure-brewed coffee, and Ottawa's only cupcake & wine pairing lounge! Please note that we are not a nut-free bakery.

Come Visit Us

Come visit us in the Byward Market or Westboro and enjoy what many are saying is the best coffee in town! Our Swiss pressure-brewed coffee is always fresh and never sits in a pot. If you're a coffee lover, you'll rave about our latte!  Westboro has a bar menu with sparkling, white and red wines, ports and liqueurs, all selected to pair with our cupcakes! Try a cava or prosecco, a fruity moscato, or a white blend with a fruit- or vanilla-based cupcake. What about an organic malbec or a popular cab with a chocolate-, coconut-, or nut-based cupcake?  If you're in the mood for something sweet, a vintage port and chocolate cupcake will put you over the top!  With free wi-fi and jazz music, enjoy in the stylish comfort of our lounge!
