Before cupcakes went all crazy trendy, Cupcake was around with fun little cakes (try the chocolatey Clair Huxtable) and a solid cafe menu. Baking all bread at the University location means the paninis and sandwiches are fresh and right on, especially when made with the Prospect Park sourdough. Owner Kevin VanDeraa won the top title on Food Network's Cupcake Wars.
