Good Denver Cupcakes: The Shoppe
There are tons of Good bakeries, coffee shops, and cupcake shops in Denver these days. One place to go to grab Good cupcakes is The Shoppe on E. Colfax.
On Sunday, some friends of ours threw an engagement party for us and my future sister-in-law brought cupcakes from The Shoppe.

Part of this is probably due to the fact that The Shoppe doesn’t have its name written on a sign outside, there is just a large, pink cupcake.
Nonetheless, when the cupcakes arrived at the engagement party this past weekend, they were definitely an eye-catcher. The Cookies and Cream cupcake, for example, comes with half of an Oreo standing upright in the frosting, the s’more cupcake comes with a graham cracker on top, and the key lime cupcake is garnished with a slice of lime. The cupcakes are impressive to look at, but the more you look at them, the more you want to eat them. Luckily, the taste does not disappoint; the cupcakes are delicious.
After thoroughly enjoying the cupcakes this Sunday, I stopped by The Shoppe today and found out that they have LOTS more Good and unique cupcake flavors. Piña colada, strawberry rhubarb, margarita, banana cream pie, and chocolate peanut butter were just some of the 30 or so different kinds of cupcakes they were offering today. I also found out that The Shoppe sells mini-pies (which are dangerously Good), and they also sell 25 different types of cereal by the bowl with the option of adding “tasty toppings” such as frosting, house made granola, and caramel syrup.
As if The Shoppe wasn’t “sweet” enough, I also found out today that it is open late: until 11pm Tuesday-Thursday and until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. And they deliver…
