Why we love it:

Owner Wendy Velthoven had apparently dreamed of opening her own cupcake shop since well, umm...forever and Capital Oh is glad she finally realized her incredibly delicious dream!! The adorable interior and delicious gluten-free options (shout out to my lovely best friend, Sophie!) make Ottawa's Thimblecakes the next place you should go and indulge at. I'll let J give you the full scoop... *begins drooling* -S

This new cupcake shop opened about three weeks ago on Bank, and it is a very welcomed sweet surprise. The cupcakes are delicious, moist and fantastically cute (they also serve coffees and teas!). Another cool thing about Thimble Cakes is there guaranteed sugar-free and gluten-free options, plus all of their original (and possibly dangerous?) recipes. I got the chance to try the Spicy Chocolate (an slightly unusual combination perhaps?) and it was delish! My friend Grant came along and tried the Strawberry Cheesecake cupcake and also had nothing but good things to say about the taste. The atmosphere is super friendly, and they've got a bunch of vintage furniture that is comfy enough to make you stay a while. Go satisfy that sweet tooth craving, you won't be disappointed! -J
