What A Treat

Molly’s Cupcakes has hung another shingle, this time in Streeterville. This new location is larger than the N. Clark original, and it’s outfitted in vintage school-inspired style. There are two large communal tables and plenty of two-tops, so you can enjoy the baked-from-scratch-daily cupcakesthere or take ‘em out. The cookie dough-filled Cookie Monster, festive Cake Batter, and decadent Cookies ‘n Cream cupcakes are popular among the pint-sized set (the Cupcake Wars-winning Peach Cobbler is also pretty amazing). Classic non-filledcupcakes are $2.50 (choose your own cake flavor, frosting, and topping), center-filled cupcakes are $3.75, and mini cupcakes are $1.45; they’re also sold by the dozen. There’s stroller parking in the lobby and an elevator if you take it with you.

Molly’s Cupcakes is located at 419 E. Illinois St., Streeterville; 312.600.6326
