Try it!

I stumbled across Joy Cupcakes on a day out in the city. I tried first to visit my favourite cafe on South Bank, only to discover they had already shut off their coffee machine to make way for the night crowds. Believe me, I will never look back

Joy Cupcakes have a HUGE range of cupcakes with a fair position of gluten free and vegan options (no dairy or eggs, right?). Plus, cupcakes that are gluten, egg and milk free. Oh my lord, I could barely contain my enthusiasm.

I got a Chocolate on Chocolate, Vegan cupcakes. Yes, I said Vegan and Chocolate in the same sentence. YAY.

I also ordered a soy latte. It was delicious. The atmosphere is good, with just one long table to service all the patrons in this tiny shop front.

My only gripe? The cupcakes and coffee were all served in paper. While their cake boxes are adorable, I would have liked some china (and a fork). Never mind. It was late in the day.
