Very limited selection and quantity -- it was difficult to redeem Groupon

I had several unpleasant experiences at your establishment in my attempt to use my groupon. The first time I came on a day you were supposed to be open, during your regular business hours, and you were in fact not open. There was a shady hand written note about a recital or something. I had then wasted about an hour and half of my life driving there, not to mention the gas. The next time I came I was there on the day the groupon expired, and while I take some blame for this, there are two things I cannot forgive. The first is that I called ahead this time to make sure you were truly open before I drove all that way, and while you answered your phone and told me you were, you failed to mention that you were completely out pastries. The second and even less forgivable failure on your part is the way I was treated. I was up downed the second I walked in and the women behind the counter said, "you are here for the groupon?" in a voice of disgust. At this point I was alerted to the fact that there were in fact no pastries on the premises. The offer to use my groupon today to pick up some cupcakes tomorrow was a legitimately nice offer and appreciate your attempt to fix an unpleasant situation. While the women took my order, she seemed bothered by my questions and when I asked about prices she said “your groupon will cover this.” So I was fairly surprised when she said I owed two dollars at the end, but it was just two dollars and I would likely to not be mad at all if it wasn't for the other woman behind the counter who said to another customer, “it is really a shame for a paying customers that the groupon people got all the pastries.” I paid for my groupon, so I was a paying customer. Wasn't the idea of doing a groupon deal so that you could bring in new customers and show them you are a good place, and hopefully get return business? You clearly missed the point and made me feel bad and wasted oodles of my time in the process. The cupcakes weren't bad, but I have had better.

if you are going to sell those things at least cook them properly and do not do the filling until it cools down a little bit,sorry but it was not what I thought it was going to be:(

I used the coupon on the last day of the offer. They had about ten cupcakes left with no variety to choose from. When I asked if they would honor the coupon the next day when they would have more to choose from, the owner said no. Another woman walked in after me and she had the same problem only she had even less to choose from. I think this is very poor business on the part of the owner, and I personally will never go back.

Cupcakes look yummy but are far too sweet. I LOVE sweets but couldn't eat these. Too much in the middle, on the top and stuff on top of the top. Sadly to say we put the cupcakes in the trash because no one in my home could eat them due to the overdone combination and sweet. Sorry.
