Poor service; disorganized, incomplete order, and although apologetic about mixups, the mixups still occurred.

too much icing on some of the cupcakes (vanilla and chocolate) makes them very hard to eat!

The first time I had Glitz cupcakes was about a year ago and they were great. This time I went with a Groupon deal and the cupcakes were obviously smaller (the cardboard holders were now too tall and were not effective at all at keeping the cupcakes from the sliding around). It was quite messy trying to take the cupcakes out (the icing tops were getting sliced off!). Maybe they sold too many Groupons and are trying to recover some costs, but if that will be the trend, I likely will stop going.

The service was wonderful but the product was not. The cupcakes were very dense in all flavours & of the daily choices for the day I wanted 4 of 6 flavours had the same cream cheese icing. The carrot ones all stuck to the papercup losing about 1/3 of the cupcake. There are lots of cc choices in Ottawa now & even another in the Byward area. When paying $3 a pop I expect an exceptional cupcake. These weren't as good as Thimblecakes or Flour Shop, but the staff were so nice I feel bad! I want them to try improve rather than just never go back.

From Our Editors

Constituting the sweetest site within ByWard Market, Glitz Cafe & Cupcake creates an enticing collage of flavour that rotates daily. Ditching a career in the financial industry in favour of something batter based, owner Vanessa D'Amours-Chenier keeps her stylish sweets shop well populated with her cup-sized creations—with clever names from Crazy Monkey to Coco Loco—that beckon to customers from within elegant glass cases. All Glitz's offerings, including ultra crisp caesar salads and flaky croissants, are made fresh each day according to Vanessa's strict baking standards, such as insisting on premium Belgian chocolate, real butter, and active volcanoes for ovens.
