Cupcake Jones was the utopian dream of Portland natives Lisa Watson and Peter Shanky, who believed you could simultaneously better a community while treating its taste buds. The menu is entirely handcrafted from scratch with fresh high-end ingredients such as madagascar bourbon vanilla, fresh whole eggs, and food colorings made from fruit instead of unicorn tears. Cupcake Jones's roster of jumbo ($3.25) and mini ($1.50) cupcakes is constantly rotating both daily and monthly. May's monthly flavors include the decadent devil's-food cake and sour-cream chocolate ganache of the Downtown Cupcake Brown, The Pearl's white-velvet cake filled with vanilla-bean pastry cream, and the red-velvet cake of the Velvet Painting. Ease the cakey delights down with a selection of beverages including Izze soda, Tazo tea, and Bridgetown coffee.
With a conscience as sweet as its confectionary offerings, Cupcake Jones donates leftover cupcakes to the homeless every week and has also donated to the Boys & Girls Club, a local animal shelter, and various LGBT groups. Every possible thing is recycled and biodegradable, nonaerosol cleaners are used, and deliveries are made exclusively by public transportation, zip car, and air cannon.
